|Title:||Catastrophe theory from a pedestrian's point of view|
|Abstract:|| In this talk I will try to give a brief and intuitive introduction to the basic ideas of catastrophe theory. Describing some simple applications to caustic pattern, catastrophe machine, aggression, and nervous disorder (ANOREXIA NERVOSA), I will try to illustrate the profundity and qualitative power of this theory.
