## Abstract

We show how the methods of homotopy theory can be used in dynamics to study the topology of chain recurrent sets. More precisely, we introduce the new homotopy invariants cat1(X,ξ) and cat1s(X,ξ) for a given finite polyhedron X and a cohomology class ξ∈H1(X;R), which are modifications of the invariants introduced earlier by the first author. We prove that, under certain conditions, cat1s(X,ξ) provides a lower bound for the Lyusternik-Shnirelʹman category of the chain recurrent set Rε of a given flow. The approach of the present paper applies to a wider class of flows than the earlier approach; in particular, it avoids certain difficulties involved in checking the assumptions.

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.

You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
