Hello I have started working on my PhD a short while ago and wondered if there might be any good introductions to spatial dynamics.

I have a basic understanding of dynamical systems but would like to expand further on it.

Thank you for your recommendations.

    $\begingroup$ This is a bit broad. What is your advisor suggesting? $\endgroup$ – András Bátkai Jan 18 '16 at 13:24
  • $\begingroup$ For the beginning he suggested the notes dam.brown.edu/people/sandsted/documents/… to me. I'm sorry I should have been more specific about my intentions: I would like to understand the center manifold theorem a bit better and the reduction of pdes to systems of odes in an infinite dimensional space. $\endgroup$ – lKyouma Jan 18 '16 at 13:42
  • $\begingroup$ Dan Henry's Geometric Theory of Semilinear Parabolic Equations is a classic. $\endgroup$ – Aaron Hoffman Jan 19 '16 at 21:20

Based on your comment, the book

M. Haragus, G. Iooss: Local Bifurcations, Center Manifolds, and Normal Forms in Infinite-Dimensional Dynamical Systems, Springer, 2011

might be of some interest to you.
