No Chaos in Dixon's System
The so-called Dixon system is often cited as an example of a two-dimensional (continuous) dynamical system that exhibits chaotic behaviour, if its two parameters take their value in a certain domain. We provide first a rigorous proof that there is no chaos in Dixon's system. Then we perform a complete bifurcation analysis of the system showing that the parameter space can be decomposed into sixteen different regions in each of which the system exhibits qualitatively the same behaviour. In particular, we prove that ...
Identifying critical demand scenarios for the robust capacitated network design problem using principal component analysis
In this paper, we consider the single-commodity robust network design problem. Given an undirected graph with capacity installation costs on its edges and a set S of scenarios with associated flow balance vectors that represent different scenarios of node supplies and demands, the goal is to find integer edge capacities that minimize the total installation cost and permit a feasible single commodity flow for each scenario. This problem arises, for example, in the design of power networks, which are dimensioned to ...
