by A. T. Baraviera, R. Leplaideur, A. O. Lopes
Publisher: arXiv 2013
Number of pages: 106
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.

This book is written for anyone with an interest in chaos, fractals, non-linear dynamics, or mathematics in general. It's a moderately heavy piece of work, requiring a bit of mathematical knowledge, but it is definitely not aimed at mathematicians.

These are lecture notes for undergraduate Mathematics and Physics students. They cover a few selected topics from perturbation theory at an introductory level: Bifurcations and Unfolding; Regular Perturbation Theory; Singular Perturbation Theory.

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.

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.
