Centre manifolds of forced dynamical systems

Abstract
Abstract

Centre manifolds arise in a rational approach to the problem of forming low-dimensional models of dynamical systems with many degrees of freedom. When a dynamical system with a centre manifold is subject to a small forcing, F, there are two effects: to displace the centre manifold; and to alter the evolution thereon. We propose a formal scheme for calculating the centre manifold of such a forced dynamical system. Our formalism permits the calculation of these effects, with errors of order |F|2. We find that the displacement of the manifold allows a reparameterisation of its description, and we describe two “natural” ways in which this can be carried out. We give three examples: an introductory example; a five-mode model of the atmosphere to display the quasi-geostrophic approximation; and the forced Kuramoto-Sivashinsky equation.
