In Search of Governing Equations: SINDy as a Tool in Model Discovery
Series: Program in Applied Mathematics Brown Bag Seminar
Location: ONLINE
Presenter: Bill Fries, Program in Applied Mathematics, University of Arizona

In this talk, I will discuss the Sparse Identification of Nonlinear Dynamics (SINDy), a model discovery tool developed at the University of Washington. I will give an overview of the method as well as discussing its potential and limitations in dynamical systems and partial differential equations through concrete examples. This will be complemented by a discussion of methods for more rigorous implementation of SINDy when the governing dynamics are entirely unknown as well as using it as a tool to motivate theoretical research for modifications to existing models.
