One of the most principles in organizing the summer time Institute of Cargese on "Bifurcation Phenomena in Mathematical Physics and similar subject matters" used to be to assemble Physicists and Mathematicians engaged on the houses coming up from the non linearity of the phenomena and of the types which are used for his or her description. between those houses the life of bifurcations is without doubt one of the finest, and we had a common survey of the mathematical instruments utilized in this box. This survey used to be performed by means of M. Crandall and P. Rabinowitz and the notes enclosed in those lawsuits have been written through E. Buzano a]ld C. Canuto. one other mathematical method, utilizing Morse conception was once given by way of J. Smoller reporting on a joint paintings with C. Conley. An instance of a right away software was once given by means of M. Ghil. For physicists the speculation of bifurcation is heavily regarding serious phenomena and this used to be defined in a sequence of talks given by way of J.P. Eckmann, G. Baker and M. Fisher. a few comparable principles are available within the speak given through T. T. Wu , on a joint paintings with Barry Mc Coy on quantum box thought. the outline of those phenomena results in using Pade approximants (it is defined for example within the lectures of J. Nuttall) after which to a couple difficulties in drop scorching second difficulties. (cf. the lecture of D. Bessis).

Particle Physics and the Universe: Proceedings of the 9th Adriatic Meeting, Sept. 2003, Dubrovnik

The focal point of the contributions contained during this complaints is the interaction among cosmology, astroparticle physics and particle physics, either from the theoretical and experimental perspective. The Adriatic conferences have typically been one of many only a few physics meetings dedicated to the main complicated prestige of technological know-how whereas aiming at a truly wide participation of either younger and skilled researchers with varied backgrounds in particle physics.

We want to solve the equation ~(x) =b with bElRn given and ~* b on a Assume that 0 n ~-l(b) is ~inite and that the Jacobian matrix ~'(x) is nonsingular at these points. Then we can de~ine o. where I ~'(x) I is the determinant o~ the Jacobian matrix. Properties (i) d(I,O,b)=l o~ the degree. i~ bE 0, d(I,O,b) =0 i~ b¢O; (ii) i~ ~*b in 0 then d(~,O,b) =0; (iii) (Additivity) i~ 0=0 1 u O2 , b¢~(a Ou 01 n0 2 ) then d(~,O,b) =d(~,Ol,b) +d(~,02,b); (iv) (Continuity) d is continuous in ~,O and b.
