Loss of Physical Reversibility in Reversible Systems
A dynamical system is said to be reversible if, given an output, the input can always be recovered in a well-posed manner. …

Mathematical Analysis of Fractal Kink-Antikink Collisions in the $\varphi^4$ Model
We analyze the fractal structure seen in kink-antikink collisions of the $\varphi^4$ equation. The analysis is based on qualitative …
