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: Valuations and Hyperbolicity in DynamicsValuations and Hyperbolicity in Dynamics
by - University of East Anglia
These notes describe several situations in dynamics where the notion of valuations on rings provides a simple language in which to describe and exploit hyperbolicity. This approach goes a little beyond simply providing a convenient language.

Book cover: Lectures on Topics In One-Parameter Bifurcation ProblemsLectures on Topics In One-Parameter Bifurcation Problems
by - Tata Institute of Fundamental Research
This set of lectures gives a synthetic exposition for the study of one-parameter bifurcation problems. By this, we mean the analysis of the structure of their set of solutions through the same type of general arguments in various situations.

Book cover: The Hopf Bifurcation and Its ApplicationsThe Hopf Bifurcation and Its Applications
by - Springer
The goal of these notes is to give a reasonably complete, although not exhaustive, discussion of what is commonly referred to as the Hopf bifurcation with applications to specific problems, including stability calculations.
