    Henon-like maps with arbitrary stationary combinatorics

    Full text link
    We extend the renormalisation operator introduced in \cite{dCML} from period-doubling H\'enon-like maps to H\'enon-like maps with arbitrary stationary combinatorics. We show the renormalisation picture holds also holds in this case if the maps are taken to be \emph{strongly dissipative}. We study infinitely renormalisable maps FF and show they have an invariant Cantor set O\mathcal{O} on which FF acts like a pp-adic adding machine for some p>1p>1. We then show, as for the period-doubling case in \cite{dCML}, the sequence of renormalisations have a universal form, but the invariant Cantor set O\mathcal{O} is non-rigid. We also show O\mathcal{O} cannot possess a continuous invariant line field.Comment: 62 pages, 5 figure

    The First-Year Gateway Experience: A Groundbreaking Model

    Based on calls for a paradigm shift in higher education, which have appeared in the literature for years (Barr &Tagg, 1995; Tagg, 2003, Bryant University transformed its first-year experience into an innovative model, The First-Year Gateway). Informed by research from The Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching’s Rethinking Undergraduate Business Education, the Association of American Colleges & Universities’ Liberal Education for America’s Promise, and the Wabash National Study, a group identified five learning outcomes: effective communication, critical thinking, ethical reasoning, diversity awareness, and information literacy. Key to this undertaking was faculty development, and utilizing assessment data to improve curricular design and learning outcomes. The result is an interdisciplinary 13 credit first-year program developed to foster a successful transition into Bryant University. Launched in fall 2012, assessment data was gathered to determine whether common learning outcomes were achieved. Faculty embedded student success goals into their courses, which are designed to foster purposeful adjustment to higher education. Preliminary assessment indicates institutional gains in retention, academic standing, and student and faculty engagement during the implementation year. The new model, based on Wenger’s community of practice (COP), created opportunities to discuss pedagogy. Most importantly, the model fostered faculty’s deeper understanding of first-year transitions
