Real-world structures that contain a few non-smooth switch are usually well-modeled via piecewise-smooth structures. in spite of the fact that there nonetheless stay many gaps within the mathematical thought of such platforms. This doctoral thesis provides new effects relating to bifurcations of piecewise-smooth, non-stop, independent platforms of normal differential equations and maps. numerous codimension-two, discontinuity triggered bifurcations are opened up in a rigorous demeanour. a number of of those unfoldings are utilized to a mathematical version of the expansion of Saccharomyces cerevisiae (a universal yeast). the character of resonance close to border-collision bifurcations is defined; specifically, the curious geometry of resonance tongues in piecewise-smooth non-stop maps is defined intimately. Neimark-Sacker-like border-collision bifurcations are either numerically and theoretically investigated. A finished history part is very easily supplied for people with very little event in piecewise-smooth platforms.

This e-book, the 1st printing of which used to be released as quantity 38 of the Encyclopaedia of Mathematical Sciences, provides a latest method of homological algebra, according to the systematic use of the terminology and ideas of derived different types and derived functors.

The booklet offers an invaluable exposition of effects at the constitution of semisimple algebraic teams over an arbitrary algebraically closed box.

This quantity is devoted to the reminiscence of Albert Crumeyrolle, who died on June 17, 1992. In organizing the amount we gave precedence to: articles summarizing Crumeyrolle's personal paintings in differential geometry, common relativity and spinors, articles which provide the reader an concept of the intensity and breadth of Crumeyrolle's study pursuits and impression within the box, articles of excessive clinical caliber which might be of common curiosity.

14). A detailed analysis of lens-chain structures is presented in Chapter 6. 7 Poincar´ e Maps and Discontinuity Maps Let Π be an (N − 1)-dimensional manifold, contained in the phase space of an N -dimensional, ODE system. The Poincar´e map for Π, is a function g : Π → Π, where for any p ∈ Π, g(p) is the next intersection of the trajectory of the ODE system passing through p, if such a point exists. Poincar´e maps are often ill-defined globally [Lee et al. (2008)]. It is usual to study a Poincar´e map locally, say in a neighborhood of a periodic orbit (where g(p) = p) and choose the Poincar´e section, Π, such that intersections are transversal.

2. e. equilibria and periodic orbits, on both sides of the bifurcation. Determination of equilibria is straightforward; this was accomplished in Sec. 3. 21). The computation of periodic orbits, however, is more difficult. 18). For a treatment periodic orbits in piecewise-linear systems with multiple switching manifolds, the reader is referred to [Mitrovski and Kocarev (2001); Gon¸calves (2005)]. The remainder of this chapter is organized as follows.

There are two cases. If det(AL (0)) and det(AR (0)) have the same sign then x∗(L) and x∗(R) are admissible for different signs of µ. 10) has a unique equilibrium. Alternatively if det(AL (0)) and det(AR (0)) have opposite sign, x∗(L) and x∗(R) are admissible for the same sign of µ and collide and annihilate at the origin as µ → 0. The first case is known as persistence, the second is called a nonsmooth fold. 14). 4 T = eT 1 adj(I − AL (µ)) = e1 adj(I − AR (µ)) . 26) The Observer Canonical Form To analyze any local bifurcation from a general point of view it is often a good idea to first obtain a normal form.
