Bifurcations in Stochastic Systems with Multiple Timescales
17/10/2011 - 19/10/2011

Liste des participants / List of participants
Lecture 1: Deterministic fast-slow systems Examples from neuroscience - conduction-based models; slow manifolds, Fenichel theory; dynamic bifurcations: dynamic saddle-node, pitchfork and Hopf bifurcation; example: canards in the Fitzhugh-Nagumo equations

Lecture 2: One-dimensional slowly time-dependent stochastic systems Dynamics near stable equilibrium branches; dynamic saddle-node bifurcation; dynamic pitchfork bifurcation; example: stochastic resonance

Lecture 3: Multidimensional fast-slow systems with noise Dynamics near stable slow manifolds; dynamic Hopf bifurcation; example: elliptic bursting

Lecture 4: Excitable systems Excitability of type I: SNIC bifurcation, Morris-Lecar model, interspike time statistics; excitability of type II: singular Hopf bifurcation, Fitzhugh-Nagumo model, interspike time statistics

Lecture 5: Mixed-mode oscillations Deterministic models: folded node singularity, canards; stochastic case: effect of noise on mixed-mode patterns; Hodgkin-Huxley model
