Applied Dynamical Systems - ME215A Fall 2010 Homework #3 - Due Wednesday October 20, in class 1. (15 pts total) Consider the map x n +1 = μx n (1 - x n ) g ( x n ) . (1) (a) (5 pts) Find the fixed points of this map. Your expressions may depend on μ . (b) (5 pts) Over what ranges of μ are these fixed points asymptotically stable and asymp- totically unstable? (c) (5 pts) Find the periodic orbits with period 2 for this map. 2. (10 pts total) Suppose ˙ x = y (2) ˙ y = - x - y + x 2 + y 2 (3) (a) (5 pts) What restrictions does Bendixson’s criterion place on the existence of periodic orbits for this system? (b) (5 pts) Let

Unformatted text preview: B ( x, y ) = e-2 x . What restrictions does Dulacs criterion (Thm 4.1.2 of the text by Wiggins) place on the existence of periodic orbits for this system? 3. (20 pts total) Suppose x = x (4) y =-y + xy + x 2 (5) (a) (5 pts) What is the stable eigenspace E s and the unstable eigenspace E u for the xed point at the origin? (b) (10 pts) Find the approximation y = h ( x ) for the local unstable manifold W u loc of the origin accurate to O ( x 3 ). (c) (5 pts) What is the stable manifold W s of the origin? 1...
