Let f be a C1 function defined over Rn and definable in a given o-minimal structure M expanding the real field. We prove here a gradient-like inequality at infinity in a neighborhood of an asymptotic critical value c. When f is C2 we use this inequality to discuss the trivialization by the gradient flow of f in a neighborhood of a regular asymptotic critical level.

In this paper we consider the system of Hamiltonian differential equations, which determines small oscillations of a dynamical system with n parameters. We demonstrate that this system determines an affinor structure J on the phase space TRⁿ. If J² = ωI, where ω = ±1,0, the phase space can be considered as the biplanar space of elliptic, hyperbolic or parabolic type. In the Euclidean case (Rⁿ = Eⁿ) we obtain the Hopf bundle and its analogs. The bases of these bundles are, respectively, the projective...

Some simple examples from quantum physics and control theory are used to illustrate the application of the theory of Lie systems. We will show, in particular, that for certain physical models both of the corresponding classical and quantum problems can be treated in a similar way, may be up to the replacement of the Lie group involved by a central extension of it. The geometric techniques developed for dealing with Lie systems are also used in problems of control theory. Specifically, we will study...

Asymptotic behavior of solutions of an area-preserving crystalline curvature flow equation is investigated. In this equation, the area enclosed by the solution polygon is preserved, while its total interfacial crystalline energy keeps on decreasing. In the case where the initial polygon is essentially admissible and convex, if the maximal existence time is finite, then vanishing edges are essentially admissible edges. This is a contrast to the case where the initial polygon is admissible and convex:...

Nous nous proposons, dans ce travail, d'étudier certaines propriétés géométriques telles que diverses symétries et diverses concavités radiales, directionnelles, etc., pour des équations completement non linéaires (...).

Cascade second order ODEs on manifolds are defined. These objects are locally represented by coupled second order ODEs such that any solution of one of them can represent an external force for the other one. A generic saddle-node bifurcation theorem for 1-parameter families of cascade second order ODEs is proved.

An isotypic Kronecker web is a family of corank m foliations ${\left\{{\mathcal{F}}_{t}\right\}}_{t\in \mathbb{R}{P}^{1}}$ such that the curve of annihilators t ↦ (T x F t)⊥ ∈ Grm(T x* M) is a rational normal curve in the Grassmannian Grm(T x*M) at any point x ∈ M. For m = 1 we get Veronese webs introduced by I. Gelfand and I. Zakharevich [Gelfand I.M., Zakharevich I., Webs, Veronese curves, and bi-Hamiltonian systems, J. Funct. Anal., 1991, 99(1), 150–178]. In the present paper, we consider the problem of local classification of isotypic Kronecker webs...
