These notes are in line with a sequence of lectures given within the Lefschetz middle for Dynamical platforms within the department of utilized arithmetic at Brown collage throughout the educational yr 1978-79. the aim of the lectures used to be to offer an advent to the functions of centre manifold thought to differential equations. many of the fabric is gifted in an off-the-cuff style, by way of labored examples within the desire that this clarifies using centre manifold thought. the most program of centre manifold idea given in those notes is to dynamic bifurcation thought. Dynamic bifurcation conception is anxious with topological adjustments within the nature of the ideas of differential equations as para meters are various. Such an instance is the production of periodic orbits from an equilibrium aspect as a parameter crosses a severe worth. In convinced conditions, the appliance of centre manifold thought reduces the measurement of the procedure less than research. during this appreciate the centre manifold concept performs an analogous function for dynamic difficulties because the Liapunov-Schmitt method performs for the research of static options. Our use of centre manifold idea in bifurcation difficulties follows that of Ruelle and Takens [57) and of Marsden and McCracken [51).

**Fundamental Groups and Covering Spaces **

The ordinary personality of primary teams and overlaying areas are offered as appropriate for introducing algebraic topology. the 2 issues are taken care of in separate sections. the point of interest is at the use of algebraic invariants in topological difficulties. functions to different parts of arithmetic similar to actual research, advanced variables, and differential geometry also are mentioned.

**Nonabelian Algebraic Topology: Filtered Spaces, Crossed Complexes, Cubical Homotopy Groupoids**

The most topic of this booklet is that using filtered areas instead of simply topological areas permits the improvement of uncomplicated algebraic topology when it comes to better homotopy groupoids; those algebraic buildings larger mirror the geometry of subdivision and composition than these more often than not in use.

**Conference on Algebraic Topology in Honor of Peter Hilton**

This ebook, that's the complaints of a convention held at Memorial collage of Newfoundland, August 1983, includes 18 papers in algebraic topology and homological algebra by way of collaborators and colleagues of Peter Hilton. it really is devoted to Hilton at the celebration of his sixtieth birthday. many of the themes lined are homotopy idea, $H$-spaces, workforce cohomology, localization, classifying areas, and Eckmann-Hilton duality.

By centre manifold theory all bifurcation phenomena take place on a two-dimensional manifold so we can assume m· 2 without loss of generality. We first consider the case when sional parameter and we assume that ~ A(~) is a one-dimencrosses the unit circle. that is ~IA(~) for n 3 3 0 I ; or 4 when ~. o. 4.
