The variational equation is the mathematics that goes with pictures like this:

This equation describes how pertubations (or state-space volumes) evolve along a trajectory. This kind of information is essential to any kind of in-depth understanding of the

landscapes of dynamical systems: stability, Liouville’s theorem and dissipation, un/stable

manifolds, λs, etc.

Given some state-space point ~x0 and some dynamical system ~x′ = F~ (~x), it’s easy to

generate the state-space trajectory φ(~x0 ) that emanates from that point; just use any old

ODE solver like RK4. What we’d like to know, now, is how that would change if someone

wiggled ~x. Consider the R¨ossler system

with ~x0 = [0, 1, 2]T . The state-space trajectory φ(~x0 ) from that point is shown below:

it will not change length. that arrow will shrink • If it points out diagonally from a saddle point (not in the direction of either the stable or the unstable direction). The formal way to describe these differential slopes to which the variations react is with partial derivatives: ∂fx ∂y 2 . as well as the resultant to which all three add up in the end (which is equal to the volume into which the original box has grown). in the x-direction. it will be pulled sideways: it will grow along the unstable direction and shrink along the stable one • If it points out over a region of constant slope. that arrow will lengthen • If it points over a gentle rise. depends on the differential slope of the ODE “landscape” around the trajectory: • If a particular perturbation points out over a sharp dropoff.Imagine. that we add a small perturbation to ~x0 . That perturbation will evolve as the system moves along the trajectory: The same is also true of perturbations in the other two directions: The change in length and orientation of each arrow. now.

the Jacobian is 0 −1 −1 0 1 0. ˙ = Dx F~ [δ]. so you need n2 of these different partials to describe everything. there are n variables and n slopes.398 z 0 x−4 The last thing we need to set up the variational equation is a way to describe the variations.398 δxz δyz δzz z 0 x−4 δ˙xz δ˙yz δ˙zz To figure out what happens to the variations. To do this.for instance. In n dimensions. is how much the x-slope (fx ) changes if you wiggle y. this looks like: δ˙xx δ˙yx δ˙zx δxx δyx δzx 0 −1 −1 ˙ 0 δxy δyy δzy δxy δ˙yy δ˙zy = 1 0. The rows are the coordinates of the vectors into which the original x. and so on. Again. The notation is a little complicated. y. there are nine of these: δxx δyx δzx [δ] = δxy δyy δzy δxz δyz δzz The column sums of this matrix are the lengths of the x. y. or The variational equation is [δ] δ˙xx δ˙yx δ˙zx ˙ δxy δ˙yy δ˙zy = δ˙xz δ˙yz δ˙zz ∂fx ∂x ∂fy ∂x ∂fz ∂x ∂fx ∂y ∂fy ∂y ∂fz ∂y ∂fx ∂z ∂fy ∂z ∂fz ∂z δ δyx δzx xx δxy δyy δzy δxz δyz δzz For the R¨ossler system. One way to write these down is in an n × n matrix called the Jacobian: Dx F~ = ∂fx ∂x ∂fy ∂x ∂fz ∂x ∂fx ∂y ∂fy ∂y ∂fz ∂y ∂fx ∂z ∂fy ∂z ∂fz ∂z For the R¨ossler system. you work with a new n + n2 length augmented state vector: (x y z δxx δxy δxz δyx δyy δyz δzx δzy δzz ) and its derivative: (x˙ y˙ z˙ δ˙xx δ˙xy δ˙xz δ˙yx δ˙yy δ˙yz δ˙zx δ˙zy δ˙zz ) 3 . and z coordinates (respectively) of the evolved variation. δxy is the component of the x variation that came from the previous y variation. and z components of the variation have evolved. you have to solve the variational equation and the system equation simultaneously (because the variations react to the differential slopes at each point along the trajectory).

it’s just a 12D system instead of R¨ossler’s three.89 0.95 0.61ˆ y −0.79+0.79X+0.48 0. Say.. The total x variation at t = 5sec is δxx +δxy +δxz = 0.˙ = .89.398δxy δ˙xz = zδxx + (x − 4)δxz δ˙yx = −δyy − δyz δ˙yy = δyx + 0.455 24.204 0.79 − 0.23 0.79ˆ x +0.61Y-0. 2]T . for the purposes of this example.14Z ^ ^ ^ X+Y+Z 4 . you need to look at the appropriate rows or columns. The equations are: x˙ = −(y + z) y˙ = x + 0.398y z˙ = 2 + z(x − 4) δ˙xx = −δxy − δxz δ˙xy = δxx + 0.79 0..61 1.05 seconds. the new state of this augmented system were: [13.14 − 0.66 To figure out the actual variations from this. if you want to see how unit variations grow near the point [0.14ˆ z: ^ ^ ^ 0. that after 100 steps at 0.95+0.398δyy δ˙yz = zδyx + (x − 4)δyz δ˙zx = −δzy − δzz δ˙zy = δzx + 0. the original x perturbation (at t = 0) has grown into the vector δxx xˆ +δyx yˆ+δzx zˆ = 0.087 23. For example. you’d fire up your ODE solver starting at [0 1 2 1 0 0 0 1 0 0 0 1] and let it go. 1.and you stack the system equation ~x′ = F~ ~x on top of the variational equation [δ] Dx F~ [δ].398δzy δ˙zz = zδzx + (x − 4)δzz If you wrote your RK4 for arbitrary length vectors and derivatives. you should have no problem here.
