• Biological neuron model
A biological neuron model, also known as a spiking neuron model, is a mathematical model of the electrical properties of neuronal action potentials, which are sharp changes in the electrical potential across the cell membrane that last for about one millisecond.
• Horseshoe map
In the mathematics of chaos theory, a horseshoe map is any member of a class of chaotic maps of the square into itself.
• Catastrophe theory
In mathematics, catastrophe theory is a branch of bifurcation theory in the study of dynamical systems; it is also a particular special case of more general singularity theory in geometry.
• Interplanetary Transport Network
The Interplanetary Transport Network (ITN) is a collection of gravitationally determined pathways through the Solar System that require very little energy for an object to follow.
• Analytical mechanics
In theoretical physics and mathematical physics, analytical mechanics, or theoretical mechanics is a collection of closely related alternative formulations of classical mechanics.
• Metastability
Metastability denotes the phenomenon when a system spends an extended time in a configuration other than the system's state of least energy.
• Dissipation
Dissipation is the result of an irreversible process that takes place in inhomogeneous thermodynamic systems.
• Linear difference equation
In mathematics and in particular dynamical systems, a linear difference equation or linear recurrence relation equates 0 to a polynomial that is linear in the various iterates of a variable—that is, in the values of the elements of a sequence.
• Isochron
In the mathematical theory of dynamical systems, an isochron is a set of initial conditions for the system that all lead to the same long-term behaviour.
• Injection locking
Injection locking and injection pulling are the frequency effects that can occur when a harmonic oscillator is disturbed by a second oscillator operating at a nearby frequency.
• State space
In the theory of discrete dynamical systems, a state space is the set of values which a process can take.
