Visualization and Dynamical Systems
When asked to explain what my mathematics is about, I often answer by showing pictures illustrating the behavior of the dynamical systems I study. Non-mathematicians usually respond with interest, at least polite interest but sometimes much more. They often express amazement that my pictures are in any way related to mathematics. Mathematicians are also often interested, but many (fewer as time goes on) dismiss what I do as some sort of “fad math” devoid of theorems.
