Dynamics

Dynamics (from Greek δυναμικός  dynamikos "powerful", from δύναμις  dynamis "power") may refer to:
Contents
Physics and engineering
 Dynamics (mechanics), the time evolution of physical processes
 Aerodynamics, the study of gases in motion
 Analytical dynamics refers to the motion of bodies as induced by external forces
 Anomalous dynamics is the stochastic motion of objects with mean square displacement (MSD) that deviates from the relation for normal dynamics, MSD~t, where t is the time the process is seen; Anomalous dynamics are either faster than normal dynamics (MSD>t) or slower (MSD<t).
 Brownian dynamics, is the occurrence of Langevin dynamics in the motion of particles in solution (e.g. a grain in water, as was first seen by Brown); its famous property is, MSD~t, where MSD is the mean square displacement, and t is time the process is seen.
 File dynamics, stochastic motion of particles in a channel
 Flight dynamics, the science of aircraft and spacecraft design
 Fluid dynamics or hydrodynamics, the study of fluid flow
 Computational fluid dynamics, a way of studying fluid dynamics using numerical methods
 Fractional dynamics studyies the dynamics with integrations and differentiations of fractional orders (in physics, economics, and related fields)
 Molecular dynamics, the study of motion on the molecular level
 Normal dynamics, is a stochastic motion having a Gaussian probability density function in position with variance MSD that follows, MSD~t, where MSD is the mean square displacement of the process, and t is time the process is seen. (Normal dynamics and Brownian dynamics are very similar, where the term that is used depends on the field).
 Langevin dynamics, a mathematical model for stochastic dynamics; used in modeling molecules, yet also the stock market, and other things. The most important feature of Langevin dynamics is having a Gaussian random noise.
 Quantum chromodynamics, a theory of the strong interaction (color force)
 Quantum electrodynamics, description of how matter and light interact
 Relativistic dynamics, a combination of relativistic and quantum concepts
 Single file dynamics, also termed, file dynamics, is the diffusion of particles in a channel
 Stellar dynamics, in astrophysics, a description of the collective motion of stars
 System dynamics, the study of the behavior of complex systems
 Thermodynamics, the study of the relationships between heat and mechanical energy
Sociology and psychology
 Group dynamics, the study of social group processes
 Power dynamics, the dynamics of power, used in sociology
 Psychodynamics, the study of the underlying psychological forces driving human behaviour
 Spiral Dynamics, a social development theory
 Social dynamics, the ability of a society to react to changes
Computer science and mathematics
 Dynamic data structure, a data structure where the data elements may change
 Dynamical system, a concept describing a point's time dependency
 Symbolic dynamics, a method to model dynamical systems
 Dynamic programming, a method of solving complex problems by breaking them down into simpler steps
 Dynamic program analysis, a set of methods for analyzing computer software
Companies
 Arrow Dynamics, roller coaster designer
 Boston Dynamics, robot designer
 Crystal Dynamics, video game developer
 General Dynamics, defence contractor
Other
 Dynamics (music), the softness or loudness of a sound or note
 Force Dynamics, a semantic concept about how entities interact with reference to force
 Microsoft Dynamics, a line of business software
 Neural oscillation in the field of neurodynamics, a rhythmic pattern in the brain
 Population dynamics, in life sciences, the changes in the composition of a population
