Hopf bifurcations in dynamical systems

The onset of instability in autonomous dynamical systems (ADS) of ordinary differential equations is investigated. Binary, ternary and quaternary ADS are taken into account. The stability frontier of the spectrum is analyzed. Conditions necessary and sufficient for the occurring of Hopf, Hopf–Steady, Double-Hopf and unsteady aperiodic bifurcations—in closed form—and conditions guaranteeing the absence of unsteady bifurcations via symmetrizability, are obtained. The continuous triopoly Cournot game of mathematical economy is taken into account and it is shown that the ternary ADS governing the Nash equilibrium stability, is symmetrizable. The onset of Hopf bifurcations in rotatory thermal hydrodynamics is studied and the Hopf bifurcation number (threshold that the Taylor number crosses at the onset of Hopf bifurcations) is obtained.
