Interval translation maps (ITMs) are a non-invertible generalization of interval exchange transformations (IETs). The dynamics of finite type ITMs is similar to IETs, while infinite type ITMs are known to exhibit new interesting effects. In this paper, we prove the finiteness conjecture for the ITMs of three intervals. Namely, the subset of ITMs of finite type contains an open, dense, and full Lebesgue measure subset of the space of ITMs of three intervals. For this, we show that any ITM of three intervals can be reduced either to a rotation or to a double rotation.
For a semigroup $S(t):X\to X$ acting on a metric space $(X,\dist)$, we give a notion of global attractor based only on the minimality with respect to the attraction property. Such an attractor is shown to be invariant whenever $S(t)$ is asymptotically closed. As a byproduct, we generalize earlier results on the existence of global attractors in the classical sense.
We obtain sufficient conditions for the differentiability of solutions to stationary Fokker--Planck--Kolmogorov equations with respect to a parameter. In particular, this gives conditions for the differentiability of stationary distributions of diffusion processes with respect to a parameter.
We consider the 3D Navier--Stokes systems with randomly rapidly oscillating right--hand sides. Under the assumption that the random functions are ergodic and statistically homogeneous in space variables or in time variables we prove that the trajectory attractors of these systems tend to the trajectory attractors of homogenized 3D Navier--Stokes systems whose right--hand sides are the average of the corresponding terms of the original systems. We do not assume that the Cauchy problem for the considered 3D Navier--Stokes systems is uniquely solvable.
Polynomials from the closure of the principal hyperbolic domain of the cubic connectedness locus have some specific properties, which were studied in a recent paper by the authors. The family of (affine conjugacy classes of) all polynomials with these properties is called the Main Cubioid. In this paper, we describe a combinatorial counterpart of the Main Cubioid --- the set of invariant laminations that can be associated to polynomials from the Main Cubioid.
We present an approach to study degenerate ODE with periodic nonlinearities; for resonant higher order nonlinear equations L(p)x=f(x)+b(t), p=d/dt, with 2pi-periodic forcing b and periodic f we give multiplicity results, in particular, conditions of existence of infinite and unbounded sets of 2pi-periodic solutions.
