The classical Conley index for flows is defined as a certain homotopy type. In the case of a discrete dynamical system, one usually considers the shift equivalence class of the so-called index map. This equivalence relation is rarely used in other contexts and not well understood in general. Here we propose using a topological invariant of the shift equivalence definition: The homotopy type of the mapping torus of the index map. Using a homotopy type offers new ways for comparing Conley indices… 
Analysis of the Element's Arrangement Structures in Discrete Numerical Sequences
Paper contains the results of the analysis of the laws of functioning of discrete dynamical systems, as mathematical models of which, using the apparatus of geometric images of automatons, are used
The Szymczak Functor on the Category of Finite Sets and Finite Relations
Szymczak functor is a tool used to construct Conley index for dynamical systems with discrete time. We present an algorithmizable classification of isomorphism classes in the Szymczak category over


Dynamical systems, shape theory and the Conley index
Abstract The Conley index of an isolated invariant set is defined only for flows; we construct an analogue called the ‘shape index’ for discrete dynamical systems. It is the shape of the one-point
Leray functor and cohomological Conley index for discrete dynamical systems
We introduce the Leray functor on the category of graded modules equipped with an endomorphism of degree zero and we use this functor to define the cohomological Conley index of an isolated invariant

Shape index and other indices of Conley type for local maps on locally compact Hausdorff spaces
We present a scheme for constructing various Conley indices for locally defined maps. In particular, we extend the shape index of Robbin and Salamon to the case of a locally defined map in a locally
Shift Equivalence and the Conley Index
In this paper we introduce filtration pairs for isolated invariant sets of continuous maps. We prove the existence of filtration pairs and show that, up to shift equivalence, the induced map on the
A Vietoris mapping theorem for homotopy
Let X and Y be compact metric spaces and let a map f: X-* Y be onto. The Vietoris Mapping Theorem as proved by Vietoris [8] states that if for all 0<r<n-1 and all yE Y, Hr(f'(y)) =0 (augmented
A topological persistence theorem for normally hyperbolic manifolds via the Conley index
We prove that the cohomology ring of a normally hyperbolic manifold of a diffeomorphism f persists under perturbation of f . We do not make any quantitative assumptions on the expansion and
Combinatorial-topological framework for the analysis of global dynamics.
We discuss an algorithmic framework based on efficient graph algorithms and algebraic-topological computational tools. The framework is aimed at automatic computation of a database of global dynamics

The Persistent Homology of a Self-Map
The persistence of the eigenspaces is defined, effectively introducing a hierarchical organization of the map in a continuous self-map and the induced endomorphism on homology.
