Legacy of Alexander Mikhailovich Lyapunov and nonlinear dynamics

Aim. The aim of the work is to study the scientific heritage of A.M. Lyapunov from the standpoint of nonlinear physics. Fundamental importance Lyapunov’s contribution is determined not only by the methods he created, which became the basis of the mathematical apparatus in the study of nonlinear phenomena, but his ideas and concepts introduced by him contributed to the formation of concepts and principles of nonlinear dynamics. Method. The study is based on an analysis of Lyapunov’s original works with the involvement of existing literature on his scientific heritage.
