Title: Gradient-like flows on high-dimensional manifolds
Author: Cruz, RN
De Rezende, KA
Abstract: The main purpose of this paper is to study the implications that the homology index of critical sets of smooth flows on closed manifolds M have on both the homology of level sets of M and the homology of M itself. The bookkeeping of the data containing the critical set information of the flow and topological information of M is done through the use of Lyapunov graphs. Our main result characterizes the necessary conditions that a Lyapunov graph must possess in order to be associated to a Morse-Smale flow. With additional restrictions on an abstract Lyapunov graph L we determine sufficient conditions for L to be associated to a how on M.
