What field of Maths knowledge should I learn first i.e. by reading what books or articles can I understand the following snippet of a Maths article: For a general, nonlinear dynamic system with parameters $\boldsymbol c$, running from time $0$ to time $T$ $\boldsymbol z\left(t+1\right)\boldsymbol=\boldsymbol s\left(\boldsymbol z\left(t\right),\boldsymbol u\left(t\right),\boldsymbol c\right)$ $\left(8\right)$ one may linearize a solution trajectory using the Jacobian of $\boldsymbol s$, $S$: $\boldsymbol x\left(t+1\right)\boldsymbol=\boldsymbol S\left(t\right)\boldsymbol x\left(t\right)+\boldsymbol k\left(t\right)$ $\left(9\right)$ The derivative of $\boldsymbol z\left(T\right)$ with respect to $z\left(0\right)$ are implicit in: $\boldsymbol x\left(T\right)=\boldsymbol S\left(T-1\right)\boldsymbol S\left(T-2\right)\cdots\boldsymbol S\left(0\right)\boldsymbol x\left(0\right)+\boldsymbol k'\left(t\right)$ $\left(10\right)$ and a similar formula may be derived (summing over $t$) for derivatives with respect to $\boldsymbol c$. From this, one can easily verify the validity of the following recursion formulas to determine the derivatives of a target variable $z_i\left(T\right)$ with respect to all of $z_j\left(0\right)$ (to appear in $x_{j}^{'}\left(0\right)$) and with respect to all the components of $\boldsymbol c$ (to appear in $\boldsymbol w\left(0\right)$): $\boldsymbol x'\left(\boldsymbol T\right)=\boldsymbol e^{i^T}$ $\left(11a\right)$ $\boldsymbol x'\left(t\right)=\boldsymbol x'\left(t+1\right)\boldsymbol S\left(t\right)$ $\left(11b\right)$ $\boldsymbol w\left(T\right)=\mathbf0$ $\left(11c\right)$ $\boldsymbol w\left(t\right)=\boldsymbol w\left(t+1\right)+\boldsymbol x'\left(t\right)s_{c}^{'}\left(t\right)$ $\left(11d\right)$ where $s_{c}^{'}$ refers to the matrix of derivatives of $s_i$ with respect to $c_k$.

I would recommend one of: 1. Nonlinear dynamics and chaos - Strogatz 2. Differential equations, dynamical systems, and an introduction to chaos - Hirsh, Smale, and Devaney 3. Dynamical Systems - Robinson (be sure to get the version on continuous dynamical systems. He has another book which starts with discrete dynamics and is much more advanced.) I would strongly recommend avoiding Boyce/Diprima or any similar texts. July 12th, 2018, 07:37 PM   #3

That book made me detest differential equations.
