Evaluation for 1998/99 reports

General remarks : *in all the report, the authors
shoud have explicitely said if the results shown have been generated within
the project or taken out of the litterature. Bibliographic references are
too often missing. *

Sébastien Massart: The
growth
*Very interesting, attractive and complete presentation of the logistic
map. To be read imperatively by the future students. 16*
Francois Dabireau : The
pendulum
*Ver y intersting presentation of the different kind of pendulum.
The link to the interview and the conclusion (frog) are not easy to find.
16*
Mohamed Makan, Frédéric Deghetto : Chaotic
insect population
*Original topic. Special attention need to be given in order to follow
the presentation of the model. But one can see that consistant efforts
have been provided. 14*
Eric Valette : Hydrodynamic
instabilities
*The first part is the redaction of the course part on elementary
bifurcations. This effort will be very usefull for the future students.
The last part is an illustration from the BES on Rayleigh Benard instabilites.
This combination is usefull. 15*
Arnaud Delaunay : Quadratic
application
*Intersting presentation of the logistic application and its connection
to a Rayleigh Benard experiment showing period doubling. The computations
seem to have been done in the framework of the project. Bibliographic references
are missing. 14*
Samia Tabli, Olivier Antibi : Hydrodynamic
instabilities
*Attractive presentation of elementary chaotic dynamical systems
in the first part, and of the Taylor-Couette instability in the second
part. Even though the two parts are rather independant from each other,
the report is well constructed. 15*
Jérémie Sagarra, Alexandre Perchat : Chaotic
attractors in forced oscillators
*This presentation of results on chaotic oscillators, taken out from
existing bibliography, is not easy to read. For instance, the definition
of the Poincare is not presented. 13*
Samir Karaa : Instabilities
with COLSYS
*Interesting exploration of the software COLSYS which solves
ODEs. 15*
Hicham Wahbi: Examples
of instabilites in Fluids
*Sober but intersting overview of instabilites in fluids. 14*
David Guenadou : Course
item
*First attempt to build an hypertext course on dynamical systems
and instabilities. Can be used as a prototype for a more ambitious construction.
13*
Delphine Cayrol : The
clown hat function
*Intersting presentation of the "baker" application. 15*
Said Ghalimi : The
Soda Bottle oscillator
*Original example with rich physics. 14*
