Infinitely many Hamilton–Poisson realizations of the five-dimensional real valued Maxwell–Bloch equations with the rotating wave approximation are constructed and the energy-Casimir mapping is considered. Also, the image of this mapping is presented and connections with the equilibrium states of the considered system are studied. Using some fibers of the image of the energy-Casimir mapping, some special orbits are obtained. Finally, a Lax formulation of the system is given.
Keywords: Maxwell–Bloch equations, Hamiltonian dynamics, energy-Casimir mapping, homoclinic orbits, periodic orbits, elliptic functions

Separators are fundamental plasma physics objects that play an important role in many astrophysical phenomena. Looking for separators and their number is one of the first steps in studying the topology of the magnetic field in the solar corona. In the language of dynamical systems, separators are noncompact heteroclinic curves. In this paper we give an exact lower estimation of the number of noncompact heteroclinic curves for a 3-diffeomorphism with the so-called “surface dynamics”. Also, we prove that ambient manifolds for such diffeomorphisms are mapping tori.
Keywords: separator in a magnetic field, heteroclinic curves, mapping torus, gradient-like diffeomorphisms

Polekhin I. Y.
We consider the system of a rigid body in a weak gravitational field on the zero level set of the area integral and study its Poincaré sets in integrable and nonintegrable cases. For the integrable cases of Kovalevskaya and Goryachev–Chaplygin we investigate the structure of the Poincaré sets analytically and for nonintegrable cases we study these sets by means of symbolic calculations. Based on these results, we also prove the existence of periodic solutions in the perturbed nonintegrable system. The Chaplygin integrable case of Kirchhoff’s equations is also briefly considered, for which it is shown that its Poincaré sets are similar to the ones of the Kovalevskaya case.

We consider in detail similarities and differences of the “coherence–incoherence” transition in ensembles of nonlocally coupled chaotic discrete-time systems with nonhyperbolic and hyperbolic attractors. As basic models we employ the Hénon map and the Lozi map. We show that phase and amplitude chimera states appear in a ring of coupled Hénon maps, while no chimeras are observed in an ensemble of coupled Lozi maps. In the latter, the transition to spatio-temporal chaos occurs via solitary states. We present numerical results for the coupling function which describes the impact of neighboring oscillators on each partial element of an ensemble with nonlocal coupling. Varying the coupling strength we analyze the evolution of the coupling function and discuss in detail its role in the “coherence–incoherence” transition in the ensembles of Hénon and Lozi maps.
Keywords: ensemble of nonlocally coupled oscillators, chimera states, solitary states, hyperbolic and nonhyperbolic attractors, coupling function

Tsiganov A. V.
We present auto and hetero Bäcklund transformations of the nonholonomic Veselova system using standard divisor arithmetic on the hyperelliptic curve of genus two. As a by-product one gets two natural integrable systems on the cotangent bundle to the unit two-dimensional sphere whose additional integrals of motion are polynomials in the momenta of fourth order.
Keywords: nonholonomic dynamical system, bi-Hamiltonian geometry, Bäcklund transformations

This paper is concerned with the Hess case in the Euler–Poisson equations and with its generalization on the pencil of Poisson brackets. It is shown that in this case the problem reduces to investigating the vector field on a torus and that the graph showing the dependence of the rotation number on parameters has horizontal segments (limit cycles) only for integer values of the rotation number. In addition, an example of a Hamiltonian system is given which possesses an invariant submanifold (similar to the Hess case), but on which the dependence of the rotation number on parameters is a Cantor ladder.
Keywords: invariant submanifold, rotation number, Cantor ladder, limit cycles
