MATH 850: Differential Equations and Dynamical Systems (3)

Discrete and differentiable dynamical systems with an emphasis on the qualitative theory. Topics to be covered include review of linear systems, existence and uniqueness theorems, flows and discrete dynamical systems, linearization (Hartman-Grobman theorem), stable and unstable manifolds, Poincare sections, normal forms, Hamiltonian systems, and an introduction to bifurcation theory and chaos. Prerequisite: MATH 320 and MATH 766, or permission of instructor. LEC
