Aims |
Introduction to the basic problems of dynamical systems and mathematical modeling |
Content |
Introduction (basic terminology, examples, computers and dynamical systems)
Unit I: Discrete and continuous dynamical systems (recurrences and ordinary differential equations as dynamical systems, first order equations, higher order differential equations, existence theorems, general linear ordinary differential equations, boundary value problems) Unit II: Qualitative Analysis (limit sets, singular points, stability theory, invariant sets, Poincaré maps, bifurcation theory) Unit III: Numerical Approach (approximate solutions, numerical stability, continuation, calculation of the bifurcation behavior, chaos) |
