Abstract

The course will provide an introduction to numerical techniques for the computation of invariant manifolds of large-scale dissipative dynamical systems, and the loci of their bifurcations. Although being aimed at high-dimensional systems these techniques are also useful for low-dimensional problems.

We will start with a brief introduction to the iterative numerical linear algebra methods (mainly those based on Krylov subspaces) required to solve linear systems and eigenvalue problems (GMRES, subspace iteration, Arnoldi methods), followed by a description of Newton-Krylov continuation methods. Then the computation of fixed points, and periodic orbits by single and multiple shooting will be described. The parallelization of the latter and how to achieve almost linear speedups will be considered. The continuation of bifurcations of periodic orbits in systems depending on two parameters will be treated next. Finally, methods to compute two-dimensional invariant tori will be described. Examples of applications to reaction-diffusion and fluid mechanics problems will be shown.
