Two Degrees of Freedom with (Z2Z2)-Symmetry

Part of the Applied Mathematical Sciences book series (AMS, volume 51)


In this chapter we explore the role of symmetry in the study of bifurcation problems. Specifically, we analyze a family of bifurcation problems in two state variables that commute with the group Z 2Z 2. Although even in this special case our discussion is necessarily incomplete, it indicates the directions of the general theory.
