 James A. Yorke
Professor Yorke, his collaborators, and his students actively investigate the dynamics of chaotic processes, that is of deterministic processes that exhibit irregular oscillations that persist indefinitely.
Professor Yorke is perhaps best known to the general public for coining the mathematical term "chaos" with T.Y. Li in a classic paper entitled "Period Three Implies Chaos".
An internationally recognized dynamicist, Professor Yorke has done extensive research in areas ranging from stability of ordinary differential equations to modeling the growth processes of contagious diseases to a vast array of areas in the field of chaotic dynamics.
