Fellowship Project Summary
FL230100088 - Breakthrough mathematics for dynamical systems and data
Professor Froyland aims to create a step change in the mathematics we use to learn actionable information from dynamical systems and dynamical data. Using a ground-breaking, operator-theoretic approach to analyse high dimensional systems and spatiotemporal data, this project expects to generate new knowledge in the modelling of complex systems and new pathways for unsupervised machine learning. By developing new mathematical tools and practical algorithms this project will enable us to better discover hidden patterns in complex spatiotemporal data, providing social and economic benefits by improving the characterisation and prediction of key Australian climate drivers, which are connected to droughts, heatwaves, bushfires and major flooding. Professor Froyland’s research will also shed new light on social processes such as opinion spreading and the formation of consensus.
