Variational Modelling: Energies, gradient flows, and large deviations
by Mark A. Peletier
Publisher: arXiv 2014
Number of pages: 64
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.

With a good background in nonlinear dynamics, chaos theory, and applications, the authors give a treatment of the basic principles of nonlinear dynamics in different fields. In addition, they show overlap with the traditional field of control theory.

The monograph presents a generalization of the well-known Lyapunov function method and related concepts to the matrix function case within the framework of systematic stability analysis of dynamical systems (differential equations).

Class notes for an introductory course on dynamical systems and chaos for mathematicians, physicists, and engineers. The text concentrates on models rather than proofs in order to bring out the concepts of dynamics and chaos.
