On the space of trajectories of a generic gradient like vector field - Zurich Open Repository and Archive


Burghelea, D; Friedlander, L; Kappeler, T (2010). On the space of trajectories of a generic gradient like vector field. Analele. Universităţii de Vest din Timişoara. Seria Matematicǎ-Informaticǎ, 48(1-2):45-126.

Abstract

In this paper the authors explain, in great detail, how to equip the compactified (un)stable sets and trajectory spaces of a gradient-like vector field with the structure of a smooth manifold with corners, in a canonical way. This is done for vector fields which are gradient-like with respect to a proper Morse function, satisfy the Smale transversality condition, and are of standard form, ∑i≤qxi∂∂xi−∑i>qxi∂∂xi, near the zeros (critical points). As an application, the authors discuss the integration homomorphism relating the de Rham complex and the Thom–Smale complex with coefficients in a representation of the fundamental group.

TrendTerms

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.
