Slow-fast systems deal with problems and models in which different (time- or space-) scales play an important role. From a dynamical systems point of view we can think of studying dynamics expressed by differential equations in the presence of curves, surfaces or more general varieties of singularities. Such sets of singularities are said to be critical. Perturbing such equations by adding an $\varepsilon$-small movement that destroys most of the singularities can create complex dynamics. These perturbation problems are also called singular perturbations and can often be presented as differential equations in which the highest order derivatives are multiplied by a parameter $\varepsilon$, reducing the order of the equation when $\varepsilon\to 0$.
