3 Motivation Many quantities in nature fluctuate in time. Examples are the stock market, the weather, seismic waves, sunspots, heartbeats, and plant and animal populations. Until recently it was assumed that such fluctuations are a consequence of random and unpredictable events. With the discovery of chaos, it has come to be understood that some of these cases may be a result of deterministic chaos and hence predictable in the short term and amenable to simple modeling. Many tests have been developed to determine whether a time series is random or chaotic, and if the latter, to quantify the chaos. If chaos is found, it may be possible to improve the short-term predictability and enhance understanding of the governing process.

4 Goals This workshop will provide examples of time-series data from real systems as well as from simple chaotic models. A variety of tests will be described including linear methods such as Fourier analysis and autoregression, and nonlinear methods using state- space reconstruction. The primary methods for nonlinear analysis include calculation of the correlation dimension and largest Lyapunov exponent, as well as principal component analysis and various nonlinear predictors. Methods for detrending, noise reduction, false nearest neighbors, and surrogate data tests will be explained. Participants will use the "Chaos Data Analyzer" program to analyze a variety of typical time- series records and will learn to distinguish chaos from colored noise and to avoid the many common pitfalls that can lead to false conclusions. No previous knowledge or experience is assumed.
