Conley index and homology index braids in singular perturbation problems without uniqueness of solutions

Maria C. Carbinatto, Krzysztof P. Rybakowski


We define the concept of a Conley index and a homology index braid class for
ordinary differential equations of the form
\dot x= F_1(x),
where $\mathcal{M}$ is a $C^2$-manifold and $F_1$ is the principal part of
a < i> continuous vector field< /i> on $\mathcal{M}$.
This allows us to extend our previously obtained results
from [M.C. Carbinatto and K.P. Rybakowski, < i> On the suspension isomorphism for index braids in a
singular perturbation problem< /i> , Topological Methods in Nonl. Analysis < b> 32< /b> (2008), 199-225] on singularly perturbed systems
of ordinary differential equations
\varepsilon\dot y&=f(y,x,\varepsilon),\\
\dot x&=h(y,x,\varepsilon)
on $Y\times \mathcal{M}$, where $Y$ is a finite dimensional Banach space
and $\mathcal{M}$ is a $C^2$-manifold, to the case where the vector field
in $(E_\varepsilon)$ is continuous, but not necessarily locally Lipschitzian.
