Ordinary Differential Equations And Dynamical Systems

Gives a self contained introduction to the field of ordinary differential equations with emphasis on the dynamical systems point of view. Requires some basic knowledge from calculus, complex functions, and linear algebra.

Excerpts from the Abstract:

This book provides an introduction to ordinary differential equations and dynamical systems. We start with some simple examples of explicitly solvable equations. Then we prove the fundamental results concerning the initial value problem: existence, uniqueness, extensibility, dependence on initial conditions. Furthermore we consider linear equations, the Floquet theorem, and the autonomous linear flow.

Then we establish the Frobenius method for linear equations in the complex domain and investigate Sturm-Liouville type boundary value problems including oscillation theory.

Next we introduce the concept of a dynamical system and discuss stability including the stable manifold and the Hartman-Grobman theorem for both continuous and discrete systems.

We prove the Poincare-Bendixson theorem and investigate several examples of planar systems from classical mechanics, ecology, and electrical engineering. Moreover, attractors, Hamiltonian systems, the KAM theorem, and periodic solutions are discussed as well.

Finally, there is an introduction to chaos. Beginning with the basics for iterated interval maps and ending with the Smale-Birkhoff theorem and the Melnikov method for homoclinic orbits.

Prerequisites:

This book only requires some basic knowledge from calculus, complex functions, and linear algebra which should be covered in the usual courses.
