    A fun fact about the Euler characteristic

    There are many equivalent definitions of the Euler characteristic $\chi(Y)$ of a space $Y$. I recently learned another of these, valid in the case that $Y$ is a compact, orientable, smooth manifold.

    Rigorous Enclosures of a Slow Manifold

    Slow-fast dynamical systems have two time scales and an explicit parameter representing the ratio of these time scales. Locally invariant slow manifolds along which motion occurs on the slow time scale are a prominent feature of slow-fast systems. This paper introduces a rigorous numerical method to compute enclosures of the slow manifold of a slow-fast system with one fast and two slow variables.
