A Brouwer-like theorem for orientation reversing homeomorphisms of the sphere

Marc Bonino (2004)

Fundamenta Mathematicae

We provide a topological proof that each orientation reversing homeomorphism of the 2-sphere which has a point of period k ≥ 3 also has a point of period 2. Moreover if such a k-periodic point can be chosen arbitrarily close to an isolated fixed point o then the same is true for the 2-periodic point. We also strengthen this result by proving that if an orientation reversing homeomorphism h of the sphere has no 2-periodic point then the complement of the fixed point set can be covered by invariant...

A fixed point theorem for branched covering maps of the plane

Alexander Blokh, Lex Oversteegen (2009)

Fundamenta Mathematicae

It is known that every homeomorphism of the plane which admits an invariant non-separating continuum has a fixed point in the continuum. In this paper we show that any branched covering map of the plane of degree d, |d| ≤ 2, which has an invariant, non-separating continuum Y, either has a fixed point in Y, or is such that Y contains a minimal (in the sense of inclusion among invariant continua), fully invariant, non-separating subcontinuum X. In the latter case, f has to be of degree -2 and X has...

All solenoids of piecewise smooth maps are period doubling

Lluís Alsedà, Víctor Jiménez López, L’ubomír Snoha (1998)

Fundamenta Mathematicae

We show that piecewise smooth maps with a finite number of pieces of monotonicity and nowhere vanishing Lipschitz continuous derivative can have only period doubling solenoids. The proof is based on the fact that if p 1 < . . . < p n is a periodic orbit of a continuous map f then there is a union set q 1 , . . . , q n - 1 of some periodic orbits of f such that p i < q i < p i + 1 for any i.

An elementary proof of a Lima's theorem for surfaces.

Francisco Javier Turiel Sandín (1989)

Publicacions Matemàtiques

An elementary proof of the following theorem is given:THEOREM. Let M be a compact connected surface without boundary. Consider a C∞ action of Rn on M. Then, if the Euler-Poincaré characteristic of M is non zero there exists a fixed point.

Analytic invariants for the 1 : - 1 resonance

José Pedro Gaivão (2013)

Annales de l’institut Fourier

Associated to analytic Hamiltonian vector fields in 4 having an equilibrium point satisfying a non semisimple 1 : - 1 resonance, we construct two constants that are invariant with respect to local analytic symplectic changes of coordinates. These invariants vanish when the Hamiltonian is integrable. We also prove that one of these invariants does not vanish on an open and dense set.

Applications of Nielsen theory to dynamics

Boju Jiang (1999)

Banach Center Publications

In this talk, we shall look at the application of Nielsen theory to certain questions concerning the "homotopy minimum" or "homotopy stability" of periodic orbits under deformations of the dynamical system. These applications are mainly to the dynamics of surface homeomorphisms, where the geometry and algebra involved are both accessible.

Asymptotic period in dynamical systems in metric spaces

Karol Gryszka (2015)

Colloquium Mathematicae

We introduce the notions of asymptotic period and asymptotically periodic orbits in metric spaces. We study some properties of these notions and their connections with ω-limit sets. We also discuss the notion of growth rate of such orbits and describe its properties in an extreme case.

Attractors with vanishing rotation number

Rafael Ortega, Francisco Ruiz del Portal (2011)

Journal of the European Mathematical Society

Given an orientation-preserving homeomorphism of the plane, a rotation number can be associated with each locally attracting fixed point. Assuming that the homeomorphism is dissipative and the rotation number vanishes we prove the existence of a second fixed point. The main tools in the proof are Carath´eodory prime ends and fixed point index. The result is applicable to some concrete problems in the theory of periodic differential equations.

Bitwisted Burnside-Frobenius theorem and Dehn conjugacy problem

Alexander Fel'shtyn (2009)

Banach Center Publications

It is proved for Abelian groups that the Reidemeister coincidence number of two endomorphisms ϕ and ψ is equal to the number of coincidence points of ϕ̂ and ψ̂ on the unitary dual, if the Reidemeister number is finite. An affirmative answer to the bitwisted Dehn conjugacy problem for almost polycyclic groups is obtained. Finally, we explain why the Reidemeister numbers are always infinite for injective endomorphisms of Baumslag-Solitar groups.

C 1 self-maps on closed manifolds with finitely many periodic points all of them hyperbolic

Jaume Llibre, Víctor F. Sirvent (2016)

Mathematica Bohemica

Let X be a connected closed manifold and f a self-map on X . We say that f is almost quasi-unipotent if every eigenvalue λ of the map f * k (the induced map on the k -th homology group of X ) which is neither a root of unity, nor a zero, satisfies that the sum of the multiplicities of λ as eigenvalue of all the maps f * k with k odd is equal to the sum of the multiplicities of λ as eigenvalue of all the maps f * k with k even. We prove that if f is C 1 having finitely many periodic points all of them hyperbolic,...

Chaos in some planar nonautonomous polynomial differential equation

Klaudiusz Wójcik (2000)

Annales Polonici Mathematici

We show that under some assumptions on the function f the system ż = z ̅ ( f ( z ) e i ϕ t + e i 2 ϕ t ) generates chaotic dynamics for sufficiently small parameter ϕ. We use the topological method based on the Lefschetz fixed point theorem and the Ważewski retract theorem.
