We prove the existence of weak T-periodic solutions for a nonlinear mathematical model associated with suspension bridges. Under further assumptions a regularity result is also given.

We consider dynamical systems on a separable metric space containing at least two points. It is proved that weak topological mixing implies generic chaos, but the converse is false. As an application, some results of Piórek are simply reproved.

A geometric criterion for the existence of chaotic trajectories of a Hamiltonian system with two degrees of freedom and the configuration space a torus is given. As an application, positive topological entropy is established for a double pendulum problem.

We study the mathematical properties of a general model of cell division structured with several internal variables. We begin with a simpler and specific model with two variables, we solve the eigenvalue problem with strong or weak assumptions, and deduce from it the long-time convergence. The main difficulty comes from natural degeneracy of birth terms that we overcome with a regularization technique. We then extend the results to the case with several parameters and recall the link between this...

Unidirectional motion along an annular water channel can be observed in an experiment even with only one camphor disk or boat. Moreover, the collective motion of camphor disks or boats in the water channel exhibits a homogeneous and an inhomogeneous state, depending on the number of disks or boats, which looks like a kind of bifurcation phenomena. In a theoretical research, the unidirectional motion is represented by a traveling wave solution in a model. Hence it suffices to investigate a linearized...

We consider the classical and quantum dynamics of D0 branes within the Yang-Mills approximation. Using a simple ansatz we show that a classical trajectory exhibits a chaotic motion. Chaotic dynamics in N=2 supersymmetric Yang-Mills theory is also discussed.
