This figure shows the pro jection on (x, y ) coordinates of: (a) the critical manifold (solid) (b) the critical manifold (solid), and the slow manifold (dotted) (c) the critical manifold (solid), the slow manifold (dotted), and the two enclosing surfaces (dashed).
Rigorous Enclosures of a Slow Manifold
Note that the vertices of all 4 triangulations: the critical manifold, the approximate slow manifold, and the two perturbed manifolds, all have the same (y , z) components.
Rigorous Enclosures of a Slow Manifold
Informally, a computable slow manifold is a manifold close to the critical manifold where the flow is slow.
Rigorous Enclosures of a Slow Manifold
Definition 3.1. A computable slow manifold is a C 1 local ly invariant, normal ly hyperbolic manifold, of the same dimension as the critical manifold, which projects injectively along the fast variable to the critical manifold, such that the its relative slope satisfies s(ε) ≤ 1√ε .
Rigorous Enclosures of a Slow Manifold
However, computable slow manifolds are often the ob jects that are identified in applications: a locally invariant manifold at a fixed value of epsilon that follows the critical manifold closely, and on which the flow is slow [6, 10, 14].
Rigorous Enclosures of a Slow Manifold
A repelling sheet of the slow manifold is plotted in dark blue, an attracting sheet in cyan. A selection of tra jectories in the unstable manifold of the equilibrium near the origin are plotted in red, a strip of unstable manifold that escapes from the fold region is shaded in magenta.
Rigorous Enclosures of a Slow Manifold
In the following, we refer to such a tangential intersection of the equilibrium’s unstable manifold with the repelling slow manifold as a tangency or tangency of invariant manifolds.
Rigorous Enclosures of a Slow Manifold
Note that since slow manifolds are not unique, there is some ambiguity in what it means for a slow manifold to intersect another manifold.
Rigorous Enclosures of a Slow Manifold
The natural setting is therefore to define when a one parameter family of slow manifolds is tangential to another manifold or family of manifolds.
Rigorous Enclosures of a Slow Manifold
To compute normally hyperbolic manifolds of saddle type, see e.g. , one usually first computes the manifold’s stable and unstable manifolds, and then intersects them.
Rigorous Enclosures of a Slow Manifold
Manifolds with vanishing Ricci tensor are called Ricci-flat manifolds while manifolds with a Ricci tensor proportional to the metric are known as Einstein manifolds (see [23, p.
Backreaction and the Covariant Formalism of General Relativity
Vector fields formulation Let (M, g) be an n-dimensional manifold, TpM (cid:39) Rn the tangent space to the manifold at the point p,5 and T M . = {∪p∈MTpM} the tangent space to the manifold.
Backreaction and the Covariant Formalism of General Relativity
For odd dimensional manifolds, and in particular for three-dimensional manifolds, there is no analogue of these theorems.5 For a two-dimensional manifold, i.e. a surface, the Ricci scalar assumes a particularly interesting form.
Backreaction and the Covariant Formalism of General Relativity
These should not be confused with open and closed manifolds. A closed manifold is a compact manifold without boundaries; an open manifold is one that is not compact and without boundary.
Backreaction and the Covariant Formalism of General Relativity
Next, we show that there exists a random invariant manifold M 0 (ω ), which is called a random slow manifold for system (5.3)-(5.4), will be the asymptotic limit of the manifold ˘M ǫ (ω ) as ǫ → 0.
