MiS Preprint Repository

We have decided to discontinue the publication of preprints on our preprint server as of 1 March 2024. The publication culture within mathematics has changed so much due to the rise of repositories such as ArXiV ( that we are encouraging all institute members to make their preprints available there. An institute's repository in its previous form is, therefore, unnecessary. The preprints published to date will remain available here, but we will not add any new preprints here.

Local attractor continuation of non-autonomously perturbed systems

Martin Kell


Using Conley theory we show that local attractors remain (past) attractors under small non-autonomous perturbations. In particular, the attractors of the perturbed systems will have positive invariant neighborhoods and converge upper semicontinuously to the original attractor.

The result is split into a finite-dimensional part (locally compact) and an infinite-dimensional part (not necessarily locally compact). The finite-dimensional part will be applicable to bounded random noise, i.e. continuous time random dynamical systems on a locally compact metric space which are uniformly close the unperturbed deterministic system. The “closeness” will be defined via a (simpler version of) convergence coming from singular perturbations theory.
