GSD (Dynamical systems)

Dynamical systems is, and always has been, one of the main lines of research in Mathematics. It lies in the interest of all human civilizations to understand important questions such as the movement of the planets, the evolution of populations, or the discovery of chaotic dynamics in robust deterministic systems, which is why dynamical systems has become a major goal of study. After many years of evolution, the area of dynamical systems has undergone various transformations and developed branches to provide answers to questions of diverse nature.

The interests of the Dynamical Systems Group of UAB (GSD-UAB) can be described by stating our main research lines: Celestial Mechanics, Complex Dynamics, Discrete Real Dynamical Systems and Qualitative Theory of Differential Equations.

The members of our group work mainly in Catalonian universities (UAB, UB, UdG, UPC, URV, UVIC), although some of our researchers work in other universities in Spain and abroad. GSD-UAB collaborates with various national and international research groups.

Limit cycles bifurcating of Kolmogorov systems in R2 and in R3 / Llibre, Jaume (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Departament de Matemàtiques) ; Martínez Mancilla, Yohanna Paulina (Centre de Recerca Matemàtica) ; Valls, Clàudia 1973- (Universidade de Lisboa. Instituto Superior Técnico. Departamento de Matemática)
In this work we consider the Kolmogorov system of degree 3 in R2 and R3 having an equilibrium point in the positive quadrant and octant, respectively. We provide sufficient conditions in order that the equilibrium point will be a Hopf point for the planar case and a zero-Hopf point for the spatial one. [...]

4-dimensional zero-Hopf bifurcation for polynomial differentials systems with cubic homogeneous nonlinearities via averaging theory / Feddaoui, Amina (University of Annaba. Department of Mathematics (Algeria)) ; Llibre, Jaume (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Departament de Matemàtiques) ; Makhlouf, Ammar (University of Annaba. Department of Mathematics (Algeria))
The averaging theory of second order shows that for polynomial differential systems in ℝ4 with cubic homogeneous nonlinearities at least nine limit cycles can be born in a zero-Hopf bifurcation.

We study the kind of centers that Hamiltonian Kolmogorov cubic polynomial differential systems can exhibit. Moreover, we analyze the possible configurations of these centers with respect to the invariant coordinate axes, and obtain that the real algebraic curve xy(a+bx+cy+dx2+exy+fy2)=h has at most four families of level ovals in R2 for all real parameters a,b,c,d,e,f and h.

Assume that a cubic polynomial differential system in the plane has four invariant straight lines in generic position, i. e. they are not parallel and no more than two straight lines intersect in a point. [...]

We present a new method to compute rational first integrals of planar polynomial vector fields. The algorithm is in general much faster than the usual methods and also allows to compute the remarkable curves associated to the rational first integral of the system.

Dynamics of a competitive Lotka-Volterra systems in R3 / Llibre, Jaume (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Departament de Matemàtiques) ; Martínez, Y. Paulina (Centre de Recerca Matemàtica)
We describe the dynamics of the 3-dimensional competitive Lotka-Volterra systems x˙=x(a−x−y−z), y˙=y(b−x−y−z), z˙=z(c−x−y−z), providing the phase portraits for all the values of the parameters a, b and c with 0 < a< b< c in the positive octant of the Poincaré ball.

Stable components in the parameter plane of transcendental functions of finite type / Fagella Rabionet, Núria (Barcelona Graduate School of Mathematics (BGSMath)) ; Keen, Linda (CUNY Graduate Center (USA))
We study the parameter planes of certain one-dimensional, dynamically-defined slices of holomorphic families of entire and meromorphic transcendental maps of finite type. Our planes are defined by constraining the orbits of all but one of the singular values, and leaving free one asymptotic value. [...]

Using the averaging theory of second order, we study the limit cycles which bifurcate from a zero-Hopf equilibrium point of polynomial vector fields with cubic nonlinearities in ℝn. We prove that there are at least 3n-2 limit cycles bifurcating from such zero-Hopf equilibrium points. [...]

In this note, motivated by the recent results of Wang et al. [Wang et al. , Local bifurcations of critical periods in a generalized 2D LV system, Appl. Math. Comput. 214 (2009) 17-25], we study the behaviour of the period function of the center at the point (1,1) of the planar differential system {u' = up(1−vq),v'= μvq(up−1), where p, q, μ ∈ R with pq > 0 and μ > 0.
