These notes are in line with a chain of lectures given within the Lefschetz heart for Dynamical structures within the department of utilized arithmetic at Brown college in the course of the educational 12 months 1978-79. the aim of the lectures was once to offer an creation to the functions of centre manifold idea to differential equations. many of the fabric is gifted in an off-the-cuff type, by way of labored examples within the wish that this clarifies using centre manifold idea. the most program of centre manifold thought given in those notes is to dynamic bifurcation thought. Dynamic bifurcation conception is worried with topological adjustments within the nature of the strategies of differential equations as para meters are diversified. Such an instance is the construction of periodic orbits from an equilibrium aspect as a parameter crosses a serious worth. In definite situations, the appliance of centre manifold conception reduces the measurement of the procedure below research. during this recognize the centre manifold thought performs an identical function for dynamic difficulties because the Liapunov-Schmitt strategy performs for the research of static suggestions. Our use of centre manifold concept in bifurcation difficulties follows that of Ruelle and Takens [57) and of Marsden and McCracken [51).
