Monodromy

Filed under: mathematics — Tags: — sandokan65 @ 16:10

Large part of my research interests used to be centered around the concept of the monodromy matrix in its many forms and names:

  • The Fundamental Solution Matrix,
  • The Ordered Exponential Matrix,
  • The Floquet Matrix.

It is an integral matrix characterization of the periodic dynamical systems. John Baez gives nice layman explanation what it is. Related concepts are the Monodromy Group and the Monodromy Principle.
