Title: Homoclinic orbit solutions of a one Dimensional
Wilson-Cowan type model
Author: Edward P. Krisner (Univ. of Pittsburgh at Greensburg, PA, USA)
Abstract:
We analyze a time independent integral equation defined on a
spatially extended domain which arises in the modelling of neuronal
networks. In this paper, the coupling function is oscillatory and
the firing rate is a smooth "heaviside-like" function. We will
derive an associated fourth order ODE and establish that any bounded
solution of the ODE is also a solution of the integral equation. We
will then apply shooting arguments to prove that the ODE has
N-bump homoclinic orbit solutions for any even-valued N>0.
homoclinic orbit.
