Methods of A. M. Lyapunov and their Application

The aim of the current version is to acquaint the reader with
new effects bought within the conception of balance of movement, and also
to summarize convinced researches via the writer during this box of
mathematics. it really is recognized that the matter of balance reduces not
only to an research of platforms of standard differential equations
but additionally to an research of platforms of partial differential
equations. the idea is for this reason constructed during this ebook in such
a demeanour as to make it acceptable to the answer of balance problems
in the case of platforms of normal differential equations as
well as in terms of platforms of partial differential equations.
For the reader's profit, we will now record in brief the contents of
the current monograph.
This ebook contains 5 chapters.
In Sections 1-5 of bankruptcy I we supply the central information
connected with the idea that of metric area, and in addition clarify the
meaning of the phrases that allows you to be used less than. Sections 6 and seven are
preparatory and comprise examples of dynamical platforms in various
spaces. In part eight we outline the concept that of dynamical systems
in metric house, and in addition supply the important theorems from the
book [5] of Nemytsky and Stepanov. In Sections 9-10 we give
the primary definitions, hooked up with the idea that of stability
in the experience of Lyapunov of invariant units of a dynamical system,
and additionally examine the homes of yes good invariant sets.
In part eleven we resolve the matter of a qualitative construction
of a local of a good (asymptotically sturdy) invariant set. In
particular, it's validated that for balance within the feel of Lyapunov
of an invariant set M of a dynamical approach f(p, t) it's necessary,
and on the subject of the presence of a small enough compact local of the set M it's also adequate, that there exist no
motions· f(p, t), P eM, having ex-limit issues in M. The results
obtained listed below are new even to the speculation of standard differential
equations. In Sections 12-13 we supply standards for balance and
instability of invariant units by way of sure functionals.
These functionals are the analogue of the Lyapunov functionality and
therefore the tactic built the following will be regarded as a certain
extension of Lyapunov's moment strategy. the entire result of these
sections are neighborhood in personality. We cite, for instance, one in all these.
In order for an invariant set M to be uniformly asymptotically
stable, it is crucial and enough that during a definite neighborhood
S(M, r) of M there exists a sensible V having the following
1. Given a host c1 > zero, it really is attainable to discover c2 > zero such
that V(P) > c2 for p(p, M) > c1.
2. V(p) ~ zero as p(p, M) ~ 0.
3. The functionality V(f(p, t)) doesn't elevate for f(p, t) e S(M, r)
and V(f(p, t)) ~ zero as t ~ + oo uniformly relative to p e S(M, zero for p(p, M) =I= 0.
2. For /'2 > zero it really is attainable to discover /'1 and cx1 such that
V(p) cx1 for p(p, M) > /'2·
3. V and (/) ~ zero as p(p, M) ~ 0.
4. dVfdt = fP(1 + V).
5. V(p) ~ -1 as p(p, q) ~ zero, peA, q E A"-. A, and q eM.
Here, as above, p and q are components of tl;te house R, and p(p, M)
is the metric distance from the purpose p to the set M. part 15 features a procedure that makes it attainable to estimate the distance
from the movement to the investigated invariant set. The theorems
obtained during this part will be regarded as supplementations to
Sections 12-14. Sections 1-15 disguise the contents of the 1st chapter,
devoted to an research of invariant units of dynamical systems.
In the second one bankruptcy we provide a built program of the
ideas and techniques of the 1st bankruptcy to the idea of ordinary
differential equations. In part 1 of bankruptcy 2 we strengthen the
theorem of part 14 for desk bound platforms of differential equations,
and it's proven thereby that the Lyapunov functionality V can
be chosen differentiable to a similar order because the correct members
of the approach. within the similar part we supply a illustration of
this functionality as a curvilinear crucial and clear up the matter of
the analytic constitution of the perfect contributors of the method, which
right participants have a zone of asymptotic balance that's prescribed
beforehand. In part 2 of bankruptcy II we give some thought to the
case of holomorphic correct individuals. The functionality V, the existence
of that is confirmed in part 1 of this bankruptcy, is represented
in this example within the kind of convergent sequence, the analytic continuation
of which makes it attainable to acquire the functionality within the entire
region of asymptotic balance. the tactic of development of such
series can be utilized for an approximate answer of sure non-local
problems including the development of bounded strategies in
the kind of sequence, that converge both for t > zero or for t e (- oo,
+ oo). those sequence are bought from the truth that any bounded
solution is defined by means of capabilities which are analytic with respect
to t in a undeniable strip or part strip, containing the true half-axis.
In part three of bankruptcy II we advance the speculation of equations with
homogeneous correct participants. it really is proven specifically that in
order for the 0 resolution of the procedure to be asymptotically
stable, it is crucial and adequate that there exist homogeneous
functions: one optimistic sure W of order m, and one
negative certain V of order (m + 1 - #). such that dVfdt = W,
where # is the index of homogeneity of the fitting contributors of the
system. If the fitting individuals of the procedure are differentiable, then
these capabilities fulfill a procedure of partial differential equations,
the resolution of that are present in closed shape. This circumstance
makes it attainable to offer an important and adequate for asymptotic balance within the case whilst the best members
are varieties of measure p. , without delay at the coeffilients of those forms.
In Sections four and five of bankruptcy II we ponder a number of doubtful
cases: ok 0 roots and 2k natural imaginary roots. We receive here
many effects at the balance, and in addition at the life of integrals
of the procedure and of the relatives of bounded recommendations. In part 6
of bankruptcy II the speculation built in bankruptcy I is utilized to the
theory of non-stationary structures of equations. In it are formulated
theorems that persist with from the result of part 14, and a method
is additionally proposed for the research of periodic solutions.
In part 1 of bankruptcy III we clear up the matter of the analytic
representation of suggestions of partial differential equations in the
case whilst the stipulations of the concept of S. Kovalevskaya are
not chuffed. The theorems bought listed below are utilized in part 2
of bankruptcy III to platforms of standard differential equations. This
supplements the investigations of Briot and Bouquet, H. Poincare,
Picard, Horn, and others, and makes it attainable to boost in
Section three of bankruptcy III a style of creating sequence, describing
a relations of 0-curves for a approach of equations, the expansions of
the correct individuals of which don't include phrases that are linear
in the features sought. the strategy of development of such series
has made it attainable to offer one other method of the answer of the
problem of balance in terms of structures thought of in Sections 3-5
of bankruptcy II and to formulate theorems of balance, according to the
properties of strategies of yes structures of nonlinear algebraic
equations. therefore, the 3rd bankruptcy represents an test at
solving the matter of balance by using Lyapunov's first
In bankruptcy IV we back reflect on metric areas and households of
transformations in them. In part I of bankruptcy IV we introduce
the idea of a common procedure in metric space.
A basic method is a two-parameter relatives of operators from
R into R, having homes just like these present in suggestions of
the Cauchy challenge and the combined challenge for partial differential
equations. therefore, the overall platforms are an summary version of
these difficulties. We additionally increase right here the idea that of balance of
invariant units of normal platforms. In part 2 of bankruptcy IV,
Lyapunov's moment approach is prolonged to incorporate the answer of difficulties of balance of invariant units of basic structures. The
theorems acquired the following yield invaluable and adequate conditions.
They are in line with the tactic of investigating two-parameter
families of operators through one-parameter households of
functionals. We additionally suggest right here a basic technique for estimating
the distance from the movement to the invariant set. In part three of
Chapter IV are given a number of purposes of the built theory
to the Cauchy challenge for platforms of standard differential equations.
Results are acquired the following that aren't present in the identified literature.
The 5th bankruptcy is dedicated to yes purposes of the developed
theory to the research of the matter of balance of the
zero answer of structures of partial differential equations within the case
of the Cauchy challenge or the combined challenge. In part I of
Chapter V are constructed common theorems, which comprise a style of
solving the soundness challenge and that are orientative in character.
In Sections 2-3 of bankruptcy V are given particular platforms of partial
differential equations, for which standards for asymptotic balance are
found. In part three the research of the soundness of a solution
of the Cauchy challenge for linear structures of equations is carried
out by means of a one-parameter kinfolk of quadratic functionals,
defined in W~N>. balance standards normalized to W~NJ are
obtained right here. besides the fact that, the imbedding theorems make it possible
to isolate these circumstances while the soundness should be normalized in C.
In a similar part are given a number of examples of investigation
of balance in terms of the combined problem.
For a winning knowing of the whole fabric discussed
here, it will be important to have an information of arithmetic equivalent
to the scope of 3 college classes. despite the fact that, in a few places
more really expert wisdom is additionally helpful.
