Dynamical Bifurcation Theory is concerned with the phenomena that occur in one parameter families of dynamical systems (usually ordinary differential equations), when the parameter is a slowly varying function of time. During the last decade these phenomena were observed and studied by many mathematicians, both pure and applied, from eastern and western countries, using classical and nonstandard analysis. It is the purpose of this book to give an account of these developments. The first paper, by C. Lobry, is an introduction: the reader will find here an explanation of the problems and some easy examples; this paper also explains the role of each of the other paper within the volume and their relationship to one another.

About the author (1991)

Eric BENOIT est ne en Lorraine en 1963. Au fil d'un parcours chaotique parfois, d'une vie douce et douloureuse aussi, sa recherche du sens le mene de l'Amour a l'Univers et de l'Univers aux mots. Expression d'une avidite de la Vie autant que de curiosite introspective, l'ecriture est pour lui une respiration, une therapie autant qu'une quete permanente.
