present a method for finding the most general forms of a non-standard scheme

this method have also been discovered through an alternative method by Roeger

Next we look at discretizing examples of 3-dimensional bi-Hamiltonian systems

Finally chapter 6 looks at systems with cubic vector fields and limit cycles with

First we look at a trimolecular system and then a Hamiltonian system that has a

quartic potential.
