Chafee-Infante equation: Consider the nonautonomous Chafee-Infante equation

in one spatial dimension equipped with homogenous Dirichlet boundary condtions. The time-dependent coefficients are asymptotically autonomous

and for an appropriate choice of the sufficiently small parameter δ>0 there exists a 2-dimensional inertial manifold for the above nonlinear heat equation. The following animation illustrates the time-dependence of this inertial manifold for values t=-10...10. More precisely, we plotted the projection of the inertial manifold onto the first Fourier modes:

Inertial manifolds

Henon map: A combination of pseudo-arclength continuation and our truncated Lyapunov-Perron approach can be applied to approximate the unstable manifold of the Henon map

and led to the following animation:

Unstable manifolds

Stable integral manifolds

SIRS epidemic model: The following graphics show stable integral manifolds for a nonautonomous differential equations

with piecewise continuous time-dependence
