Lyapunov maps, simplicial complexes and the Stone functor

  • Joel W. Robbin (a1) and Dietmar A. Salamon (a2)

Let be an attractor network for a dynamical system ft: MM, indexed by the lower sets of a partially ordered set P. Our main theorem asserts the existence of a Lyapunov map ψ:MK(P) which defines the attractor network. This result is used to prove the existence of connection matrices for discrete-time dynamical systems.
