What is... topological dynamics?

This page hosts information on Peter Krautzberger's talk "What is ... topological dynamics?" at the WhatIsSeminar.

Abstract

Topological dynamics is the abstract version of dynamical systems consisting of nothing else but a compact, Hausdorff space X and a continuous function f on X. Since this setting is very basic, I hope to offer an easy introduction to the basic phenomena, e.g. recurrence, proximality, maybe even chaos, while allowing for the discussion of some deeper results, e.g. the Ellis-Auslander Theorem.
