Singularities of transient processes in dynamics and beyond. Comment on "Long transients in ecology: Theory and applications" by Andrew Morozov et al.
This note is a brief review of the analysis of long transients in dynamical systems. The problem of long transients arose in many disciplines, from physical and chemical kinetic to biology and even social sciences. Detailed analysis of singularities of various `relaxation times' associated long transients with bifurcations of $\omega$-limit sets, homoclinic structures (intersections of $\alpha$- and $\omega$-limit sets) and other peculiarities of dynamics. This review was stimulated by the analysis of anomalously long transients in ecology published recently by A. Morozov and S. Petrovskii with co-authors.
