Description:
A certain category of infinite strings of letters on a finite alphabet is presented here, chosen among the 'simplest' possible one may build, both because they are very deterministic and because they are built by simple rules (a letter is replaced by a word, a sequence is produced by iteration). These substitutive sequences have a surprisingly rich structure.

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: 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: Variational Modelling: Energies, gradient flows, and large deviationsVariational Modelling: Energies, gradient flows, and large deviations
by - arXiv
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.
