Variational Modelling: Energies, gradient flows, and large deviations
by Mark A. Peletier
Publisher: arXiv 2014
Number of pages: 64
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.

A certain category of infinite strings of letters on a finite alphabet is presented here, chosen among the 'simplest' possible one may build, both because they are very deterministic and because they are built by simple rules.

This book covers important topics like stability, hyperbolicity, bifurcation theory and chaos, topics which are essential to understand the behavior of nonlinear discrete dynamical systems. The theory is illuminated by examples and exercises.

Informal lecture notes intended for graduate students about the standard local theory of holomorphic foliations and vector fields. Though the material presented here is well-known some of the proofs differ slightly from the classical arguments.

This textbook covers a wide range of concepts, notions and phenomena of a truly interdisciplinary subject. Complex system theory deals with dynamical systems containing a very large number of variables, showing a plethora of emergent features.
