Nonlinear Analysis Core
The Core currently has expertise in the following methods.
Annual Nonlinear Analysis Workshop
Every year the Core holds a workshop centered on the nonlinear analysis of human movement. Its purpose is to introduce research scientists, clinicians, educators and students to a variety of nonlinear methods. For more information please visit the Workshop’s webpage.
The Core offers online tutorials over different nonlinear analysis topics. Each tutorial will be broken up into two different two-hour sessions. If you are interested in attending a tutorial, please provide your information.
- Entropy October 22nd/29th, 2020 from 1-3 PM Central Time
- Surrogation February 18th/25th, 2021 from 1-3 PM Central Time
The current rate is $50 per hour.
