**Abstract:**

Multisoliton solutions of the KdV equation satisfy nonlinear ordinary differential equations which are known as stationary equations for the KdV hierarchy, or sometimes as Lax-Novikov equations. An interesting feature of these equations, known since the 1970's, is that they can be explicitly integrated, by virtue of being finite-dimensional completely integrable Hamiltonian systems. Here we use the integration theory to investigate the question of whether the multisoliton solutions are the only nonsingular solutions of these ordinary differential equations which vanish at infinity. In particular we prove that this is indeed the case for

**Abstract:**

The KdV-KdV system of Boussinesq equations belongs to the class of Boussinesq equations modeling two-way propagation of small-amplitude long waves on the surface of an ideal fluid. It has been numerically shown that this system possesses solutions with two humps which tend to a periodic solution with much smaller amplitude at infinity (called generalized two-hump wave solutions). This paper presents the first rigorous proof. The traveling form of this system can be formulated into a dynamical system with dimension 4. The classical dynamical system approach provides the existence of a solution with an exponentially decaying part and an oscillatory part (small-amplitude periodic solution) at positive infinity, which has a single hump at the origin and is reversible near negative infinity if some free constants, such as the amplitude and the phase shit of the periodic solution, are activated. This eventually yields a generalized two-hump wave solution. The method here can be applied to obtain generalized $2^k$-hump wave solutions for any positive integer $k$.

**Abstract:**

A system of stochastic retarded reaction-diffusion equations with multiplicative noise and deterministic non-autonomous forcing on thin domains is considered. Relations between the asymptotic behavior for the stochastic retarded equations defined on thin domains in ${\mathbb R}^{n+1}$ and an equation on a domain in ${\mathbb R}^{n}$ are investigated. We first show the existence and uniqueness of tempered random attractors for these equations. Then, we analyze convergence properties of the solutions as well as the attractors.

**Abstract:**

We study the qualitative behavior of a system of parabolic conservation laws, derived from a Keller-Segel type chemotaxis model with singular sensitivity, on the unit square or cube subject to various types of boundary conditions. It is shown that for given initial data in $H^3(\Omega)$, under the assumption that only the entropic energy associated with the initial data is small, there exist global-in-time classical solutions to the initial-boundary value problems of the model subject to the Neumann-Stress-free and Dirichlet-Stress-free type boundary conditions; these solutions converge to equilibrium states, determined from initial and/or boundary data, exponentially rapidly as time goes to infinity. In addition, it is shown that the solutions of the fully dissipative model converge to those of the corresponding partially dissipative model as the chemical diffusion rate tends to zero under the Neumann-Stress-free type boundary conditions. Numerical analysis is performed for a discretization of the model with the Dirichlet-Stress-free type boundary conditions, and a monotonic exponential decay to the equilibrium solution (analogous to the continuous case) is proven. Numerical simulations are supplemented to illustrate the exponential decay, test the assumptions of the exponential decay theorem, and to predict boundary layer formation under the Dirichlet-Stress-free type boundary conditions.

**Abstract:**

In this paper we consider a viscoelastic modified nonlinear Von-Kármán system with a linear delay term. The well posedness of solutions is proved using the Faedo-Galerkin method. We use minimal and general conditions on the relaxation function and establish a general decay results, from which the usual exponential and polynomial decay rates are only special cases.

**Abstract:**

In this paper we establish an almost optimal well-posedness and regularity theory for the Klein-Gordon-Schrödinger system on the half line. In particular we prove local-in-time well-posedness for rough initial data in Sobolev spaces of negative indices. Our results are consistent with the sharp well-posedness results that exist in the full line case and in this sense appear to be sharp. Finally we prove a global well-posedness result by combining the

In the present paper, we study the corresponding bifurcations. Specifically, we show that similar to the original KM with all-to-all coupling, the onset of synchronization in the KM on graphs is realized via a pitchfork bifurcation. The formula for the stable branch of the bifurcating equilibria involves the principal eigenvalue and the corresponding eigenfunctions of the kernel operator defined by the limit of the graph sequence used in the model. This establishes an explicit link between the network structure and the onset of synchronization in the KM on graphs. The results of this work are illustrated with the bifurcation analysis of the KM on Erdős-Rényi, small-world, as well as certain weighted graphs on a circle.

**Abstract:**

Feng and Huang in 2016 defined a new notion called weighted topological entropy (pressure) and obtained the corresponding variational principle for compact dynamical systems. In this paper, it was our hope to carry out a further study from the following three aspects:

(1) Inspired from the well-known classical entropy theory, we define various weighted topological (measure-theoretic) entropies and investigate their relationships.

(2) The classical entropy formula of subsets and their transformations by factor maps is generalized to the weighted version.

(3) A formula which comes from the Brin-Katok theorem of weighted conditional entropy is established.

Finally, our results combine with those of a very recent paper by the authors to give cohomology results for discrete parabolic actions in regular representations of some general classes of simple Lie groups, providing a fundamental step toward proving differential local rigidity of parabolic actions in this general setting.

**Abstract:**

We consider several nonlocal models for traffic flow, including both microscopic ODE models and macroscopic PDE models. The ODE models describe the movement of individual cars, where each driver adjusts the speed according to the road condition over an interval in the front of the car. These models are known as the FtLs (Follow-the-Leaders) models. The corresponding PDE models, describing the evolution for the density of cars, are conservation laws with nonlocal flux functions. For both types of models, we study stationary traveling wave profiles and stationary discrete traveling wave profiles. (See definitions 1.1 and 1.2, respectively.) We derive delay differential equations satisfied by the profiles for the FtLs models, and delay integro-differential equations for the traveling waves of the nonlocal PDE models. The existence and uniqueness (up to horizontal shifts) of the stationary traveling wave profiles are established. Furthermore, we show that the traveling wave profiles are time asymptotic limits for the corresponding Cauchy problems, under mild assumptions on the smooth initial condition.

**Abstract:**

We show that a dynamical system with gluing orbit property is either minimal or of positive topological entropy. Moreover, for equicontinuous systems, we show that topological transitivity, minimality and orbit gluing property are equivalent. These facts reflect the similarity and dissimilarity of gluing orbit property with specification like properties.

**Abstract:**

The notion of *asymptotically sectional-hyperbolic set* was recently introduced. The main feature is that any point outside of the stable manifolds of its singularities has arbitrarily large hyperbolic times. In this paper we prove the existence, on any three-dimensional Riemannian manifold, of attractors with Rovella-like singularities satisfying this kind of hyperbolicity. Furthermore, we prove that asymptotically sectional-hyperbolic Lyapunov-stable sets, under certain conditions, have positive topological entropy.

which depends on a positive parameter *β* > 0. Here, *h* is a sign-changing function with *h* = 0 and where the nonlinear term of the equation has two singularities. For the first time, the degenerate case is studied, displaying an unexpected feature which contrasts with the results known in the literature for indefinite singular equations.

**Abstract:**

The classic Thue–Morse measure is a paradigmatic example of a purely singular continuous probability measure on the unit interval. Since it has a representation as an infinite Riesz product, many aspects of this measure have been studied in the past, including various scaling properties and a partly heuristic multifractal analysis. Some of the difficulties emerge from the appearance of an unbounded potential in the thermodynamic formalism. It is the purpose of this article to review and prove some of the observations that were previously established via numerical or scaling arguments.

In this paper, we consider multiplicity of brake orbits on compact symmetric dynamically convex reversible hypersurfaces in $\mathbb{R}^{2n}$. We prove that there exist at least \([\frac{n+1}{2}]\) geometrically distinct closed characteristics on dynamically convex hypersurface $\Sigma$ in $R^{2n}$ with the symmetric and reversible conditions, *i.e*. $\Sigma = -\Sigma$ and $N\Sigma = \Sigma$, where $N = diag(-I_{n}, I_{n})$. For $n\geq2$, we prove that there are at least 2 symmetric brake orbits on $\Sigma$, which generalizes Kang's result in [

In this paper, we show that, under some technical assumptions, the Kolmogorov-Sinai entropy and the permutation entropy are equal for one-dimensional maps if there exists a countable partition of the domain of definition into intervals such that the considered map is monotone on each of those intervals. This is a generalization of a result by Bandt, Pompe and G. Keller, who showed that the above holds true under the additional assumptions that the number of intervals on which the map is monotone is finite and that the map is continuous on each of those intervals.

In this paper, we establish a KAM-theorem about the existenceof invariant tori in non-conservative dynamical systems with finitely differentiable vector fields and multiple degeneracies under the assumption that theintegrable part is finitely differentiable with respect to parameters, instead ofthe usual assumption of analyticity. We prove these results by constructingapproximation and inverse approximation lemmas in which all functions arefinitely differentiable in parameters.

We develop a general energy method for proving the optimal time decay rates of the higher-order spatial derivatives of solutions to the Boltzmann-type and Landau-type systems in the whole space, for both hard potentials and soft potentials. With the help of this method, we establish the global existence and temporal convergence rates of solution near a given global Maxwellian to the Cauchy problem on the Boltzmann equation with frictional force for very soft potentials i.e.
