Organization of the periodicity in the parameter-space of a glycolysis discrete-time mathematical model

Original Paper


In this paper, we report on the dynamics of a discrete-time mathematical model, which is obtained by the forward Euler method from the continuous-time mathematical model of the glycolysis process. More specifically, here we investigate the parameter-space of a two-dimensional map resulting from this discretization process. Different places where period-doubling and Naimark–Sacker bifurcations occur are determined. We also investigate the organization of typical periodic structures embedded in a quasiperiodic region which is a result of a Naimark–Sacker bifurcation. We identify period-adding, Farey, and Fibonacci sequences of periodic structures embedded in this quasiperiodic region.
