# Singular perturbations of finite dimensional gradient flows

• In this paper we give a description of the asymptotic behavior, as $\varepsilon\to 0$, of the $\varepsilon$-gradient flow in the finite dimensional case. Under very general assumptions, we prove that it converges to an evolution obtained by connecting some smooth branches of solutions to the equilibrium equation (slow dynamics) through some heteroclinic solutions of the gradient flow (fast dynamics).
