Rotation Number as a Complete Topological Invariant of a Simple Isotopic Class of Rough Transformations of a Circle
2018, Vol. 14, no. 4, pp. 543551
Abstract
The problem of the existence of a simple arc connecting two structurally stable systems
on a closed manifold is included in the list of the fifty most important problems of dynamical
systems. This problem was solved by S. Newhouse and M. Peixoto for Morse – Smale flows on an
arbitrary closed manifold in 1980. As follows from the works of Sh. Matsumoto, P. Blanchard,
V. Grines, E.Nozdrinova, and O.Pochinka, for the Morse – Smale cascades, obstructions to the
existence of such an arc exist on closed manifolds of any dimension. In these works, necessary
and sufficient conditions for belonging to the same simple isotopic class for gradientlike diffeomorphisms
on a surface or a threedimensional sphere were found. This article is the next step
in this direction. Namely, the author has established that all orientationreversing diffeomorphisms
of a circle are in one component of a simple connection, whereas the simple isotopy class
of an orientationpreserving transformation of a circle is completely determined by the Poincar´e
rotation number.

OneDimensional ReactionDiffusion Equations and Simple SourceSink Arcs on a Circle
2018, Vol. 14, no. 3, pp. 325330
Abstract
This article presents a number of models that arise in physics, biology, chemistry, etc.,
described by a onedimensional reactiondiffusion equation. The local dynamics of such models
for various values of the parameters is described by a rough transformation of the circle. Accordingly,
the control of such dynamics reduces to the consideration of a continuous family of
maps of the circle. In this connection, the question of the possibility of joining two maps of the
circle by an arc without bifurcation points naturally arises. In this paper it is shown that any
orientationpreserving sourcesink diffeomorphism on a circle is joined by such an arc. Note that
such a result is not true for multidimensional spheres.
