We study speeds of fronts in bistable, spatially inhomogeneous media at parameter regimes where speeds approach zero. We provide a set of conceptual assumptions under which we can prove power-law asymptotics for the speed, with exponent depending a local dimension of the ergodic measure near extremal values. We also show that our conceptual assumptions areâ€¦ (More)

We introduce a notion of shadowing property for actions of finitely generated groups and study its basic properties. We formulate and prove a shadowing lemma for actions of nilpotent groups. We construct an example of a faithful linear action of a solvable Baumslag-Solitar group and show that the shadowing property depends on quantitative characteristics ofâ€¦ (More)

We prove that for any closed manifold of dimension 3 or greater there is an open set of smooth flows that have a hyperbolic set that is not contained in a locally maximal one. Additionally, we show that the stabilization of the shadowing closure of a hyperbolic set is an intrinsic property for premaximality. Lastly, we review some results due to Anosov thatâ€¦ (More)
