Bifurcations in Piecewise-smooth Continuous Systems (World Scientific Series on Nonlinear Science Series a)

Real-world structures that contain a few non-smooth swap are usually well-modeled via piecewise-smooth structures. despite the fact that there nonetheless stay many gaps within the mathematical concept of such platforms. This doctoral thesis provides new effects concerning bifurcations of piecewise-smooth, non-stop, self sufficient platforms of standard differential equations and maps.

If m < n, exchanging roles of the bases again leads to a contradiction. Thus m = n and all bases of 9' possess the same number of elements. • The number of basis elements of a finite-dimensional space is, therefore, a characteristic of the space that is invariant under different choices of basis. We formally define the number of basis elements of a (finite-dimensional) space 9' to be in the dimension ofthe space, and write dim 9' for this number. In other words, if dim 9' = n (in which case 9' is called an n-dimensional space), then 9' has n linearly independent elements and each set of n + 1 elements of 9' is necessarily linearly dependent.
