    Fields Institute Communications
    Volume: 41995; 294 pp
    MSC: Primary 58;

    This volume presents new research on normal forms, symmetry, homoclinic cycles, and chaos, from the Workshop on Normal Forms and Homoclinic Chaos held during The Fields Institute Program Year on Dynamical Systems and Bifurcation Theory in November 1992, in Waterloo, Canada. The workshop bridged the local and global analysis of dynamical systems with emphasis on normal forms and the recently discovered homoclinic cycles which may arise in normal forms.

    Specific topics covered in this volume include…

    • normal forms for dissipative, conservative, and reversible vector fields, and for symplectic maps;
    • the effects of symmetry on normal forms;
    • the persistence of homoclinic cycles;
    • symmetry-breaking, both spontaneous and induced;
    • mode interactions;
    • resonances;
    • intermittency;
    • numerical computation of orbits in phase space;
    • applications to flow-induced vibrations and to mechanical and structural systems;
    • general methods for calculation of normal forms;
    • chaotic dynamics arising from normal forms.


    Of the 32 presentations given at this workshop, 14 of them are represented by papers in this volume.
