Selected Topics in Local Bifurcation Theory

  • James Murdock
Part of the Springer Monographs in Mathematics book series (SMM)


As the title indicates, this short final chapter is not intended to be a complete treatment of bifurcation theory, or even a complete overview. Instead, we focus on certain specific topics, chosen because they are closely related to the main themes of this book, or because they are not developed extensively in other monographs. Among these topics are the questions of jet sufficiency, the computation of unfoldings, and the rescaling of unfolded systems.
