Recipes for Continuation provides a comprehensive introduction to the mathematical methodology of parameter continuation, the computational analysis of families of solutions to nonlinear mathematical equations. It develops a systematic formalism for constructing abstract representations of continuation problems and for implementing these in an existing computational platform. The presentation
Recipes for Continuation provides a comprehensive introduction into toolbox and atlas algorihtm development within the development platform COCO. The book contains thousands of lines of explicit code examples. A fully documented version of this code is available for download from an online repository. This includes source code for all toolboxes and atlas algorithms, demo scripts that reproduce example input and output, and figure-generating functions that recreate essential aspects of the corresponding figures in the book. High-resolution .pdf versions of the figures from the book are also available for download.
Follow this link for a series of video tutorials illustrating the installation and use of COCO and COCO toolboxes.
Recipes for Continuation is intended for students and teachers of nonlinear dynamics and engineering, as well as engineers and scientists engaged in modeling and simulation, and is valuable to potential developers of computational tools for analysis of nonlinear dynamical systems. It assumes some familiarity with MATLAB programming and a theoretical sophistication expected of upper-level undergraduate or first-year graduate students in applied mathematics and/or computational science and engineering.
