By Valery N. Pilipchuk

Nonlinear Dynamics represents a large interdisciplinary region of study facing quite a few “unusual” actual phenomena by way of nonlinear differential equations, discrete mappings, and comparable mathematical algorithms. besides the fact that, with out actual alternative for the linear superposition precept, the equipment of Nonlinear Dynamics looked to be very assorted, person and technically complex. This publication attempts to discover a standard flooring for nonlinear dynamic analyses in line with the lifestyles of strongly nonlinear yet very simple opposite numbers to the linear versions and instruments. it's proven that, because the subgroup of rotations, harmonic oscillators, and the traditional advanced research generate linear and weakly nonlinear techniques, then translations and reflections, effect oscillators, and hyperbolic (Clifford’s) algebras needs to supply upward push to a couple “quasi impression” method. Such strongly nonlinear tools are constructed in different chapters of this booklet in keeping with the assumption of non-smooth time substitutions. even if lots of the illustrations are in accordance with mechanical oscillators, the world of functions might comprise additionally electrical, electro-mechanical, electrochemical and different actual types producing strongly anharmonic temporal indications or spatial distributions. attainable functions to periodic elastic constructions with non-smooth or discontinuous features are defined within the ultimate bankruptcy of the booklet.

64) holds for all v, w ∈ Rn . 55). Let us consider such isometries with a ﬁxed point O in Rn , that is symbolically f (O) = O. 65) where a and b are arbitrary scalars. 64), and thus f (v) and f (−v) are antipodal: f (−v) = −f (v). 64), transforms the polarization identity as follows 1 2 2 2 v+w − v − w 2 1 = f (v) − f (−w) 2 − f (v) 2 − f (−w) 2 1 2 2 2 = f (v) + f (w) − f (v) − f (w) 2 = f (v) · f (w) v·w = 2 Therefore, the inner product is preserved. Now, if {ui }is orthogonal basis in Rn , then {f (ui )} is another orthogonal basis.

For n = 1 the functions snθ and csθ give the standard pair of trigonometric functions sin θ and cos θ, respectively. Interestingly enough, the strongly nonlinear limit n → ∞ also gives a quite simple pair of periodic functions. 3) 2 2n 2 where the number 1/2 on the right-hand side corresponds to the initial conditions x (0) = 0 and x˙ (0) = 1.

Remind that from the physical point of view, the functions τ (t) and e (t) describe dynamic states of a particle oscillating between two perfectly rigid 28 1 Introduction Fig. 7 Mechanical model generating the saw-tooth sine and rectangular cosine, τ (t) and τ˙ (t) planes with no energy loss as shown in Fig. 78). 81) where τ = τ (t), e = τ˙ (t), and A and B are arbitrary constants.
