Sensitivity, strong mixing, weak mixing, strong sensitivity, multisensitivity, syndetic sensitivity, thick sensitivity, thick syndetic sensitivity, periodic sensitivity, thick periodic sensitivity


We discuss the implications between various types of sensitivity in general semiflows (sensitivity, syndetic sensitivity, thick sensitivity, thick syndetic sensitivity, multisensitivity, periodic sensitivity, thick periodic sensitivity), including the weak mixing as a very strong type of sensitivity and the strong mixing as the strongest of all type of sensitivity.
