Un algorithme est présenté pour calculer en toute généralité le « réseau de Levelt » ${\Lambda}_{L}$ pour un réseau $\Lambda $ donné.

By introducing a feedback control to a proposed Sprott E system, an extremely complex chaotic attractor with only one stable equilibrium is derived. The system evolves into periodic and chaotic behaviors by detailed numerical as well as theoretical analysis. Analysis results show that chaos also can be generated via a period-doubling bifurcation when the system has one and only one stable equilibrium. Based on Lyapunov stability theory, the adaptive control law and the parameter update law are derived...

We show that on a dense open set of analytic one-frequency complex valued cocycles in arbitrary dimension Oseledets filtration is either dominated or trivial. The underlying mechanism is different from that of the Bochi-Viana Theorem for continuous cocycles, which links non-domination with discontinuity of the Lyapunov exponent. Indeed, in our setting the Lyapunov exponents are shown to depend continuously on the cocycle, even if the initial irrational frequency is allowed to vary. On the other...

Asymptotic properties of various semidynamical systems can be examined by means of continuous subadditive processes. To investigate such processes we consider different types of exponents: characteristic, central, singular and global exponents and we study their properties. We derive formulae for central and singular exponents and show that they provide upper bounds for characteristic exponents. The concept of conjugate processes introduced in this paper allows us to find lower bounds for characteristic...

We give a survey of results on global stability for deterministic compartmental epidemiological models. Using Lyapunov techniques we revisit a classical result, and give a simple proof. By the same methods we also give a new result on differential susceptibility and infectivity models with mass action and an arbitrary number of compartments. These models encompass the so-called differential infectivity and staged progression models. In the two cases we prove that if the basic reproduction ratio...

This is a survey of known results on estimating the principal Lyapunov exponent of a timedependent linear differential equation possessing some monotonicity properties. Equations considered are mainly strongly cooperative systems of ordinary differential equations and parabolic partial differential equations of second order. The estimates are given either in terms of the principal (dominant) eigenvalue of some derived time-independent equation or in terms of the parameters of the equation itself....

We develop a difference equations analogue of recent results by F. Gesztesy, K. A. Makarov, and the second author relating the Evans function and Fredholm determinants of operators with semi-separable kernels.

Recently the effect of a quiescent phase (or dormant/resting phase in applications) on the dynamics of a system of differential equations has been investigated, in particular with respect to stability properties of stationary points. It has been shown that there is a general phenomenon of stabilization against oscillations which can be cast in rigorous form. Here we investigate, for homogeneous systems, the effect of a quiescent phase, and more generally, a phase with slower dynamics. We show that...

This paper deals with the following question: does the asymptotic stability of the positive equilibrium of the Holling-Tanner model imply it is also globally stable? We will show that the answer to this question is negative. The main tool we use is the computation of Poincaré-Lyapunov constants in case a weak focus occurs. In this way we are able to construct an example with two limit cycles.

We study the connection between the entropy of a dynamical system and the boundary distortion rate of regions in the phase space of the system.

The aim of this paper is twofold. On the one hand, we want to discuss some methodological issues related to the notion of strange nonchaotic attractor. On the other hand, we want to formulate a precise definition of this kind of attractor, which is "observable" in the physical sense and, in the two-dimensional setting, includes the well known models proposed by Grebogi et al. and by Keller, and a wide range of other examples proposed in the literature. Furthermore, we analytically prove that a whole...
