О гомоклинических аттракторах трехмерных потоков
A distributed medium simulated FHN system describing the dynamics of objects of different nature - physical, chemical, biological, social, economic is considered. The analytical proof of the existence of solutions in the form of a travelling pulses of a complex profile. Such solutions can be used to describe a wide range of phenomena - from distribution of information, formation of shocks (such as vibration in the Earth's crust or the prices of financial assets, etc.) to the dynamics of socio-economic processes.
The main goal of the present paper is an explanation of topical issues of the theory of spiral chaos of three-dimensional flows, i.e. the theory of strange attractors associated with the existence of homoclinic loops to the equilibrium of saddle-focus type, based on the combination of its two fundamental principles, Shilnikov’s theory and universal scenarios of spiral chaos, i.e. those elements of the theory that remain valid for any models, regardless of their origin. The mathematical foundations of this theory were laid in the 60th in the famous works of L.P. Shilnikov, and on this subject to date, a lot of important and interesting results have been accumulated. However, these results, for the most part, were related to applications, and, perhaps for this reason, the theory of spiral chaos lacked internal unity – until recently it seemed to consist of separate parts. As it seems for us, the main results of our review allow to fill this gap. So, in the paper we present a fairly complete and illustrative proof of the famous theorem of Shilnikov (1965), describe the main elements of the phenomenological theory of universal scenarios for the emergence of spiral chaos, and also, from a unified point of view, consider a number of three-dimensional models which demonstrate this chaos. They are both the classical models (the systems of Rossler and Arneodo–Coullet–Tresser) and several models known from applications. We discuss advantages of such a new approach to the study of problems of dynamical chaos (including the spiral one), and our recent works devoted to the study of chaotic dynamics of multidimensional flows (with dimension N > 3) and three-dimensional maps show that it is also quite effective. In particular, the next, third, part of the review will be devoted to these results.
We consider important problems of modern theory of dynamical chaos and its applications. At present, it is customary to assume that in the finite-dimensional smooth dynamical systems three fundamentally different forms of chaos can be observed. This is the dissipative chaos, whose mathematical image is a strange attractor; the conservative chaos, for which the whole phase space is a large «chaotic sea» with elliptical islands randomly disposed within it; and the mixed dynamics which is characterized by the principle inseparability, in the phase space, of attractors, repellers and orbits with conservative behavior. In the first part of this series of our works, we present some elements of the theory of pseudohyperbolic attractors of multidimensional maps. Such attractors, the same as hyperbolic ones, are genuine strange attractors, however, they allow homoclinic tangencies. We also give a description of phenological scenarios of the appearance of pseudohyperbolic attractors of various types for one parameter families of three-dimensional diffeomorphisms, and, moreover, consider some examples of such attractors in three-dimensional orientable and nonorientable Henon maps. ́ In the second part, we will give a review of the theory of spiral attractors. Such type of strange attractors are very important and are often observed type in dynamical systems. The third part will be dedicated to mixed dynamics – a new type of chaos which is typical, in particulary, for (time) reversible systems i.e. systems which are invariant with respect to some changes of coordinates and time reversing. It is well known that such systems occur in many problems of mechanics, electrodynamics, and other areas of natural sciences.
A model for organizing cargo transportation between two node stations connected by a railway line which contains a certain number of intermediate stations is considered. The movement of cargo is in one direction. Such a situation may occur, for example, if one of the node stations is located in a region which produce raw material for manufacturing industry located in another region, and there is another node station. The organization of freight traﬃc is performed by means of a number of technologies. These technologies determine the rules for taking on cargo at the initial node station, the rules of interaction between neighboring stations, as well as the rule of distribution of cargo to the ﬁnal node stations. The process of cargo transportation is followed by the set rule of control. For such a model, one must determine possible modes of cargo transportation and describe their properties. This model is described by a ﬁnite-dimensional system of diﬀerential equations with nonlocal linear restrictions. The class of the solution satisfying nonlocal linear restrictions is extremely narrow. It results in the need for the “correct” extension of solutions of a system of diﬀerential equations to a class of quasi-solutions having the distinctive feature of gaps in a countable number of points. It was possible numerically using the Runge–Kutta method of the fourth order to build these quasi-solutions and determine their rate of growth. Let us note that in the technical plan the main complexity consisted in obtaining quasi-solutions satisfying the nonlocal linear restrictions. Furthermore, we investigated the dependence of quasi-solutions and, in particular, sizes of gaps (jumps) of solutions on a number of parameters of the model characterizing a rule of control, technologies for transportation of cargo and intensity of giving of cargo on a node station.
Let k be a field of characteristic zero, let G be a connected reductive algebraic group over k and let g be its Lie algebra. Let k(G), respectively, k(g), be the field of k- rational functions on G, respectively, g. The conjugation action of G on itself induces the adjoint action of G on g. We investigate the question whether or not the field extensions k(G)/k(G)^G and k(g)/k(g)^G are purely transcendental. We show that the answer is the same for k(G)/k(G)^G and k(g)/k(g)^G, and reduce the problem to the case where G is simple. For simple groups we show that the answer is positive if G is split of type A_n or C_n, and negative for groups of other types, except possibly G_2. A key ingredient in the proof of the negative result is a recent formula for the unramified Brauer group of a homogeneous space with connected stabilizers. As a byproduct of our investigation we give an affirmative answer to a question of Grothendieck about the existence of a rational section of the categorical quotient morphism for the conjugating action of G on itself.
Let G be a connected semisimple algebraic group over an algebraically closed field k. In 1965 Steinberg proved that if G is simply connected, then in G there exists a closed irreducible cross-section of the set of closures of regular conjugacy classes. We prove that in arbitrary G such a cross-section exists if and only if the universal covering isogeny Ĝ → G is bijective; this answers Grothendieck's question cited in the epigraph. In particular, for char k = 0, the converse to Steinberg's theorem holds. The existence of a cross-section in G implies, at least for char k = 0, that the algebra k[G]G of class functions on G is generated by rk G elements. We describe, for arbitrary G, a minimal generating set of k[G]G and that of the representation ring of G and answer two Grothendieck's questions on constructing generating sets of k[G]G. We prove the existence of a rational (i.e., local) section of the quotient morphism for arbitrary G and the existence of a rational cross-section in G (for char k = 0, this has been proved earlier); this answers the other question cited in the epigraph. We also prove that the existence of a rational section is equivalent to the existence of a rational W-equivariant map T- - - >G/T where T is a maximal torus of G and W the Weyl group.
