Abstract

The paper discusses the interrelationship between statical chaos and dynamical initial value problems. It is pointed out that approximate homoclinic and heteroclinic solitons can be perturbed to produce spacial asymptotic chaos in some buckled structural elastic systems which constitute strictly speaking boundary value problems.
