Abstract

A dynamical exponent, termed the 'persistence of strain', is defined for systems of ordinary differential equations. Analogy with fluid dynamics suggests that it can provide a convenient-and easily computed-characterisation of a dynamical system and, in particular, the geometry of attracting sets.
