Many multiple time scale systems are capable of generating intricate patterns. In this chapter, we are going to focus on periodic oscillations where the fast–slow structure plays a crucial role in the generating mechanism. Let us point out that we do not aim at a complete classification. The focus is on examples and prototype mechanisms. There are two main keywords associated with this area that we want to explore: mixed-mode oscillations (MMOs) and bursting.
