This ebook comprises lecture notes for a semester-long introductory graduate direction on dynamical platforms and chaos taught by way of the authors at Texas A&M collage and Zhongshan collage, China. There are ten chapters basically physique of the ebook, masking an straightforward thought of chaotic maps in finite-dimensional areas. the subjects contain one-dimensional dynamical platforms (interval maps), bifurcations, basic topological, symbolic dynamical structures, fractals and a category of infinite-dimensional dynamical platforms that are brought about by way of period maps, plus speedy fluctuations of chaotic maps as a brand new perspective constructed through the authors in recent times. appendices also are supplied with a view to ease the transitions for the readership from discrete-time dynamical platforms to continuous-time dynamical structures, ruled by means of traditional and partial differential equations. desk of Contents: basic period Maps and Their Iterations / overall diversifications of Iterates of Maps / Ordering between sessions: The Sharkovski Theorem / Bifurcation Theorems for Maps / Homoclinicity. Lyapunoff Exponents / Symbolic Dynamics, Conjugacy and Shift Invariant units / The Smale Horseshoe / Fractals / fast Fluctuations of Chaotic Maps on RN / Infinite-dimensional platforms prompted by means of Continuous-Time distinction Equations

**The Asymptotic Solution of Linear Differential Systems: Applications of the Levinson Theorem**

The trendy concept of linear differential platforms dates from the Levinson Theorem of 1948. it is just in additional contemporary years, notwithstanding, following the paintings of Harris and Lutz in 1974-7, that the importance and diversity of purposes of the concept became liked. This publication supplies the 1st coherent account of the large advancements of the final 15 years.

Where k ≡ k0 · min{|I1 |, |I2 |} and √ 1+ 5 α ≡ ln 2 > 0. 5, we can also establish the following. Let I be a bounded closed interval and f : I → I be continuous. Assume that I1 , I2 , . . 6 I1 −→ I2 −→ I3 −→ · · · −→ In −→ I1 ∪ Ij , for some j = 1. 13) Then for some K > 0 and α > 0, VI (f n ) ≥ Keαn −→ ∞, as n → ∞. 6 motivates us to give the following definition of chaos, the first one of such definitions in this book. 14) holds. We say that f is chaotic in the sense of exponential growth of total variations of iterates.

Also, 0= d2 ∂ 2f ∂ 2f ∂f ∂ 2f 2 m m G(m(x), x) = [m (x)] + 2 (x) + (x) + = 0. 22). Finally, we analyze stability of points on C near (μ, x) = (μ0 , x0 ). The stability is determined by whether ∂ f (μ, x) is less than 1 or greater than 1. ∂x μ=m(x) x We have ∂ f (μ, x) ∂x μ=m(x) ∂ ∂ 2 f (μ0 , x0 ) (x − x0 ) f (μ0 , x0 ) + ∂x ∂x 2 ∂ 2 f (μ0 , x0 ) + (m(x) − μ0 ) ∂μ∂x 3 1 ∂ f (μ0 , x0 ) + (x − x0 )2 2! ∂x 3 ∂ 3 f (μ0 , x0 ) + (m(x) − μ0 )(x − x0 ) ∂μ∂x 2 1 ∂ 3 f (μ0 , x0 ) (m(x) − μ0 )2 + · · · + 2!

5, we can also establish the following. Let I be a bounded closed interval and f : I → I be continuous. Assume that I1 , I2 , . . 6 I1 −→ I2 −→ I3 −→ · · · −→ In −→ I1 ∪ Ij , for some j = 1. 13) Then for some K > 0 and α > 0, VI (f n ) ≥ Keαn −→ ∞, as n → ∞. 6 motivates us to give the following definition of chaos, the first one of such definitions in this book. 14) holds. We say that f is chaotic in the sense of exponential growth of total variations of iterates. 7 In Chapter 9, such a map f will also be said to have rapid fluctuations of dimension 1.
