  • Yushu Chen
  • Andrew Y. T. Leung


In this chapter, section 5.1 studies another main method for the local bifurcation of dynamical systems: the Centre Manifold Theorem. In section 5.2, the centre manifold theorem is used to analyse simple bifurcation. In the section 5.3, the Normal Form theory of vector fields is introduced.
