Normal stability of slow manifolds in nearly periodic Hamiltonian systems

M. Kruskal showed that each nearly-periodic dynamical system admits a formal U(1) symmetry, generated by the so-called roto-rate. We prove that such systems also admit nearly-invariant manifolds of

Model order reduction methods for geometrically nonlinear structures: a review of nonlinear techniques

This paper aims at reviewing nonlinear methods for model order reduction in structures with geometric nonlinearity, with a special emphasis on the techniques based on invariant manifold theory.

Many non-dissipative reduced plasma models can be derived from more fundamental non-dissipative models by restricting to an approximate invariant manifold. I present a general systematic procedure

Approximation of nearly-periodic symplectic maps via structure-preserving neural networks

. A continuous-time dynamical system with parameter ε is nearly-periodic if all its trajectories are periodic with nowhere-vanishing angular frequency as ε approaches 0. Nearly-periodic maps are

On a large-stepsize integrator for charged-particle dynamics

Xiao and Qin (Comput Phys Commun 265:107981, 2021) recently proposed a remarkably simple modification of the Boris algorithm to compute the guiding centre of the highly oscillatory motion of a

Nearly Periodic Maps and Geometric Integration of Noncanonical Hamiltonian Systems

M. Kruskal showed that each continuous-time nearly periodic dynamical system admits a formal U(1)-symmetry, generated by the so-called roto-rate. When the nearly periodic system is also Hamiltonian,

Geometric Methods for Adjoint Systems

It is shown that the adjoint variational quadratic conservation laws, which are key to adjoint sensitivity analysis, arise from (pre)symplecticity of such adjoint systems, and structure-preserving numerical methods for such systems using Galerkin Hamiltonian variational integrators (Leok and Zhang) are developed.

Hamiltonian reduction of Vlasov–Maxwell to a dark slow manifold

We show that non-relativistic scaling of the collisionless Vlasov–Maxwell system implies the existence of a formal invariant slow manifold in the infinite-dimensional Vlasov–Maxwell phase space.



Initialization and the quasi-geostrophic slow manifold

Atmospheric dynamics span a range of time-scales. The projection of measured data to a slow manifold, ${\cal M}$, removes fast gravity waves from the initial state for numerical simulations of the

Extending the zero-derivative principle for slow–fast dynamical systems

Slow–fast systems often possess slow manifolds, that is invariant or locally invariant sub-manifolds on which the dynamics evolves on the slow time scale. For systems with explicit timescale

Since the late 1950's, the dynamics of a charged particle's ``guiding center" in a strong, inhomogeneous magnetic field have been understood in terms of near-identity coordinate transformations. The

Constraint-Defined Manifolds: a Legacy Code Approach to Low-Dimensional Computation

This paper demonstrates that with the knowledge only of a set of “slow” variables that can be used to parameterize the slow manifold, one can conveniently compute, using a legacy simulator, on a nearby manifold.

On the Nonexistence of a Slow Manifold

Abstract We identify the slow manifold of a primitive-equation system with the set of all solutions that are completely devoid of gravity-wave activity. We construct a five-variable model describing

Variational nonlinear WKB in the Eulerian frame

Nonlinear WKB is a multiscale technique for studying locally-plane-wave solutions of nonlinear partial differential equations (PDE). Its application comprises two steps: (1) replacement of the

Magnetohydrodynamic motion of a two-fluid plasma

The two-fluid Maxwell system couples frictionless electron and ion fluids via Maxwell's equations. When the frequencies of light waves, Langmuir waves, and single-particle cyclotron motion are scaled

Hamiltonian structure of the guiding center plasma model

The guiding center plasma model (also known as kinetic MHD) is a rigorous sub-cyclotron-frequency closure of the Vlasov-Maxwell system. While the model has been known for decades, and it plays a
