Calculation of the Branching Behavior of Nonlinear Equations

Part of the Interdisciplinary Applied Mathematics book series (IAM, volume 5)


Equipped now with some knowledge about continuation, we assume that we are able to trace branches. We take for granted thatthe entirebranch canbe traced, provided one solution on that branch can be found. In this chapter we address problems of locating bifurcation points and switching branches. Essential ideas and methods needed for a practical bifurcation and stability analysis are presented.
