"Towards a Mathematical Theory of Climate Sensitivity"

In this talk I will outline the key concepts, proposed methods and
preliminary results of a joint research program. The main objective
of this program is to understand and explain, at a fundamental
level, the causes and manifestations of climate sensitivity. Our
program weaves together recent results from the ergodic theory of
dynamical systems, stochastic processes, and the linear response
theory of nonequilibrium dynamical systems. The program’s
cornerstone is the theory of random dynamical systems (RDS), which
allows us to probe the detailed geometric structure of the random
attractors associated with nonlinear, stochastically perturbed
systems. These attractors extend the concept of strange attractors
from autonomous dynamical systems to deterministically nonautonomous
and to stochastic systems.
