Number of pages: 57

Description:
Nonlinear dynamics ("chaos theory") and quantum mechanics are two of the scientific triumphs of the 20th century. The former lies at the heart of the modern interdisciplinary approach to science, whereas the latter has revolutionized physics. We give a brief review of the origin and fundamentals of both quantum mechanics and nonlinear dynamics.

The notes describe the methodology called Variational Modelling, and focus on the application to the modelling of gradient-flow systems. I describe the methodology itself in great detail, and explain why this is a rational modelling route.

Book cover: Singularities of Transition Processes in Dynamical SystemsSingularities of Transition Processes in Dynamical Systems
by - American Mathematical Society
This monograph presents a systematic analysis of the singularities in the transition processes for dynamical systems. We study general dynamical systems, with dependence on a parameter, and construct relaxation times that depend on three variables.

by - arXiv
We review some basic notions in ergodic theory and thermodynamic formalism, as well as introductory results in the context of max-plus algebra, in order to exhibit some properties of equilibrium measures when temperature goes to zero.
