Abstract

In the first part of this talk I will briefly describe previous work on quadruped gaits (which distinguishing gaits by their spatio-temporal symmetries). In the second part, I will discuss how the application to gaits has led to results about phase-shift synchrony in periodic solutions of coupled systems of differential equations. This work is joint with David Romano, Yunjiao Wang, and Ian Stewart.
