Description:
This book covers important topics like stability, hyperbolicity, bifurcation theory and chaos, topics which are essential in order to understand the fascinating behavior of nonlinear discrete dynamical systems. The theory is illuminated by several examples and exercises, many of them taken from population dynamical studies. Solution methods of linear systems as well as solution methods of discrete optimization (control) problems are also included.

The notes describe the methodology called Variational Modelling, and focus on the application to the modelling of gradient-flow systems. I describe the methodology itself in great detail, and explain why this is a rational modelling route.
