    Electron bifurcation is the recently recognized third mechanism of biological energy conservation. It simultaneously couples exergonic and endergonic oxidation-reduction reactions to circumvent thermodynamic barriers and minimize free energy loss. Little is known about the details of how electron bifurcating enzymes function, but specifics are beginning to emerge for several bifurcating enzymes. To date, those characterized contain a collection of redox cofactors including flavins and iron-sulfur clusters. Here we discuss the current understanding of bifurcating enzymes and the mechanistic features required to reversibly partition multiple electrons from a single redox site into exergonic and endergonic electron transfer paths.

  2. Dynamic Bifurcations

    1991-01-01

    Dynamical Bifurcation Theory is concerned with the phenomena that occur in one parameter families of dynamical systems (usually ordinary differential equations), when the parameter is a slowly varying function of time. During the last decade these phenomena were observed and studied by many mathematicians, both pure and applied, from eastern and western countries, using classical and nonstandard analysis. It is the purpose of this book to give an account of these developments. The first paper, by C. Lobry, is an introduction: the reader will find here an explanation of the problems and some easy examples; this paper also explains the role of each of the other paper within the volume and their relationship to one another.

    After discussing common bifurcations of a one-parameter family of single variable functions, we introduce sprinkler bifurcations, in which any number of new fixed points emanate from a single point. Based on observations of these and other bifurcations, we then prove a number of general results about the stabilities of fixed points near a…

  4. About Bifurcational Parametric Simplification

    CERN Document Server

    Gol'dshtein, V; Yablonsky, G

    2015-01-01

    A concept of "critical" simplification was proposed by Yablonsky and Lazman in 1996 for the oxidation of carbon monoxide over a platinum catalyst using a Langmuir-Hinshelwood mechanism. The main observation was a simplification of the mechanism at ignition and extinction points. The critical simplification is an example of a much more general phenomenon that we call \\emph{a bifurcational parametric simplification}. Ignition and extinction points are points of equilibrium multiplicity bifurcations, i.e., they are points of a corresponding bifurcation set for parameters. Any bifurcation produces a dependence between system parameters. This is a mathematical explanation and/or justification of the "parametric simplification". It leads us to a conjecture that "maximal bifurcational parametric simplification" corresponds to the "maximal bifurcation complexity." This conjecture can have practical applications for experimental study, because at points of "maximal bifurcation complexity" the number of independent sys...

    2002-01-01

    Parameterized dynamical systems with a simple zero eigenvalue and a couple of purely imaginary eigenvalues are considered. It is proved that this type of eigen-structure leads to torns bifurcation under certain nondegenerate conditions. We show that the discrete systems, obtained by discretizing the ODEs using symmetric, eigen-structure preserving schemes, inherit the similar torus bifurcation properties. Fredholm theory in Banach spaces is applied to obtain the global torns bifurcation. Our results complement those on the study of discretization effects of global bifurcation.

  7. Relative Lyapunov Center Bifurcations

    DEFF Research Database (Denmark)

    Wulff, Claudia; Schilder, Frank

    2014-01-01

    Relative equilibria (REs) and relative periodic orbits (RPOs) are ubiquitous in symmetric Hamiltonian systems and occur, for example, in celestial mechanics, molecular dynamics, and rigid body motion. REs are equilibria, and RPOs are periodic orbits of the symmetry reduced system. Relative Lyapunov...... center bifurcations are bifurcations of RPOs from REs corresponding to Lyapunov center bifurcations of the symmetry reduced dynamics. In this paper we first prove a relative Lyapunov center theorem by combining recent results on the persistence of RPOs in Hamiltonian systems with a symmetric Lyapunov...... center theorem of Montaldi, Roberts, and Stewart. We then develop numerical methods for the detection of relative Lyapunov center bifurcations along branches of RPOs and for their computation. We apply our methods to Lagrangian REs of the N-body problem....

    When a dog (in this case, Tim Pennings' dog Elvis) is in the water and a ball is thrown downshore, it must choose to swim directly to the ball or first swim to shore. The mathematical analysis of this problem leads to the computation of bifurcation points at which the optimal strategy changes.

  9. Bifurcation of hyperbolic planforms

    CERN Document Server

    Chossat, Pascal; Faugeras, Olivier

    2010-01-01

    Motivated by a model for the perception of textures by the visual cortex in primates, we analyse the bifurcation of periodic patterns for nonlinear equations describing the state of a system defined on the space of structure tensors, when these equations are further invariant with respect to the isometries of this space. We show that the problem reduces to a bifurcation problem in the hyperbolic plane D (Poincar\\'e disc). We make use of the concept of periodic lattice in D to further reduce the problem to one on a compact Riemann surface D/T, where T is a cocompact, torsion-free Fuchsian group. The knowledge of the symmetry group of this surface allows to carry out the machinery of equivariant bifurcation theory. Solutions which generically bifurcate are called "H-planforms", by analogy with the "planforms" introduced for pattern formation in Euclidean space. This concept is applied to the case of an octagonal periodic pattern, where we are able to classify all possible H-planforms satisfying the hypotheses o...

  10. Local Bifurcations in DC-DC Converters

    OpenAIRE

    2012-01-01

    Three local bifurcations in DC-DC converters are reviewed. They are period-doubling bifurcation, saddle-node bifurcation, and Neimark bifurcation. A general sampled-data model is employed to study the types of loss of stability of the nominal (periodic) solution and their connection with local bifurcations. More accurate prediction of instability and bifurcation than using the averaging approach is obtained. Examples of bifurcations associated with instabilities in DC-DC converters are given.

  11. Bifurcation of Scramjet Unstart

    Science.gov (United States)

    Jang, Ik; Nichols, Joseph; Duraisamy, Karthik; Moin, Parviz

    2011-11-01

    We investigate the bifurcation structure of catastrophic unstart in scramjets. The bifurcation of quasi-one-dimensional Rayleigh flow is first analyzed, followed by a numerical investigation of a more realistic model scramjet isolator (Wagner et al., AIAA paper, 2010). We show that the quasi-one-dimensional model recovers a similar hysteresis behavior as that observed in steady Reynolds-Averaged Navier-Stokes simulations of the model scramjet isolator close to the onset of unstart. In the hysteresis zone, steady but unstable solutions are obtained by means of pseudo-arclength continuation. Automatic differentiation permits the use of fully discrete Jacobians that result in an accurate representation of functional dependencies and linearized dynamics. Furthermore, we use an Arnoldi method to extract the least stable direct and adjoint eigenfunctions spanning the system dynamics close to unstart and obtain the system response to both harmonic and stochastic forcing. This information, along with the final bifurcation structure, allows us to evaluate the effectiveness of different metrics as indicators of the onset of unstart.

    2000-01-01

    Bifurcations of nontwisted and fine heteroclinic loops are studied for higher dimensional systems. The existence and its associated existing regions are given for the 1-hom orbit and the 1-per orbit, respectively, and bifurcation surfaces of the two-fold periodic orbit are also obtained. At last, these bifurcation results are applied to the fine heteroclinic loop for the planar system, which leads to some new and interesting results.

  13. Impedance matching at arterial bifurcations.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Brown, N

    1993-01-01

    Reflections of pulse waves will occur in arterial bifurcations unless the impedance is matched continuously through changing geometric and elastic properties. A theoretical model is presented which minimizes pulse wave reflection through bifurcations. The model accounts for the observed linear changes in area within the bifurcation, generalizes the theory to asymmetrical bifurcations, characterizes changes in elastic properties from parent to daughter arteries, and assesses the effect of branch angle on the mechanical properties of daughter vessels. In contradistinction to previous models, reflections cannot be minimized without changes in elastic properties through bifurcations. The theoretical model predicts that in bifurcations with area ratios (beta) less than 1.0 Young's moduli of daughter vessels may be less than that in the parent vessel if the Womersley parameter alpha in the parent vessel is less than 5. Larger area ratios in bifurcations are accompanied by greater increases in Young's moduli of branches. For an idealized symmetric aortic bifurcation (alpha = 10) with branching angles theta = 30 degrees (opening angle 60 degrees) Young's modulus of common iliac arteries relative to that of the distal abdominal aorta has an increase of 1.05, 1.68 and 2.25 for area ratio of 0.8, 1.0 and 1.15, respectively. These predictions are consistent with the observed increases in Young's moduli of peripheral vessels.(ABSTRACT TRUNCATED AT 250 WORDS)

  15. Neural Excitability and Singular Bifurcations.

    Science.gov (United States)

    De Maesschalck, Peter; Wechselberger, Martin

    2015-12-01

    We discuss the notion of excitability in 2D slow/fast neural models from a geometric singular perturbation theory point of view. We focus on the inherent singular nature of slow/fast neural models and define excitability via singular bifurcations. In particular, we show that type I excitability is associated with a novel singular Bogdanov-Takens/SNIC bifurcation while type II excitability is associated with a singular Andronov-Hopf bifurcation. In both cases, canards play an important role in the understanding of the unfolding of these singular bifurcation structures. We also explain the transition between the two excitability types and highlight all bifurcations involved, thus providing a complete analysis of excitability based on geometric singular perturbation theory.

  16. Continuum Hamiltonian Hopf Bifurcation II

    CERN Document Server

    Hagstrom, G I

    2013-01-01

    Building on the development of [MOR13], bifurcation of unstable modes that emerge from continuous spectra in a class of infinite-dimensional noncanonical Hamiltonian systems is investigated. Of main interest is a bifurcation termed the continuum Hamiltonian Hopf (CHH) bifurcation, which is an infinite-dimensional analog of the usual Hamiltonian Hopf (HH) bifurcation. Necessary notions pertaining to spectra, structural stability, signature of the continuous spectra, and normal forms are described. The theory developed is applicable to a wide class of 2+1 noncanonical Hamiltonian matter models, but the specific example of the Vlasov-Poisson system linearized about homogeneous (spatially independent) equilibria is treated in detail. For this example, structural (in)stability is established in an appropriate functional analytic setting, and two kinds of bifurcations are considered, one at infinite and one at finite wavenumber. After defining and describing the notion of dynamical accessibility, Kre\\u{i}n-like the...

  17. Speciation and bifurcations.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Volkenstein, M V; Livshits, M A

    1989-01-01

    The interrelations of physics and biology are discussed. It is shown that Darwin can be considered as one of the founders of the important field of contemporary physics called physics of dissipative structures or synergetics. The theories of gradual and punctual evolution are presented. The contradiction between these theories can be solved on the basis of molecular theory of evolution and on the basis of the phenomenological physical treatment. The general physical properties of living systems, considered as open systems being far from equilibrium, are listed and simple non-linear mathematical models describing gradual and punctual speciation are suggested. The usual pictures which present these two kinds of speciation can possess physico-mathematical sense. Punctuated speciation means bifurcation, a kind of non-equilibrium phase transition.

    1993-01-01

    Bifurcation originally meant "splitting into two parts. " Namely, a system under­ goes a bifurcation when there is a qualitative change in the behavior of the sys­ tem. Bifurcation in the context of dynamical systems, where the time evolution of systems are involved, has been the subject of research for many scientists and engineers for the past hundred years simply because bifurcations are interesting. A very good way of understanding bifurcations would be to see them first and study theories second. Another way would be to first comprehend the basic concepts and theories and then see what they look like. In any event, it is best to both observe experiments and understand the theories of bifurcations. This book attempts to provide a general audience with both avenues toward understanding bifurcations. Specifically, (1) A variety of concrete experimental results obtained from electronic circuits are given in Chapter 1. All the circuits are very simple, which is crucial in any experiment. The circuits, howev...

  19. DYNAMIC BIFURCATION OF NONLINEAR EVOLUTION EQUATIONS

    Institute of Scientific and Technical Information of China (English)

    MA TIAN; WANG SHOUHONG

    2005-01-01

    The authors introduce a notion of dynamic bifurcation for nonlinear evolution equations, which can be called attractor bifurcation. It is proved that as the control parameter crosses certain critical value, the system bifurcates from a trivial steady state solution to an attractor with dimension between m and m + 1, where m + 1 is the number of eigenvalues crossing the imaginary axis. The attractor bifurcation theory presented in this article generalizes the existing steady state bifurcations and the Hopf bifurcations. It provides a unified point of view on dynamic bifurcation and can be applied to many problems in physics and mechanics.

  20. Bifurcation Adds Flavor to Basketball

    CERN Document Server

    Min, Byeong June

    2016-01-01

    We report an emergence of bifurcation in basketball, a single-particle system governed by Newtonian mechanics. When shooting the basketball, the obvious control parameters are the launch speed and the launch angle. We propose to use the three-dimensional velocity phase-space volume associated with the given launch parameters to quantify the difficulty of the shooting. The optimal launch angle that maximizes the associated phase-space volume undergoes a bifurcation as the launch speed is increased, if the shooter is farther than a critical distance away from the hoop. Thus, the bifurcation makes it very important to control the launch speed accurately. If the air resistance is removed, the bifurcation disappears and the phase-space volume distribution becomes dispersionless and shrinks in magnitude.

    2015-09-01

    Invariant manifolds are key objects in describing how trajectories partition the phase spaces of a dynamical system. Examples include stable, unstable, and center manifolds of equilibria and periodic orbits, quasiperiodic invariant tori, and slow manifolds of systems with multiple timescales. Changes in these objects and their intersections with variation of system parameters give rise to global bifurcations. Bifurcation manifolds in the parameter spaces of multi-parameter families of dynamical systems also play a prominent role in dynamical systems theory. Much progress has been made in developing theory and computational methods for invariant manifolds during the past 25 years. This article highlights some of these achievements and remaining open problems.

    Full Text Available Bifurcation control has attracted increasing attention in recent years. A simple and unified state-feedback methodology is developed in this paper for Hopf bifurcation control for discrete-time systems. The control task can be either shifting an existing Hopf bifurcation or creating a new Hopf bifurcation. Some computer simulations are included to illustrate the methodology and to verify the theoretical results.

    This work presents an exploratory study of the critical aspects of some well-known bifurcations in the context of thermodynamic geometry. For each bifurcation its normal form is regarded as a geodesic equation of some model analogous to a thermodynamic system. From this hypothesis it is possible to calculate the corresponding metric and curvature and analyze the critical behavior of the bifurcation.

    Burgers equation is reduced into a first-order ordinary differential equation by using travelling wave transformation and it has typical bifurcation characteristics. We can obtain many exact solutions of the Burgers equation, discuss its transcritical bifurcation and control dynamical behaviours by extending the stable region. The transcritical bifurcation exists in the (2 + 1)-dimensional Burgers equation.

    2008-01-01

    @@ We show that symmetry-breaking (SB) bifurcation is just a transition of different forms of symmetry, while still preserving system's symmetry. SB bifurcation always associates with a periodic saddle-node bifurcation, identifiable by a zero maximum of the top Lyapunov exponent of the system. In addition, we show a significant phase portrait of a newly born periodic saddle and its stable and unstable invariant manifolds, together with their neighbouring flow pattern of Poincaré mapping points just after the periodic saddle-node bifurcation, thus gaining an insight into the mechanism of SB bifurcation.

  10. Escape statistics for parameter sweeps through bifurcations.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Miller, Nicholas J; Shaw, Steven W

    2012-04-01

    We consider the dynamics of systems undergoing parameter sweeps through bifurcation points in the presence of noise. Of interest here are local codimension-one bifurcations that result in large excursions away from an operating point that is transitioning from stable to unstable during the sweep, since information about these "escape events" can be used for system identification, sensing, and other applications. The analysis is based on stochastic normal forms for the dynamic saddle-node and subcritical pitchfork bifurcations with a time-varying bifurcation parameter and additive noise. The results include formulation and numerical solution for the distribution of escape events in the general case and analytical approximations for delayed bifurcations for which escape occurs well beyond the corresponding quasistatic bifurcation points. These bifurcations result in amplitude jumps encountered during parameter sweeps and are particularly relevant to nano- and microelectromechanical systems, for which noise can play a significant role.

  11. Bifurcations analysis of turbulent energy cascade

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    Divitiis, Nicola de, E-mail: n.dedivitiis@gmail.com

    2015-03-15

    This note studies the mechanism of turbulent energy cascade through an opportune bifurcations analysis of the Navier–Stokes equations, and furnishes explanations on the more significant characteristics of the turbulence. A statistical bifurcations property of the Navier–Stokes equations in fully developed turbulence is proposed, and a spatial representation of the bifurcations is presented, which is based on a proper definition of the fixed points of the velocity field. The analysis first shows that the local deformation can be much more rapid than the fluid state variables, then explains the mechanism of energy cascade through the aforementioned property of the bifurcations, and gives reasonable argumentation of the fact that the bifurcations cascade can be expressed in terms of length scales. Furthermore, the study analyzes the characteristic length scales at the transition through global properties of the bifurcations, and estimates the order of magnitude of the critical Taylor-scale Reynolds number and the number of bifurcations at the onset of turbulence.

  12. Bifurcations analysis of oscillating hypercycles.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Guillamon, Antoni; Fontich, Ernest; Sardanyés, Josep

    2015-12-21

    We investigate the dynamics and transitions to extinction of hypercycles governed by periodic orbits. For a large enough number of hypercycle species (n>4) the existence of a stable periodic orbit has been previously described, showing an apparent coincidence of the vanishing of the periodic orbit with the value of the replication quality factor Q where two unstable (non-zero) equilibrium points collide (named QSS). It has also been reported that, for values below QSS, the system goes to extinction. In this paper, we use a suitable Poincaré map associated to the hypercycle system to analyze the dynamics in the bistability regime, where both oscillatory dynamics and extinction are possible. The stable periodic orbit is identified, together with an unstable periodic orbit. In particular, we are able to unveil the vanishing mechanism of the oscillatory dynamics: a saddle-node bifurcation of periodic orbits as the replication quality factor, Q, undergoes a critical fidelity threshold, QPO. The identified bifurcation involves the asymptotic extinction of all hypercycle members, since the attractor placed at the origin becomes globally stable for values Qbifurcation, these extinction dynamics display a periodic remnant that provides the system with an oscillating delayed transition. Surprisingly, we found that the value of QPO is slightly higher than QSS, thus identifying a gap in the parameter space where the oscillatory dynamics has vanished while the unstable equilibrium points are still present. We also identified a degenerate bifurcation of the unstable periodic orbits for Q=1.

    2005-01-01

    Bifurcations of an airfoil with nonlinear pitching stiffness in incompressible flow are investigated. The pitching spring is regarded as a spring with cubic stiffness. The motion equations of the airfoil are written as the four dimensional one order differential equations. Taking air speed and the linear part of pitching stiffness as the parameters, the analytic solutions of the critical boundaries of pitchfork bifurcations and Hopf bifurcations are obtained in 2 dimensional parameter plane. The stabilities of the equilibrium points and the limit cycles in different regions of 2 dimensional parameter plane are analyzed. By means of harmonic balance method, the approximate critical boundaries of 2-multiple semi-stable limit cycle bifurcations are obtained, and the bifurcation points of supercritical or subcritical Hopf bifurcation are found. Some numerical simulation results are given.

    It is shown that Einstein's field equations for \\emph{all} perfect-fluid $k=0$ FLRW cosmologies have the same form as the topological normal form of a fold bifurcation. In particular, we assume that the cosmological constant is a bifurcation parameter, and as such, fold bifurcation behaviour is shown to occur in a neighbourhood of Minkowski spacetime in the phase space. We show that as this cosmological constant parameter is varied, an expanding and contracting de Sitter universe \\emph{emerge} via this bifurcation.

  18. Crisis bifurcations in plane Poiseuille flow.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Zammert, Stefan; Eckhardt, Bruno

    2015-04-01

    Many shear flows follow a route to turbulence that has striking similarities to bifurcation scenarios in low-dimensional dynamical systems. Among the bifurcations that appear, crisis bifurcations are important because they cause global transitions between open and closed attractors, or indicate drastic increases in the range of the state space that is covered by the dynamics. We here study exterior and interior crisis bifurcations in direct numerical simulations of transitional plane Poiseuille flow in a mirror-symmetric subspace. We trace the state space dynamics from the appearance of the first three-dimensional exact coherent structures to the transition from an attractor to a chaotic saddle in an exterior crisis. For intermediate Reynolds numbers, the attractor undergoes several interior crises, in which new states appear and intermittent behavior can be observed. The bifurcations contribute to increasing the complexity of the dynamics and to a more dense coverage of state space.

  19. Twisted and Nontwisted Bifurcations Induced by Diffusion

    CERN Document Server

    Lin, X B

    1996-01-01

    We discuss a diffusively perturbed predator-prey system. Freedman and Wolkowicz showed that the corresponding ODE can have a periodic solution that bifurcates from a homoclinic loop. When the diffusion coefficients are large, this solution represents a stable, spatially homogeneous time-periodic solution of the PDE. We show that when the diffusion coefficients become small, the spatially homogeneous periodic solution becomes unstable and bifurcates into spatially nonhomogeneous periodic solutions. The nature of the bifurcation is determined by the twistedness of an equilibrium/homoclinic bifurcation that occurs as the diffusion coefficients decrease. In the nontwisted case two spatially nonhomogeneous simple periodic solutions of equal period are generated, while in the twisted case a unique spatially nonhomogeneous double periodic solution is generated through period-doubling. Key Words: Reaction-diffusion equations; predator-prey systems; homoclinic bifurcations; periodic solutions.

    1994-12-31

    This paper considers the importance of the choice of bifurcation parameter in the determination of the voltage stability limit and the maximum power load ability of a system. When the bifurcation parameter is power demand, the two limits are equivalent. However, when other types of load models and bifurcation parameters are considered, the two concepts differ. The continuation method is considered as a method for determination of voltage stability margins. Three variants of the continuation method are described: the continuation parameter is the bifurcation parameter the continuation parameter is initially the bifurcation parameter, but is free to change, and the continuation parameter is a new `arc length` parameter. Implementations of voltage stability software using continuation methods are described. (author) 23 refs., 9 figs.

This storytelling template presents the stages of inner metamorphosis undergone by the protagonist after being called to an adventure. In a simplified version, this journey is divided into three acts separated by two crucial moments. Here we propose a discrete-time dynamical system for representing the protagonist's evolution. The suffering along the journey is taken as the control parameter of this system. The bifurcation diagram exhibits stationary, periodic and chaotic behaviors. In this diagram, there are transition from fixed point to chaos and transition from limit cycle to fixed point. We found that the values of the control parameter corresponding to these two transitions are in quantitative agreement with the two critical moments of the three-act hero's journey identified in 10 movies appearing in the list of the 200 worldwide highest-grossing films.

    Considering a set of two coupled nonautonomous differential equations with discontinuous right-hand sides describing the behavior of a DC/DC power converter, we discuss a border-collision bifurcation that can lead to the birth of a two-dimensional invariant torus from a stable node equilibrium...... linear approximation to our system in the neighbourhood of the border. We determine the functional relationships between the parameters of the normal form map and the actual system and illustrate how the normal form theory can predict the bifurcation behaviour along the border-collision equilibrium......-torus bifurcation curve....

    2007-01-01

    Although, bifurcation theory of equations with autonomous and periodic time dependence is a major object of research in the study of dynamical systems since decades, the notion of a nonautonomous bifurcation is not yet established. In this book, two different approaches are developed which are based on special definitions of local attractivity and repulsivity. It is shown that these notions lead to nonautonomous Morse decompositions, which are useful to describe the global asymptotic behavior of systems on compact phase spaces. Furthermore, methods from the qualitative theory for linear and nonlinear systems are derived, and nonautonomous counterparts of the classical one-dimensional autonomous bifurcation patterns are developed.

    Cellular cell pattern evolution of cylindrically-diverging detonations is numerically simulated successfully by solving two-dimensional Euler equations implemented with an improved two-step chemical kinetic model. From the simulation, three cell bifurcation modes are observed during the evolution and referred to as concave front focusing, kinked and wrinkled wave front instability, and self-merging of cellular cells. Numerical research demonstrates that the wave front expansion resulted from detonation front diverging plays a major role in the cellular cell bifurcation, which can disturb the nonlinearly self-sustained mechanism of detonations and finally lead to cell bifurcations.

    The effects of the constant excitation on the local bifurcation of the periodic solutions in the 1:2 internal resonant systems were analyzed based on the singularity theory. It is shown that the constant excitation make influence only when there exist some nonlinear terms, in the oscillator with lower frequency. Besides acting as main bifurcation parameter, the constant excitation, together with coefficients of some nonlinear terms,may change the values of unfolding parameters and the type of the bifurcation. Under the non-degenerate cases, the effect of the third order terms can be neglected.

    The bifurcation behavior of the CO coupling reactor was examined based on the one-dimensional pseudohomogeneous axial dispersion dynamic model. The method of finite difference was used for solving the boundary value problem; the continuation technique and the direct method were applied to determine the bifurcation diagram.The effects of dimensionless adiabatic temperature rise, Damkoehler number, activation energy, heat transfer coefficient and feed ratio on the bifurcation behavior were investigated. It was shown that there existed static bifurcation and the oscillations did not occur in the reactor. The result also revealed that the reactor exhibited at most 1-3-1 multiplilicity patterns within the range of practical possible parameters and the measures, such as weakening the axial dispersion of reactor, enhancing heat transfer, decreasing the concentration of ethyl nitrite, were efficient for avoiding the possible risk of multiple steady states.

  13. Bifurcations and Chaos in Duffing Equation

    Institute of Scientific and Technical Information of China (English)

    2007-01-01

    The Duffing equation with even-odd asymmetrical nonlinear-restoring force and one external forcing is investigated. The conditions of existence of primary resonance, second-order, third-order subharmonics, m-order subharmonics and chaos are given by using the second-averaging method, the Melnikov method and bifurcation theory. Numerical simulations including bifurcation diagram, bifurcation surfaces and phase portraits show the consistence with the theoretical analysis. The numerical results also exhibit new dynamical behaviors including onset of chaos, chaos suddenly disappearing to periodic orbit, cascades of inverse period-doubling bifurcations, period-doubling bifurcation, symmetry period-doubling bifurcations of period-3 orbit, symmetry-breaking of periodic orbits, interleaving occurrence of chaotic behaviors and period-one orbit, a great abundance of periodic windows in transient chaotic regions with interior crises and boundary crisis and varied chaotic attractors. Our results show that many dynamical behaviors are strictly departure from the behaviors of the Duffing equation with odd-nonlinear restoring force.

  15. Parameterized center manifold for unfolding bifurcations with an eigenvalue +1 in n-dimensional maps

    Wen, Guilin; Yin, Shan; Xu, Huidong; Zhang, Sijin; Lv, Zengyao

    2016-10-01

    For the fold bifurcation with an eigenvalue +1, there are three types of potential solutions from saddle-node bifurcation, transcritical bifurcation and pitchfork bifurcation. In the existing analysis methods for high maps, there is a problem that for the fold bifurcation, saddle-node bifurcation and transcritical bifurcation cannot be distinguished by the center manifold without bifurcation parameter. In this paper, a parameterized center manifold has been derived to unfold the solutions of the fold bifurcation with an eigenvalue +1, which is used to reduce a general n-dimensional map to one-dimensional map. On the basis of the reduced map, the conditions of the fold bifurcations including saddle-node bifurcation, transcritical bifurcation and pitchfork bifurcation are established for general maps, respectively. We show the applications of the proposed bifurcation conditions by three four-dimensional map examples to distinguish saddle-node bifurcation, transcritical bifurcation and pitchfork bifurcation.

    Stability and dynamic bifurcation in the perturbed Kuramoto-Sivashinsky (KS) equation with Dirichlet boundary condition are investigated by using central manifold reduction procedure.The result shows, as the bifurcation parameter crosses a critical value, the system undergoes a pitchfork bifurcation to produce two asymptotically stable solutions.Furthermore, when the distance from bifurcation is of comparable order ∈2 (|∈| (≤) 1), the first two terms in e-expansions for the new asymptotic bifurcation solutions are derived by multiscale expansion method.Such information is useful to the bifurcation control.

    Local bifurcation phenomena in a four-dimensional continuous hyperchaotic system, which has rich and complex dynamical behaviours, are analysed. The local bifurcations of the system are investigated by utilizing the bifurcation theory and the centre manifold theorem, and thus the conditions of the existence of pitchfork bifurcation and Hopf bifurcation are derived in detail. Numerical simulations are presented to verify the theoretical analysis, and they show some interesting dynamics, including stable periodic orbits emerging from the new fixed points generated by pitchfork bifurcation, coexistence of a stable limit cycle and a chaotic attractor, as well as chaos within quite a wide parameter region.

  18. Secondary flow behavior in a double bifurcation

    Science.gov (United States)

    Leong, Fong Yew; Smith, Kenneth A.; Wang, Chi-Hwa

    2009-04-01

    Secondary flows in the form of multivortex structures can occur in bifurcation models as the result of upstream influence. Results from numerical modeling of steady inspiratory flows indicate that, for the case of a symmetric planar double bifurcation, four counter-rotating vortices develop in each of the grand daughter branches. In this paper, experimental visualization and verification is provided by particle image velocimetry measurements on a modified single bifurcation model. A splitter plate was positioned in the mother tube so that secondary vorticity was introduced into the fluid core. The axial velocity profile before the bifurcation junction resembles the M-shaped velocity profile commonly observed in bifurcated tube flows. The result of this manipulation is the development of a physically observable four-vortex configuration in the cross sections of the daughter branches, thus demonstrating the strong influence of upstream secondary vorticity. Through numerical visualization of vortex lines, it is shown that secondary vorticity is amplified by the extension of vortex lines due to secondary flow within the daughter tube. Order-of-magnitude arguments have been applied to the vorticity transport equation; and key dimensionless parameters have been obtained, accounting for curvature effects. Results indicate that the secondary vorticity goes through a maximum with increasing downstream distance, as a result of the interplay between vortex stretching and viscous effects.

  19. Alternate Pacing of Border-Collision Period-Doubling Bifurcations.

    2007-11-01

    Unlike classical bifurcations, border-collision bifurcations occur when, for example, a fixed point of a continuous, piecewise C1 map crosses a boundary in state space. Although classical bifurcations have been much studied, border-collision bifurcations are not well understood. This paper considers a particular class of border-collision bifurcations, i.e., border-collision period-doubling bifurcations. We apply a subharmonic perturbation to the bifurcation parameter, which is also known as alternate pacing, and we investigate the response under such pacing near the original bifurcation point. The resulting behavior is characterized quantitatively by a gain, which is the ratio of the response amplitude to the applied perturbation amplitude. The gain in a border-collision period-doubling bifurcation has a qualitatively different dependence on parameters from that of a classical period-doubling bifurcation. Perhaps surprisingly, the differences are more readily apparent if the gain is plotted vs. the perturbation amplitude (with the bifurcation parameter fixed) than if plotted vs. the bifurcation parameter (with the perturbation amplitude fixed). When this observation is exploited, the gain under alternate pacing provides a useful experimental tool to identify a border-collision period-doubling bifurcation.

    2009-10-01

    Arterial occlusive disease at the level of the femoral bifurcation mostly occurs in combination with inflow and/or outflow lesions. Surgical endarterectomy of the femoral bifurcation is a well-proven low-risk and easy surgical intervention with known durable success, while, although proven to be safe, evidence is lacking about the durability of the endovascular approach. Based on the evidence at hand, the surgical approach should be recommended for the vast majority of patients and the endovascular approach should only be indicated as the first strategy in selected cases presenting with factors that might compromise the outcome of surgery in the groin. If feasible, the hybrid approach with endarterectomy at the level of the bifurcation and endovascular repair of the inflow and outflow lesions is preferred in patients with multilevel disease.

    We study the influence of noise in a prototypical thermoacoustic system, which represents a nonlinear self-excited bistable oscillator. We analyze the time series of unsteady pressure obtained from a horizontal Rijke tube and a mathematical model to identify the effect of noise. We report the occurrence of stochastic bifurcations in a thermoacoustic system by tracking the changes in the stationary amplitude distribution. We observe a complete suppression of a bistable zone in the presence of high intensity noise. We find that the complete suppression of the bistable zone corresponds to the nonexistence of phenomenological (P) bifurcations. This is a study in thermoacoustics to identify the parameter regimes pertinent to P bifurcation using the stationary amplitude distribution obtained by solving the Fokker-Planck equation.

  3. Crisis bifurcations in plane Poiseuille flow

    CERN Document Server

    Zammert, Stefan

    2015-01-01

    Direct numerical simulations of transitional plane Poiseuille flow in a mirror-symmetric subspace reveal several interior and exterior crisis bifurcations. They appear in the upper branch that emerges in a saddle-node bifurcation near $Re_{SN}=641$ and then undergoes several bifurcations into a chaotic attractor. Near $Re_{XC}=785.95$ the attractor collides with the lower-branch state and turns into a chaotic saddle in a exterior crisis, with a characteristic $(Re-Re_{XC})^{-\\delta}$ variation in lifetimes. For intermediate Reynolds numbers, the attractor undergoes several interior crises, in which new states appear and intermittent behavior can be observed. They contribute to increasing the complexity of the dynamics and to a more dense coverage of state space. The exterior crisis marks the onset of transient turbulence in this subspace of plane Poiseuille flow.

    2007-01-01

    Arterial bifurcations are places where blood flow may be disturbed and slow recirculation flow may occur.To reveal the correlation between local oxygen transfer and atherogenesis, a finite element method was employed to simulate the blood flow and the oxygen transfer in the human carotid artery bifurcation. Under steady-state flow conditions, the numerical simulation demonstrated a variation in local oxygen transfer at the bifurcation, showing that the convective condition in the disturbed flow region may produce uneven local oxygen transfer at the blood/wall interface.The disturbed blood flow with formation of slow eddies in the carotid sinus resulted in a depression in oxygen supply to the arterial wall at the entry of the sinus, which in turn may lead to an atherogenic response of the arterial wall, and contribute to the development of atherosclerotic stenosis there.

  5. A model for the nonautonomous Hopf bifurcation

    2015-07-01

    Inspired by an example of Grebogi et al (1984 Physica D 13 261-8), we study a class of model systems which exhibit the full two-step scenario for the nonautonomous Hopf bifurcation, as proposed by Arnold (1998 Random Dynamical Systems (Berlin: Springer)). The specific structure of these models allows a rigorous and thorough analysis of the bifurcation pattern. In particular, we show the existence of an invariant ‘generalised torus’ splitting off a previously stable central manifold after the second bifurcation point. The scenario is described in two different settings. First, we consider deterministically forced models, which can be treated as continuous skew product systems on a compact product space. Secondly, we treat randomly forced systems, which lead to skew products over a measure-preserving base transformation. In the random case, a semiuniform ergodic theorem for random dynamical systems is required, to make up for the lack of compactness.

    2016-01-01

    In many non-linear systems, such as plasma oscillation, boson condensation, chemical reaction, and even predatory-prey oscillation, the coarse-grained dynamics are governed by an equation containing anti-symmetric transitions, known as the anti-symmetric Lotka-Volterra (ALV) equations. In this work, we prove the existence of a novel bifurcation mechanism for the ALV equations, where the equilibrium state can be drastically changed by flipping the stability of a pair of fixed points. As an application, we focus on the implications of the bifurcation mechanism for evolutionary networks; we found that the bifurcation point can be determined quantitatively by the quantum entanglement in the microscopic interactions. The equilibrium state can be critically changed from one type of global demographic condensation to another state that supports global cooperation for homogeneous networks. In other words, our results indicate that there exist a class of many-body systems where the macroscopic properties are, to some ...

    Full Text Available Congenital pseudoarthrosis of clavicle is a rare clinical entity. It usually presents as a swelling in the clavicular region at birth or soon after birth. Fitzwilliam′s original description of 60 subtypes of congenital pseudoarthrosis of clavicle have addressed several anatomical variants, e.g. association with cervical rib and abnormally vertical and elevated upper ribs. However, congenital pseudoarthrosis of clavicle associated with bifurcation is an atypical anatomic variant. To the best of our knowledge, this variant has never been mentioned in the literature. In the present report, we have described this subtype of symptomatic congenital pseudoarthrosis of the clavicle with bifurcation and its possible management.

    @@ Bifurcation behaviour of a nonlinear wave system is studied by utilizing the data in solving the nonlinear wave equation. By shifting to the steady wave frame and taking into account the Doppler effect, the nonlinear wave can be transformed into a set of coupled oscillators with its (stable or unstable) steady wave as the fixed point.It is found that in the chosen parameter regime, both mode amplitudes and phases of the wave can bifurcate to limit cycles attributed to the Hopf instability. It is emphasized that the investigation is carried out in a pure nonlinear wave framework, and the method can be used for the further exploring routes to turbulence.

    In this paper we study quasiperiodically forced systems exhibiting fractal and Wada basin boundaries. Specifically, by utilizing a class of representative systems, we analyze the dynamical origin of such basin boundaries and we characterize them. Furthermore, we find that basin boundaries in a quasiperiodically driven system can undergo a unique type of bifurcation in which isolated {open_quotes}islands{close_quotes} of basins of attraction are created as a system parameter changes. The mechanism for this type of basin boundary bifurcation is elucidated. {copyright} {ital 1998} {ital The American Physical Society}

    We investigate the nature of the dynamo bifurcation in a configuration applicable to the Earth's liquid outer core, i.e. in a rotating spherical shell with thermally driven motions. We show that the nature of the bifurcation, which can be either supercritical or subcritical or even take the form of isola (or detached lobes) strongly depends on the parameters. This dependence is described in a range of parameters numerically accessible (which unfortunately remains remote from geophysical application), and we show how the magnetic Prandtl number and the Ekman number control these transitions.

    Banerjee, S; Banerjee, Soumitro; Grebogi, Celso

    1999-01-01

    Recent investigations on the bifurcations in switching circuits have shown that many atypical bifurcations can occur in piecewise smooth maps which can not be classified among the generic cases like saddle-node, pitchfork or Hopf bifurcations occurring in smooth maps. In this paper we first present experimental results to establish the theoretical problem: the development of a theory and classification of the new type of bifurcations resulting from border collision. We then present a systematic analysis of such bifurcations by deriving a normal form --- the piecewise linear approximation in the neighborhood of the border. We show that there can be eleven qualitatively different types of border collision bifurcations depending on the parameters of the normal form, and these are classified under six cases. We present a partitioning of the parameter space of the normal form showing the regions where different types of bifurcations occur. This theoretical framework will help in explaining bifurcations in all syst...

  15. Electron-Dominated Spontaneous Bifurcation of Harris Equilibrium

    CERN Document Server

    Lee, Kuang-Wu

    2012-01-01

    In this letter the spontaneous bifurcation of Harris equilibrium current sheet is reported. The collisionless current bifurcation is simulated by a 2D particle-in-cell approach. Explicit particle advancing method is used to resolve the transient electron dynamics. Unlike previous implicit investigations no initial perturbations is applied to trigger current bifurcation. Instead, an electron-dominated spontaneously bifurcation is observed. Electromagnetic fluctuations grow from thermal noise initially. Soon the noise triggers the eigenmodes and eventually causes current sheet bifurcation. The relative entropy of the bifurcated state exceeds the value of initial Harris equilibrium. It is also found that the Helmholtz free energy decreases in the bifurcation process. Hence it is concluded that Harris equilibrium evolves toward a more stable (smaller free energy) bifurcated state.

  4. Bifurcation Diagrams and Generalized Bifurcation Diagrams for a rotational model of an oblate satellite

    CERN Document Server

    Tarnopolski, Mariusz

    2013-01-01

    This paper presents bifurcation and generalized bifurcation diagrams for a rotational model of an oblate satellite. Special attention is paid to parameter values describing one of Saturn's moons, Hyperion. For various oblateness the largest Lyapunov Characteristic Exponent (LCE) is plotted. The largest LCE in the initial condition as well as in the mixed parameter-initial condition space exhibits a fractal structure, for which the fractal dimension was calculated. It results from the bifurcation diagrams of which most of the parameter values for preselected initial conditions lead to chaotic rotation. The First Recurrence Time (FRT) diagram provides an explanation of the birth of chaos and the existence of quasi-periodic windows occuring in the bifurcation diagrams.

When the unipotent tangent space is invariant under unipotent equivalences, the recognition problem can be solved by just using linear algebra. Sufficient conditions for a subspace to be intrinsic subspace under unipotent equivalences are given.

    Torus bifurcation is a relatively complicated bifurcation caused by a pair of complex conjuployed to reveal the relationship between torus bifurcation and some complex dynamics.Based on theoretical analysis and simulation studies, it is found that torus bifurcation is a typical route to chaos in power system.Some complex dynamics usually occur after a torus bifurcation, such as self-organization, deep bifurcations, exquisite structure, coexistence of chaos and divergence.It is also found that chaos has close relationship with various instability scenarios of power systems.Studies of this paper are helpful to understand the mechanism of torus bifurcation in power system and relationship of chaos and power system instabilities.

    2013-08-01

    In this paper we completely study bifurcations of an epidemic model with five parameters introduced by Hilker et al. (Am Nat 173:72-88, 2009), which describes the joint interplay of a strong Allee effect and infectious diseases in a single population. Existence of multiple positive equilibria and all kinds of bifurcation are examined as well as related dynamical behavior. It is shown that the model undergoes a series of bifurcations such as saddle-node bifurcation, pitchfork bifurcation, Bogdanov-Takens bifurcation, degenerate Hopf bifurcation of codimension two and degenerate elliptic type Bogdanov-Takens bifurcation of codimension three. Respective bifurcation surfaces in five-dimensional parameter spaces and related dynamical behavior are obtained. These theoretical conclusions confirm their numerical simulations and conjectures by Hilker et al., and reveal some new bifurcation phenomena which are not observed in Hilker et al. (Am Nat 173:72-88, 2009). The rich and complicated dynamics exhibit that the model is very sensitive to parameter perturbations, which has important implications for disease control of endangered species.

    A three-degree-of-freedom vibro-bounce system is considered. The disturbed map of period one single-impact motion is derived analytically. A center manifold theorem dimensional one, and the normal form map associated with Hopf-flip bifurcation is obtained. Dynamical behavior of the system, near the point of codimension two bifurcation, is investigated by using qualitative analysis and numerical simulation. It is found that near the point of Hopf-flip bifurcation there exists not only Hopf bifurcation of period one singleimpact motion, but also Hopf bifurcation of period two double-impact motion. The results from simulation show that there exists an interesting torus doubling bifurcation near the codimension two bifurcation. The torus doubling bifurcation makes the quasi-periodic attractor associated with period one single-impact motion transform to the other quasi-periodic attractor represented by two attracting closed circles. The torus bifurcation is qualitatively different from the typical torus doubling bifurcation occurring in the vibro-impact systems. Different routes from period one single-impact motion to chaos are observed by numerical simulation.

    By using different recent state-of-the-art numerical techniques, such as the OFLI2 chaos indicator and a systematic search of symmetric periodic orbits, we get an insight into the dynamics of open Hamiltonians. We have found that this kind of system has safe bounded regular regions inside the escape region that have significant size and that can be located with precision. Therefore, it is possible to find regions of nonzero measure with stable periodic or quasi-periodic orbits far from the last KAM tori and far from the escape energy. This finding has been possible after a careful combination of a precise 'skeleton' of periodic orbits and a 2D plate of the OFLI2 chaos indicator to locate saddle-node bifurcations and the regular regions near them. Besides, these two techniques permit one to classify the different kinds of orbits that appear in Hamiltonian systems with escapes and provide information about the bifurcations of the families of periodic orbits, obtaining special cases of bifurcations for the different symmetries of the systems. Moreover, the skeleton of periodic orbits also gives the organizing set of the escape basin's geometry. As a paradigmatic example, we study in detail the Henon-Heiles Hamiltonian, and more briefly the Barbanis potential and a galactic Hamiltonian.

    2003-01-01

    The configuration of parallel mechanisms at the singularity position is uncertain. How to control the mechanism through the singularity position with a given configuration is one of the key problems of the robot controlling. In this paper the bifurcation property and persistence of configurations at the singularity position is investigated for 3-DOF parallel mechanisms. The dimension of the bifurcation equations is reduced by Liapunov-Schmidt reduction method. According to the strong equivalence condition, the normal form which is consistent with the bifurcation condition of the original equation is selected. Through universal unfolding of the bifurcation equation, the influences of the disturbance factors, such as the influence of length of the input component on the configuration persistence at the bifurcation position, are analyzed. Using this method we can obtain the bifurcation curve in which the configuration will be held when the mechanism passes through the singularity position. Therefore, the configuration is under control in this way.

  5. Simplest Normal Forms of Generalized Neimark-Sacker Bifurcation

    2009-01-01

    The normal forms of generalized Neimark-Sacker bifurcation are extensively studied using normal form theory of dynamic system. It is well known that if the normal forms of the generalized Neimark-Sacker bifurcation are expressed in polar coordinates, then all odd order terms must, in general, remain in the normal forms. In this paper, five theorems are presented to show that the conventional Neimark-Sacker bifurcation can be further simpli-fied. The simplest normal forms of generalized Neimark-Sacker bifurcation are calculated. Based on the conven-tional normal form, using appropriate nonlinear transformations, it is found that the generalized Neimark-Sacker bifurcation has at most two nonlinear terms remaining in the amplitude equations of the simplest normal forms up to any order. There are two kinds of simplest normal forms. Their algebraic expression formulas of the simplest nor-mal forms in terms of the coefficients of the generalized Neimark-Sacker bifurcation systems are given.

    One- and two-dimensional bifurcation studies of a prototypic model of bursting oscillations in pancreatic P-cells reveal a squid-formed area of chaotic dynamics in the parameter plane, with period-doubling bifurcations on one side of the arms and saddle-node bifurcations on the other....... The transition from this structure to the so-called period-adding structure is found to involve a subcritical period-doubling bifurcation and the emergence of type-III intermittency. The period-adding transition itself is not smooth but consists of a saddle-node bifurcation in which (n + 1)-spike bursting...... behavior is born, slightly overlapping with a subcritical period-doubling bifurcation in which n-spike bursting behavior loses its stability....

  7. Defining universality classes for three different local bifurcations

    Science.gov (United States)

    Leonel, Edson D.

    2016-10-01

    The convergence to the fixed point at a bifurcation and near it is characterized via scaling formalism for three different types of local bifurcations of fixed points in differential equations, namely: (i) saddle-node; (ii) transcritical; and (iii) supercritical pitchfork. At the bifurcation, the convergence is described by a homogeneous function with three critical exponents α, β and z. A scaling law is derived hence relating the three exponents. Near the bifurcation the evolution towards the fixed point is given by an exponential function whose relaxation time is marked by a power law of the distance of the bifurcation point with an exponent δ. The four exponents α, β, z and δ can be used to defined classes of universality for the local bifurcations of fixed points in differential equations.

    Full Text Available In a recent paper by J. Ren et al. (2012, a novel computer virus propagation model under the effect of the antivirus ability in a real network is established. The analysis there only partially uncovers the dynamics behaviors of virus spread over the network in the case where around bifurcation is local. In the present paper, by mathematical analysis, it is further shown that, under appropriate parameter values, the model may undergo a global B-T bifurcation, and the curves of saddle-node bifurcation, Hopf bifurcation, and homoclinic bifurcation are obtained to illustrate the qualitative behaviors of virus propagation. On this basis, a collection of policies is recommended to prohibit the virus prevalence. To our knowledge, this is the first time the global bifurcation has been explored for the computer virus propagation. Theoretical results and corresponding suggestions may help us suppress or eliminate virus propagation in the network.

    Hair bundles are biological oscillators that actively transduce mechanical stimuli into electrical signals in the auditory, vestibular, and lateral-line systems of vertebrates. A bundle's function can be explained in part by its operation near a particular type of bifurcation, a qualitative change in behavior. By operating near different varieties of bifurcation, the bundle responds best to disparate classes of stimuli. We show how to determine the identity of and proximity to distinct bifurcations despite the presence of substantial environmental noise.

    The paper presents a detailed bifurcation analysis of two symmetrically coupled Rössler systems. The symmetry in the coupling does not allow any one direction to become preferred, and the coupled system is therefore an example of a dissipative system that cannot be considered as effectively one......-dimensional. The results are presented in terms of one- and two-parmeter bifurcation diagrams. A particularly interesting finding is the replacement of some of the period-doubling bifurcations by torus bifurcations. By virtue of this replacement, instead of a Feigenbaum transition to chaos a transition via torus...

    The Hopf bifurcation for the Brusselator ordinary-differential-equation (ODE)model and the corresponding partial-differential-equation(PDE)model are investigated by using the Hopf bifurcation theorem.The stability of the Hopf bifurcation periodic solution is di8cu88ed by applying the normal form theory and the center manifold theorem.When parameters satisfy some conditions,the spatial homogenous equilibrium solution and the spatial homogenous periodic solution become unstable.Our results show that if parameters are properly chosen,Hopf bifurcation does not occur for the ODE system,but occurs for the PDE system.

    We report on the experimental investigation of gluing bifurcations in the analog electronic circuit which models a dynamical system of the third order: Lorenz equations with an additional quadratic nonlinearity. Variation of one of the resistances in the circuit changes the coefficient at this nonlinearity and replaces the Lorenz route to chaos by a different scenario which leads, through the sequence of homoclinic bifurcations, from periodic oscillations of the voltage to the irregular ones. Every single bifurcation “glues” in the phase space two stable periodic orbits and creates a new one, with the doubled length: a sequence of such bifurcations results in the birth of the chaotic attractor.

    Full Text Available In this article, a immune response system with delay is considered, which consists of two-dimensional nonlinear differential equations. The main purpose of this paper is to explore the Hopf bifurcation of a immune response system with delay.

Especially, the conditions of the global existence of periodic solutions bifurcating from Hopf bifurcations are given. Numerical simulations are carried out to illustrate the the theoretical analysis and the obtained results.

    The static bifurcation of the parametrically excited strongly nonlinear oscillator is studied.We consider the averaged equations of a system subject to Duffing-van der Pol and quintic strong nonlinearity by introducing the undetermined fundamental frequency into the computation in the complex normal form.To discuss the static bifurcation,the bifurcation problem is described as a 3-codimensional unfolding with Z2 symmetry on the basis of singularity theory.The transition set and bifurcation diagrams for the singularity are presented,while the stability of the zero solution is studied by using the eigenvalues in various parameter regions.

    Exploiting the nonlinear dynamics in the negative feedback loop, we propose a statistical signal-response model to describe the different oscillatory behaviour in a biological network motif. By choosing the delay as a bifurcation parameter, we discuss the existence of Hopf bifurcation and the stability of the periodic solutions of model equations with the centre manifold theorem and the normal form theory. It is shown that a periodic solution is born in a Hopf bifurcation beyond a critical time delay, and thus the bifurcation phenomenon may be important to elucidate the mechanism of oscillatory activities in regulatory biological networks.

    We unfold the bifurcation involving the loss of evolutionary stability of an equilibrium of the canonical equation of Adaptive Dynamics (AD). The equation deterministically describes the expected long-term evolution of inheritable traits — phenotypes or strategies — of coevolving populations, in the limit of rare and small mutations. In the vicinity of a stable equilibrium of the AD canonical equation, a mutant type can invade and coexist with the present — resident — types, whereas the fittest always win far from equilibrium. After coexistence, residents and mutants effectively diversify, according to the enlarged canonical equation, only if natural selection favors outer rather than intermediate traits — the equilibrium being evolutionarily unstable, rather than stable. Though the conditions for evolutionary branching — the joint effect of resident-mutant coexistence and evolutionary instability — have been known for long, the unfolding of the bifurcation has remained a missing tile of AD, the reason being related to the nonsmoothness of the mutant invasion fitness after branching. In this paper, we develop a methodology that allows the approximation of the invasion fitness after branching in terms of the expansion of the (smooth) fitness before branching. We then derive a canonical model for the branching bifurcation and perform its unfolding around the loss of evolutionary stability. We cast our analysis in the simplest (but classical) setting of asexual, unstructured populations living in an isolated, homogeneous, and constant abiotic environment; individual traits are one-dimensional; intra- as well as inter-specific ecological interactions are described in the vicinity of a stationary regime.

    The Visible Heart® Laboratory is an original experimental laboratory in which harvested animal hearts are resuscitated and connected to a support machine in order to beat outside the animal body. Resuscitated animal hearts may be exposed to various types of endovascular intervention under full, multimodality inspection. This unique experimental setting allows the performance of percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) in a setting which resembles a standard catheterisation laboratory set-up, and contemporaneously allows unique multimodality imaging. For these reasons, the performance of PCI on bifurcations in the Visible Heart® Laboratory may improve the knowledge of the dynamic stent deformations and stent-vessel wall interactions associated with the different steps of the various techniques for bifurcation stenting. Furthermore, the collected images may also serve as a novel educative resource for physicians. The performance of bifurcation stenting in the Visible Heart® Laboratory is a promising experimental setting to gain novel information regarding any existing or future PCI technique to treat coronary bifurcations.

    The 3-D spiral structure resulting from the balance between the pressure gradient force, Coriolis force, and viscous force is a common atmospheric motion pattern. If the nonlinear advective terms are considered, this typical pattern can be bifurcated. It is shown that the surface low pressure with convergent cyclonic vorticity and surface high pressure with divergent anticyclonic vorticity are all stable under certain conditions. The anomalous structure with convergent anticyclonic vorticity is always unstable. But the anomalous weak high pressure structure with convergent cyclonic vorticity can exist, and this denotes the cyclone's dying out.

    We report our experimental observations of the Shil’nikov-type homoclinic chaos in asymmetry-induced Chua’s oscillator. The asymmetry plays a crucial role in the related homoclinic bifurcations. The asymmetry is introduced in the circuit by forcing a DC voltage. For a selected asymmetry, when a system parameter is controlled, we observed transition from large amplitude limit cycle to homoclinic chaos via a sequence of periodic mixed-mode oscillations interspersed by chaotic states. Moreover, we observed two intermediate bursting regimes. Experimental evidences of homoclinic chaos are verified with PSPICE simulations.

    2004-01-01

    @@ A period-adding bursting sequence without bursting-chaos in the Chay neuron model is studied by bifurcation analysis. The genesis of each periodic bursting is separately evoked by the corresponding periodic spiking patterns through two period-doubling bifurcations, except for the period-1 bursting occurring via Hopf bifurcation. Hence,it is concluded that this period-adding bursting bifurcation without chaos has a compound bifurcation structure closely related to period-doubling bifurcations of periodic spiking in essence.

    Partitioning of red blood cells (RBCs) at the level of bifurcations in the microcirculatory system affects many physiological functions yet it remains poorly understood. We address this problem by using T-shaped microfluidic bifurcations as a model. Our computer simulations and in vitro experiments reveal that the hematocrit (ϕ0) partition depends strongly on RBC deformability, as long as ϕ0<20% (within the normal range in microcirculation), and can even lead to complete deprivation of RBCs in a child branch. Furthermore, we discover a deviation from the Zweifach-Fung effect which states that the child branch with lower flow rate recruits less RBCs than the higher flow rate child branch. At small enough ϕ0, we get the inverse scenario, and the hematocrit in the lower flow rate child branch is even higher than in the parent vessel. We explain this result by an intricate up-stream RBC organization and we highlight the extreme dependence of RBC transport on geometrical and cell mechanical properties. These parameters can lead to unexpected behaviors with consequences on the microcirculatory function and oxygen delivery in healthy and pathological conditions.

  13. Ecological public goods games: cooperation and bifurcation.

    The Public Goods Game is one of the most popular models for studying the origin and maintenance of cooperation. In its simplest form, this evolutionary game has two regimes: defection goes to fixation if the multiplication factor r is smaller than the interaction group size N, whereas cooperation goes to fixation if the multiplication factor r is larger than the interaction group size N. Hauert et al. [Hauert, C., Holmes, M., Doebeli, M., 2006a. Evolutionary games and population dynamics: Maintenance of cooperation in public goods games. Proc. R. Soc. Lond. B 273, 2565-2570] have introduced the Ecological Public Goods Game by viewing the payoffs from the evolutionary game as birth rates in a population dynamic model. This results in a feedback between ecological and evolutionary dynamics: if defectors are prevalent, birth rates are low and population densities decline, which leads to smaller interaction groups for the Public Goods game, and hence to dominance of cooperators, with a concomitant increase in birth rates and population densities. This feedback can lead to stable co-existence between cooperators and defectors. Here we provide a detailed analysis of the dynamics of the Ecological Public Goods Game, showing that the model exhibits various types of bifurcations, including supercritical Hopf bifurcations, which result in stable limit cycles, and hence in oscillatory co-existence of cooperators and defectors. These results show that including population dynamics in evolutionary games can have important consequences for the evolutionary dynamics of cooperation.

    Hair bundles are biological oscillators that actively transduce mechanical stimuli into electrical signals in the auditory, vestibular, and lateral-line systems of vertebrates. A bundle's function can be explained in part by its operation near a particular type of bifurcation, a qualitative change in behavior. By operating near different varieties of bifurcation, the bundle responds best to disparate classes of stimuli. We show how to determine the identity of and proximity to distinct bifurcations despite the presence of substantial environmental noise. Using an improved mechanical-load clamp to coerce a hair bundle to traverse different bifurcations, we find that a bundle operates within at least two functional regimes. When coupled to a high-stiffness load, a bundle functions near a supercritical Hopf bifurcation, in which case it responds best to sinusoidal stimuli such as those detected by an auditory organ. When the load stiffness is low, a bundle instead resides close to a subcritical Hopf bifurcation and achieves a graded frequency response-a continuous change in the rate, but not the amplitude, of spiking in response to changes in the offset force-a behavior that is useful in a vestibular organ. The mechanical load in vivo might therefore control a hair bundle's responsiveness for effective operation in a particular receptor organ. Our results provide direct experimental evidence for the existence of distinct bifurcations associated with a noisy biological oscillator, and demonstrate a general strategy for bifurcation analysis based on observations of any noisy system.

    An SMIB model in the power systems,especially that concering the effects of hard limits on bifurcations, chaos and stability is studied.Parameter conditions for bifurcations and chaos in the absence of hard limits are compared with those in the presence of hard limits.It has been proved that hard limits can affect system stability.We find that (1)hard limits can change unstable equilibrium into stable one;(2)hard limits can change stability of limit cycles induced by Hopf bifurcation;(3)persistence of hard limits can stabilize divergent trajectory to a stable equilibrium or limit cycle;(4)Hopf bifurcation occurs before SN bifurcation,so the system collapse can be controlled before Hopf bifurcation occurs.We also find that suitable limiting values of hard limits can enlarge the feasibility region.These results are based on theoretical analysis and numerical simulations, such as condition for SNB and Hopf bifurcation,bifurcation diagram,trajectories,Lyapunov exponent,Floquet multipliers,dimension of attractor and so on.

  8. Analysis of Vehicle Steering and Driving Bifurcation Characteristics

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Xianbin Wang

    2015-01-01

    Full Text Available The typical method of vehicle steering bifurcation analysis is based on the nonlinear autonomous vehicle model deriving from the classic two degrees of freedom (2DOF linear vehicle model. This method usually neglects the driving effect on steering bifurcation characteristics. However, in the steering and driving combined conditions, the tyre under different driving conditions can provide different lateral force. The steering bifurcation mechanism without the driving effect is not able to fully reveal the vehicle steering and driving bifurcation characteristics. Aiming at the aforementioned problem, this paper analyzed the vehicle steering and driving bifurcation characteristics with the consideration of driving effect. Based on the 5DOF vehicle system dynamics model with the consideration of driving effect, the 7DOF autonomous system model was established. The vehicle steering and driving bifurcation dynamic characteristics were analyzed with different driving mode and driving torque. Taking the front-wheel-drive system as an example, the dynamic evolution process of steering and driving bifurcation was analyzed by phase space, system state variables, power spectral density, and Lyapunov index. The numerical recognition results of chaos were also provided. The research results show that the driving mode and driving torque have the obvious effect on steering and driving bifurcation characteristics.

  9. Bifurcation behaviours of peak current controlled PFC boost converter

    2005-01-01

    Bifurcation behaviours of the peak current controlled power-factor-correction (PFC) boost converter, including fast-scale instability and low-frequency bifurcation, are investigated in this paper. Conventionally, the PFC converter is analysed in continuous conduction mode (CCM). This prevents us from recognizing the overall dynamics of the converter. It has been pointed out that the discontinuous conduction mode (DCM) can occur in the PFC boost converter, especially in the light load condition. Therefore, the DCM model is employed to analyse the PFC converter to cover the possible DCM operation. By this way, the low-frequency bifurcation diagram is derived, which makes the route from period-double bifurcation to chaos clear. The bifurcation diagrams versus the load resistance and the output capacitance also indicate the stable operation boundary of the converter, which is useful for converter design.

    2013-04-01

    A universal description of the effects of additive noise on super- and subcritical spatial bifurcations in one-dimensional systems is theoretically, numerically, and experimentally studied. The probability density of the critical spatial mode amplitude is derived. From this generalized Rayleigh distribution we predict the shape of noisy bifurcations by means of the most probable value of the critical mode amplitude. Comparisons with numerical simulations are in quite good agreement for cubic or quintic amplitude equations accounting for stochastic supercritical bifurcation and for cubic-quintic amplitude equation accounting for stochastic subcritical bifurcation. Experimental results obtained in a one-dimensional Kerr-like slice subjected to optical feedback confirm the analytical expression prediction for the supercritical bifurcation shape.

    2016-06-01

    We discuss the transition paths in a coupled bistable system consisting of interacting multiple identical bistable motifs. We propose a simple model of coupled bistable gene circuits as an example and show that its transition paths are bifurcating. We then derive a criterion to predict the bifurcation of transition paths in a generalized coupled bistable system. We confirm the validity of the theory for the example system by numerical simulation. We also demonstrate in the example system that, if the steady states of individual gene circuits are not changed by the coupling, the bifurcation pattern is not dependent on the number of gene circuits. We further show that the transition rate exponentially decreases with the number of gene circuits when the transition path does not bifurcate, while a bifurcation facilitates the transition by lowering the quasi-potential energy barrier.

  12. Critical bifurcation surfaces of 3D discrete dynamics

    2000-01-01

    Full Text Available This paper deals with the analytical representation of bifurcations of each 3D discrete dynamics depending on the set of bifurcation parameters. The procedure of bifurcation analysis proposed in this paper represents the 3D elaboration and specification of the general algorithm of the n-dimensional linear bifurcation analysis proposed by the author earlier. It is proven that 3D domain of asymptotic stability (attraction of the fixed point for a given 3D discrete dynamics is bounded by three critical bifurcation surfaces: the divergence, flip and flutter surfaces. The analytical construction of these surfaces is achieved with the help of classical Routh–Hurvitz conditions of asymptotic stability. As an application the adjustment process proposed by T. Puu for the Cournot oligopoly model is considered in detail.

    2015-09-01

    Full Text Available In this work our focus is on streamlines patterns and their bifurcations for mixed convective peristaltic flow of Newtonian fluid with heat transfer. The flow is considered in a two dimensional symmetric channel and the governing equations are simplified under widely taken assumptions of large wavelength and low Reynolds number in a wave frame of reference. In order to study the streamlines patterns, a system of nonlinear autonomous differential equations are established and dynamical systems approach is used to discuss the local bifurcations and their topological changes. We have discussed all types of bifurcations and their topological changes are presented graphically. We found that the vortices contract along the vertical direction whereas they expand along horizontal direction. A global bifurcations diagram is used to summarize the bifurcations. The trapping and backward flow regions are mainly affected by increasing Grashof number and constant heat source parameter in such a way that trapping region increases whereas backward flow region shrinks.

    2004-01-01

    A single-axis ux decay model including an excitation control model proposed in [12,14,16] is studied. As the bifurcation parameter P m (input power to the generator) varies, the system exhibits dynamics emerging from static and dynamic bifurcations which link with system collapse. We show that the equilibrium point of the system undergoes three bifurcations: one saddle-node bifurcation and two Hopf bifurcations. The state variables dominating system collapse are different for different critical points, and the excitative control may play an important role in delaying system from collapsing. Simulations are presented to illustrate the dynamical behavior associated with the power system stability and collapse. Moreover, by computing the local quadratic approximation of the 5-dimensional stable manifold at an order 5 saddle point, an analytical expression for the approximate stability boundary is worked out.

  15. Ecological consequences of global bifurcations in some food chain models.

    2010-08-01

    Food chain models of ordinary differential equations (ode's) are often used in ecology to gain insight in the dynamics of populations of species, and the interactions of these species with each other and their environment. One powerful analysis technique is bifurcation analysis, focusing on the changes in long-term (asymptotic) behaviour under parameter variation. For the detection of local bifurcations there exists standardised software, but until quite recently most software did not include any capabilities for the detection and continuation of global bifurcations. We focus here on the occurrence of global bifurcations in four food chain models, and discuss the implications of their occurrence. In two stoichiometric models (one piecewise continuous, one smooth) there exists a homoclinic bifurcation, that results in the disappearance of a limit cycle attractor. Instead, a stable positive equilibrium becomes the global attractor. The models are also capable of bistability. In two three-dimensional models a Shil'nikov homoclinic bifurcation functions as the organising centre of chaos, while tangencies of homoclinic cycle-to-cycle connections 'cut' the chaotic attractors, which is associated with boundary crises. In one model this leads to extinction of the top predator, while in the other model hysteresis occurs. The types of ecological events occurring because of a global bifurcation will be categorized. Global bifurcations are always catastrophic, leading to the disappearance or merging of attractors. However, there is no 1-on-1 coupling between global bifurcation type and the possible ecological consequences. This only emphasizes the importance of including global bifurcations in the analysis of food chain models.

  16. Climate bifurcation during the last deglaciation?

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    T. M. Lenton

    2012-07-01

    Full Text Available There were two abrupt warming events during the last deglaciation, at the start of the Bølling-Allerød and at the end of the Younger Dryas, but their underlying dynamics are unclear. Some abrupt climate changes may involve gradual forcing past a bifurcation point, in which a prevailing climate state loses its stability and the climate tips into an alternative state, providing an early warning signal in the form of slowing responses to perturbations, which may be accompanied by increasing variability. Alternatively, short-term stochastic variability in the climate system can trigger abrupt climate changes, without early warning. Previous work has found signals consistent with slowing down during the last deglaciation as a whole, and during the Younger Dryas, but with conflicting results in the run-up to the Bølling-Allerød. Based on this, we hypothesise that a bifurcation point was approached at the end of the Younger Dryas, in which the cold climate state, with weak Atlantic overturning circulation, lost its stability, and the climate tipped irreversibly into a warm interglacial state. To test the bifurcation hypothesis, we analysed two different climate proxies in three Greenland ice cores, from the Last Glacial Maximum to the end of the Younger Dryas. Prior to the Bølling warming, there was a robust increase in climate variability but no consistent slowing down signal, suggesting this abrupt change was probably triggered by a stochastic fluctuation. The transition to the warm Bølling-Allerød state was accompanied by a slowing down in climate dynamics and an increase in climate variability. We suggest that the Bølling warming excited an internal mode of variability in Atlantic meridional overturning circulation strength, causing multi-centennial climate fluctuations. However, the return to the Younger Dryas cold state increased climate stability. We find no consistent evidence for slowing down during the Younger Dryas, or in a longer

    Full Text Available This work evaluates the performance of a novel design for a bifurcated submerged entry nozzle (SEN used for the continuous casting of steel slabs. The proposed design incorporates fluid flow conditioners attached on SEN external wall. The fluid flow conditioners impose a pseudosymmetric pattern in the upper zone of the mold by inhibiting the fluid exchange between the zones created by conditioners. The performance of the SEN with fluid flow conditioners is analyzed through numerical simulations using the CFD technique. Numerical results were validated by means of physical simulations conducted on a scaled cold water model. Numerical and physical simulations confirmed that the performance of the proposed SEN is superior to a traditional one. Fluid flow conditioners reduce the liquid free surface fluctuations and minimize the occurrence of vortexes at the free surface.

    This project consists of experimental investigations of heat transport, pattern formation, and bifurcation phenomena in non-linear non-equilibrium fluid-mechanical systems. These issues are studies in Rayleigh-B\\'enard convection, using both pure and multicomponent fluids. They are of fundamental scientific interest, but also play an important role in engineering, materials science, ecology, meteorology, geophysics, and astrophysics. For instance, various forms of convection are important in such diverse phenomena as crystal growth from a melt with or without impurities, energy production in solar ponds, flow in the earth's mantle and outer core, geo-thermal stratifications, and various oceanographic and atmospheric phenomena. Our work utilizes computer-enhanced shadowgraph imaging of flow patterns, sophisticated digital image analysis, and high-resolution heat transport measurements.

  19. Transport Bifurcation in Plasma Interchange Turbulence

    Science.gov (United States)

    Li, Bo

    2016-10-01

    Transport bifurcation and mean shear flow generation in plasma interchange turbulence are explored with self-consistent two-fluid simulations in a flux-driven system with both closed and open field line regions. The nonlinear evolution of interchange modes shows the presence of two confinement regimes characterized by the low and high mean flow shear. By increasing the input heat flux above a certain threshold, large-amplitude oscillations in the turbulent and mean flow energy are induced. Both clockwise and counter-clockwise types of oscillations are found before the transition to the second regime. The fluctuation energy is decisively transferred to the mean flows by large-amplitude Reynolds power as turbulent intensity increases. Consequently, a transition to the second regime occurs, in which strong mean shear flows are generated in the plasma edge. The peak of the spectrum shifts to higher wavenumbers as the large-scale turbulent eddies are suppressed by the mean shear flow. The transition back to the first regime is then triggered by decreasing the input heat flux to a level much lower than the threshold for the forward transition, showing strong hysteresis. During the back transition, the mean flow decreases as the energy transfer process is reversed. This transport bifurcation, based on a field-line-averaged 2D model, has also been reproduced in our recent 3D simulations of resistive interchange turbulence, in which the ion and electron temperatures are separated and the parallel current is involved.

  20. Bifurcation diagrams in relation to synchronization in chaotic systems

    2010-06-01

    We numerically study some of the three-dimensional dynamical systems which exhibit complete synchronization as well as generalized synchronization to show that these systems can be conveniently partitioned into equivalent classes facilitating the study of bifurcation diagrams within each class. We demonstrate how bifurcation diagrams may be helpful in predicting the nature of the driven system by knowing the bifurcation diagram of driving system and vice versa. The study is extended to include the possible generalized synchronization between elements of two different equivalent classes by taking the Rössler-driven-Lorenz-system as an example.

    2007-01-01

    In the present paper, synchronization and bifurcation of general complex dynamical networks are investigated. We mainly focus on networks with a somewhat general coupling matrix, i.e., the sum of each row equals a nonzero constant u. We derive a result that the networks can reach a new synchronous state, which is not the asymptotic limit set determined by the node equation. At the synchronous state, the networks appear bifurcation if we regard the constant u as a bifurcation parameter. Numerical examples are given to illustrate our derived conclusions.

    2013-05-01

    We present a general method for systematically investigating the dynamics and bifurcations of a physical nonlinear experiment. In particular, we show how the odd-number limitation inherent in popular noninvasive control schemes, such as (Pyragas) time-delayed or washout-filtered feedback control, can be overcome for tracking equilibria or forced periodic orbits in experiments. To demonstrate the use of our noninvasive control, we trace out experimentally the resonance surface of a periodically forced mechanical nonlinear oscillator near the onset of instability, around two saddle-node bifurcations (folds) and a cusp bifurcation.

    We consider the bifurcation control for the forced Burgers-KdV equation by means of delay feedback linear terms. We use a perturbation method in order to find amplitude and phase modulation equations as well as external force-response and frequency-response curves. We observe in the resonance response a saddle-node bifurcation that leads to jump and hysteresis phenomena. We compare the uncontrolled and controlled systems and demonstrate that control terms can delay or remove the occurrence of the saddle-node bifurcation and reduce the amplitude peak of the resonant response.

    2014-04-01

    Full Text Available This article concerns the bifurcation of limit cycles for a quartic system with an isochronous center. By using the averaging theory, it shows that under any small quartic homogeneous perturbations, at most two limit cycles bifurcate from the period annulus of the considered system, and this upper bound can be reached. In addition, we study a family of perturbed isochronous systems and prove that there are at most three limit cycles bifurcating from the period annulus of the unperturbed one, and the upper bound is sharp.

    2002-01-01

    A parametrically excited oscillator with strong nonlinearity, including van der Poi and Duffing types, is studied for static bifurcations. The applicable range of the modified Lindstedt-Poincaré method is extended to 1/2 subharmonic resonance systems. The bifurcation equation of a strongly nonlinear oscillator, which is transformed into a small parameter system, is determined by the multiple scales method. On the basis of the singularity theory, the transition set and the bifurcation diagram in various regions of the parameter plane are analysed.

Both of these bands have moments of inertia that are identical to the yrast band of {sup 149}Gd, the first superdeformed band in which this bifurcation was observed. This first observation of {Delta}I=4 bifurcation in identical superdeformed bands provides a crucial test of recent models. {copyright} {ital 1997} {ital The American Physical Society}

  7. Multi-Stream Inflation: Bifurcations and Recombinations in the Multiverse

    CERN Document Server

    Wang, Yi

    2010-01-01

    In this Letter, we briefly review the multi-stream inflation scenario, and discuss its implications in the string theory landscape and the inflationary multiverse. In multi-stream inflation, the inflation trajectory encounters bifurcations. If these bifurcations are in the observable stage of inflation, then interesting observational effects can take place, such as domain fences, non-Gaussianities, features and asymmetries in the CMB. On the other hand, if the bifurcation takes place in the eternal stage of inflation, it provides an alternative creation mechanism of bubbles universes in eternal inflation, as well as a mechanism to locally terminate eternal inflation, which reduces the measure of eternal inflation.

    Full Text Available The dynamics of a ring of seven unidirectionally coupled nonlinear Duffing oscillators is studied. We show that the FFT analysis presented in form of a bifurcation graph, that is, frequency distribution versus a control parameter, can provide a valuable and helpful complement to the corresponding typical bifurcation diagram and the course of Lyapunov exponents, especially in context of detailed identification of the observed attractors. As an example, bifurcation analysis of routes to chaos via 2-frequency and 3-frequency quasiperiodicity is demonstrated.

    Seasonal variability of the bifurcation of the North Equatorial Current (NEC) is studied by constructing the analytic solution for the time-dependent horizontal linear shallow water quasi-geostrophic equations.Using the Florida State University wind data from 1961 through 1992,we find that the bifurcation latitude of the NEC changes with seasons.Furthermore,it is shown that the NEC bifurcation is at its southernmost latitude (12.7°N) in June and the northernmost latitude (14.4° N) in November.

    Institute of Scientific and Technical Information of China (English)

    2007-01-01

    In this paper, the stability and the Hopf bifurcation of small-world networks with time delay are studied. By analyzing the change of delay, we obtain several sufficient conditions on stable and unstable properties. When the delay passes a critical value, a Hopf bifurcation may appear. Furthermore, the direction and the stability of bifurcating periodic solutions are investigated by the normal form theory and the center manifold reduction. At last, by numerical simulations, we further illustrate the effectiveness of theorems in this paper.

    2014-01-01

    Understanding how sea ice melts is critical to climate projections. In the Arctic, melt ponds that develop on the surface of sea ice floes during the late spring and summer largely determine their albedo $-$ a key parameter in climate modeling. Here we explore the possibility of a simple sea ice climate model passing through a bifurcation point $-$ an irreversible critical threshold as the system warms, by incorporating geometric information about melt pond evolution. This study is based on a nonlinear phase transition model for melt ponds, and bifurcation analysis of a simple climate model with ice - albedo feedback as the key mechanism driving the system to a potential bifurcation point.

    2008-01-01

    The Hopf bifurcations of an airfoil flutter system with a cubic nonlinearity are investigated,with the flow speed as the bifurcation parameter.The center manifold theory and complex normal form method are used to obtain the bifurcation equation.Interestingly,for a certain linear pitching stiffness the Hopf bifurcation is both supercritical and subcritical.It is found,mathematically,this is caused by the fact that one coefficient in the bifurcation equation does not contain the first power of the bifurcation parameter.The solutions of the bifurcation equation are validated by the equivalent linearization method and incremental harmonic balance method.

    Based on the bifurcation theory in nonlinear dynamics, this paper analyzes quantitatively period solution dynamic characteristic. In particular, the ones of period1 and period2 solutions are deeply studied. From locus of Jacobian matrix eigenvalue, we conclude that the bifurcations between period1 and period2 solutions are pitchfork bifurcations while the bifurcations between period2 and period3 solutions are border collision bifurcations. The double period bifurcation condition is verified from complex plane locus of eigenvalues,furthermore, the necessary condition occurred pitchfork bifurcation is obtained from the cause of border collisionbifurcation.

    Zeng, Caibin; Yang, Qigui; Chen, YangQuan

    2016-08-01

    Tempered fractional processes offer a useful extension for turbulence to include low frequencies. In this paper, we investigate the stochastic phenomenological bifurcation, or stochastic P-bifurcation, of the Langevin equation perturbed by tempered fractional Brownian motion. However, most standard tools from the well-studied framework of random dynamical systems cannot be applied to systems driven by non-Markovian noise, so it is desirable to construct possible approaches in a non-Markovian framework. We first derive the spectral density function of the considered system based on the generalized Parseval's formula and the Wiener-Khinchin theorem. Then we show that it enjoys interesting and diverse bifurcation phenomena exchanging between or among explosive-like, unimodal, and bimodal kurtosis. Therefore, our procedures in this paper are not merely comparable in scope to the existing theory of Markovian systems but also provide a possible approach to discern P-bifurcation dynamics in the non-Markovian settings.

  17. Classification of boundary equilibrium bifurcations in planar Filippov systems.

    2016-01-01

    If a family of piecewise smooth systems depending on a real parameter is defined on two different regions of the plane separated by a switching surface, then a boundary equilibrium bifurcation occurs if a stationary point of one of the systems intersects the switching surface at a critical value of the parameter. We derive the leading order terms of a normal form for boundary equilibrium bifurcations of planar systems. This makes it straightforward to derive a complete classification of the bifurcations that can occur. We are thus able to confirm classic results of Filippov [Differential Equations with Discontinuous Right Hand Sides (Kluwer, Dordrecht, 1988)] using different and more transparent methods, and explain why the 'missing' cases of Hogan et al. [Piecewise Smooth Dynamical Systems: The Case of the Missing Boundary Equilibrium Bifurcations (University of Bristol, 2015)] are the only cases omitted in more recent work.

  18. Bifurcation theory for hexagonal agglomeration in economic geography

    Ikeda, Kiyohiro

    2014-01-01

    This book contributes to an understanding of how bifurcation theory adapts to the analysis of economic geography. It is easily accessible not only to mathematicians and economists, but also to upper-level undergraduate and graduate students who are interested in nonlinear mathematics. The self-organization of hexagonal agglomeration patterns of industrial regions was first predicted by the central place theory in economic geography based on investigations of southern Germany. The emergence of hexagonal agglomeration in economic geography models was envisaged by Krugman. In this book, after a brief introduction of central place theory and new economic geography, the missing link between them is discovered by elucidating the mechanism of the evolution of bifurcating hexagonal patterns. Pattern formation by such bifurcation is a well-studied topic in nonlinear mathematics, and group-theoretic bifurcation analysis is a well-developed theoretical tool. A finite hexagonal lattice is used to express uniformly distri...

    Duffing equation with fifth nonlinear-restoring force, one external forcing and a phase shift is investigated. The conditions of existences for primary resonance, second-order, third-order subharmonics, morder subharmonics and chaos are given by using second-averaging method, Melnikov methods and bifurcation theory. Numerical simulations including bifurcation diagrams, bifurcation surfaces, phase portraits, not only show the consistence with the theoretical analysis, but also exhibit the new dynamical behaviors. We show the onset of chaos, chaos suddenly disappearing to period orbit, one-band and double-band chaos, period-doubling bifurcations from period 1, 2, and 3 orbits, period-windows (period-2, 3 and 5) in chaotic regions.

    Institute of Scientific and Technical Information of China (English)

    2007-01-01

    Concerns double homoclinic loops with orbit flips and two resonant eigenvalues in a four-dimensional system. We use the solution of a normal form system to construct a singular map in some neighborhood of the equilibrium, and the solution of a linear variational system to construct a regular map in some neighborhood of the double culation gives explicitly an expression of the associated successor function. By a delicate analysis of the bifurcation equation, we obtain the condition that the original double homoclinic loops are kept, and prove the existence and the existence regions of the large 1-homoclinic orbit bifurcation surface, 2-fold large 1-periodic orbit bifurcation surface,large 2-homoclinic orbit bifurcation surface and their approximate expressions. We also locate the large periodic orbits and large homoclinic orbits and their number.

    Bifurcation analysis of ignition and extinction of catalytic combustion in a short micro-channel is carried out with the laminar flow model incorporated as the flow model. The square of transverse Thiele modulus and the realdence time are used as bifurcation parameters. The influences of different parameters on ignition and extinction behavior are investigated. It is shown that all these parameters have great effects on the bifurcation behaviors of ignition and extinction in the short micro-channel. The effects of flow models on bifurcation behaviors of combustion are also analyzed. The results show that in comparison with the fiat velocity profile model, for the case of the laminar flow model, the temperatures of ignition and extinction of combustion ate higher and the unsteady multiple solution region is larger.

We connect the associated hysteretic behavior with hydrodynamics changes induced by the action of the Lorentz force. We show the geometry of the dynamo magnetic field and discuss how the dynamo transition can be induced when an external field is applied to the flow.

    One of the main differences between parabolic transport, associated with Langevin equations driven by Wiener processes, and hyperbolic models related to generalized Kac equations driven by Poisson processes, is the occurrence in the latter of multiple stable invariant densities (Frobenius multiplicity) in certain regions of the parameter space. This phenomenon is associated with the occurrence in linear hyperbolic balance equations of a typical bifurcation, referred to as the ergodicity-breaking bifurcation, the properties of which are thoroughly analyzed.

    The bifurcation method is a way to do rare event sampling -- to estimate the probability of events that are too rare to be found by direct simulation. We describe the bifurcation method and use it to estimate the transition rate of a double well potential problem. We show that the associated constrained path sampling problem can be addressed by a combination of Crooks-Chandler sampling and parallel tempering and marginalization.

    The mapping which shows equilibrium particle distribution in synchrotron phase space for electron storage rings is discussed with respect to some localized constant wake function based on the Gaussian approximation. This mapping shows multi-periodic states as well as double bifurcation in dynamical states of the equilibrium bunch length. When moving around parameter space, the system shows a transition/bifurcation which is not always reversible. These results derived by mapping are confirmed by multiparticle tracking. (author)

    An impulsive delayed feedback control strategy to control period-doubling bifurcations and chaos is proposed.The control method is then applied to a discrete small-world network model.Qualitative analyses and simulations show that under a generic condition,the bifurcations and the chaos can be delayed or eliminated completely.In addition,the periodic orbits embedded in the chaotic attractor can be stabilized.

  16. Subcritical Hopf bifurcations in low-density jets

    Science.gov (United States)

    Zhu, Yuanhang; Gupta, Vikrant; Li, Larry K. B.

    2016-11-01

    Low-density jets are known to bifurcate from a steady state (a fixed point) to self-excited oscillations (a periodic limit cycle) when the Reynolds number increases above a critical value corresponding to the Hopf point, ReH . In the literature, this Hopf bifurcation is often considered to be supercritical because the self-excited oscillations appear only when Re > ReH . However, we find that under some conditions, there exists a hysteretic bistable region at ReSN ReSN denotes a saddle-node bifurcation point. This shows that the Hopf bifurcation can also be subcritical, which has three main implications. First, low-density jets could be triggered into self-excited oscillations even when Re < ReH . Second, in the modeling of low-density jets, the subcritical or supercritical nature of the Hopf bifurcation should be taken into account because the former is caused by cubic nonlinearity whereas the latter is caused by square nonlinearity. Third, the response of the system to external forcing and noise depends on its proximity to the bistable region. Therefore, when investigating the forced response of low-density jets, it is important to consider whether the Hopf bifurcation is subcritical or supercritical.

  17. Effects of Bifurcations on Aft-Fan Engine Nacelle Noise

    Science.gov (United States)

    Nark, Douglas M.; Farassat, Fereidoun; Pope, D. Stuart; Vatsa, Veer N.

    2004-01-01

    Aft-fan engine nacelle noise is a significant factor in the increasingly important issue of aircraft community noise. The ability to predict such noise within complex duct geometries is a valuable tool in studying possible noise attenuation methods. A recent example of code development for such predictions is the ducted fan noise propagation and radiation code CDUCT-LaRC. This work focuses on predicting the effects of geometry changes (i.e. bifurcations, pylons) on aft fan noise propagation. Beginning with simplified geometries, calculations show that bifurcations lead to scattering of acoustic energy into higher order modes. In addition, when circumferential mode number and the number of bifurcations are properly commensurate, bifurcations increase the relative importance of the plane wave mode near the exhaust plane of the bypass duct. This is particularly evident when the bypass duct surfaces include acoustic treatment. Calculations involving more complex geometries further illustrate that bifurcations and pylons clearly affect modal content, in both propagation and radiation calculations. Additionally, results show that consideration of acoustic radiation results may provide further insight into acoustic treatment effectiveness for situations in which modal decomposition may not be straightforward. The ability of CDUCT-LaRC to handle complex (non-axisymmetric) multi-block geometries, as well as axially and circumferentially segmented liners, allows investigation into the effects of geometric elements (bifurcations, pylons).

    We study low-frequency ferromagnetic resonance in a thin film magnetized along the hard magnetization axis performing an analysis of magnetization precession dynamics equations and numerical simulation. Two types of films are considered: polycrystalline uniaxial films and single-crystal films with cubic magnetic anisotropy. An additional (bifurcation) resonance initiated by the bistability, i.e. appearance of two closely spaced equilibrium magnetization states is registered. The modification of dynamic modes provoked by variation of the frequency, amplitude, and magnetic bias value of the ac field is studied. Both steady and chaotic magnetization precession modes are registered in the bifurcation resonance range. - Highlights: Black-Right-Pointing-Pointer An additional bifurcation resonance arises in a case of a thin film magnetized along HMA. Black-Right-Pointing-Pointer Bifurcation resonance occurs due to the presence of two closely spaced equilibrium magnetization states. Black-Right-Pointing-Pointer Both regular and chaotic precession modes are realized within bifurcation resonance range. Black-Right-Pointing-Pointer Appearance of dynamic bistability is typical for bifurcation resonance.

    The present book relies on various editions of my earlier book "Nonlinear Economic Dynamics", first published in 1989 in the Springer series "Lecture Notes in Economics and Mathematical Systems", and republished in three more, successively revised and expanded editions, as a Springer monograph, in 1991, 1993, and 1997, and in a Russian translation as "Nelineynaia Economicheskaia Dinamica". The first three editions were focused on applications. The last was differ­ ent, as it also included some chapters with mathematical background mate­ rial -ordinary differential equations and iterated maps -so as to make the book self-contained and suitable as a textbook for economics students of dynamical systems. To the same pedagogical purpose, the number of illus­ trations were expanded. The book published in 2000, with the title "A ttractors, Bifurcations, and Chaos -Nonlinear Phenomena in Economics", was so much changed, that the author felt it reasonable to give it a new title.

  1. Bifurcation analysis and stability design for aircraft longitudinal motion with high angle of attack

    2015-02-01

    Full Text Available Bifurcation analysis and stability design for aircraft longitudinal motion are investigated when the nonlinearity in flight dynamics takes place severely at high angle of attack regime. To predict the special nonlinear flight phenomena, bifurcation theory and continuation method are employed to systematically analyze the nonlinear motions. With the refinement of the flight dynamics for F-8 Crusader longitudinal motion, a framework is derived to identify the stationary bifurcation and dynamic bifurcation for high-dimensional system. Case study shows that the F-8 longitudinal motion undergoes saddle node bifurcation, Hopf bifurcation, Zero-Hopf bifurcation and branch point bifurcation under certain conditions. Moreover, the Hopf bifurcation renders series of multiple frequency pitch oscillation phenomena, which deteriorate the flight control stability severely. To relieve the adverse effects of these phenomena, a stabilization control based on gain scheduling and polynomial fitting for F-8 longitudinal motion is presented to enlarge the flight envelope. Simulation results validate the effectiveness of the proposed scheme.

  2. Morphodynamics of a Bifurcation on the Wax Lake Delta, LA

    2009-12-01

    To better predict the dynamical behavior of fine-grained deltaic distributary networks, we collected integrated morphological, flow, and sediment transport data from a third-order bifurcation (BIF) on the Wax Lake Delta, LA, during July 15-20, 2009. Theory and numerical modeling predicts that over a range of channel aspect ratios, friction factors, and Shields numbers, three functions exist that relate the discharge ratio of the bifurcate arms at equilibrium conditions to the Shields number. One function predicts symmetrical configurations, while the other two predict asymmetrical discharges. To test the theoretical predictions we employed high-resolution multibeam echo sounding (MBES) and acoustic Doppler velocity profiling to map the bifurcation. The arms of the BIF are asymmetric in planform, depth (west arm/east arm = 4.2/3.1 m), discharge (335/140 cumecs), and bedload transport, with two-thirds of the dunes revealed on the MBES survey entering the western bifurcate channel. The bed consists of fine sand (D50 = 0.125 mm) sculpted into dunes, which in these 4 m water depths average 7 meters long and 0.52 m high and provide a form friction factor of about 0.028. Measured cross-sectional mean velocity of the main channel during the survey was ~ 0.23 m/s, which for sand-bed systems yields a low Shields number of θ = 0.093. For this θ theory predicts a stable equilibrium bifurcate discharge ratio of 4.5, which compares unfavorably with the observed value of 2.4. As there is no indication from 30 years of aerial photography that this BIF is morphologically unstable, either the bifurcation is maintained by the higher discharges of the spring flood or the theoretical envelope of stable bifurcation configurations requires re-evaluation.

  3. Nonequilibrium Chemical Patterns and Their Bifurcations

    Science.gov (United States)

    Lee, Kyoung Jin

    Stationary and dynamic patterns that arise in reaction-diffusion systems are investigated in laboratory experiments. Our study reveals several new types of pattern that have not been observed in previous studies. The new patterns are observed in a ferrocyanide-iodate-sulfite (FIS) system, and they include stationary lamellae, self -replicating spots, and repulsive waves. All are large amplitude patterns that are initiated by a finite amplitude perturbation. Our simulation results on a four-species FIS reaction diffusion model as well as several recent studies on other models by other researchers reveal similar patterns and pattern forming instabilities. The stationary lamellae form through transverse front instability and front repulsion, whereas the much studied small amplitude Turing structures form spontaneously at the onset of the Turing instability. The mechanism of self-replicating spots, which undergo a life-like process of birth through replication and death through overcrowding, is explained heuristically and rigorously by the Ising-Bloch front bifurcation recently studied by Meron and co-workers. The repulsive excitable waves are different from conventional excitable waves in that they do not collide and annihilate. Our earlier study investigates Turing patterns in chlorite-iodide-malonic acid (CIMA) system. We demonstrate that Turing patterns can form in a CIMA system even without the presence of a large molecule, the starch color indicator, which in a popular model plays a crucial role in Turing pattern formation. We speculate that the polyacrylamide gel used in our study plays a similar role to that of the starch indicator. The morphological transition of a Turing structure in a CIMA system was also investigated by changing the thickness of the gel medium.

    This paper studies a singular prey-predator economic model with time delay and stage structure. Compared with other researches on dynamics of prey-predator population, this model is described by differential-algebraic equations due to economic factor. For zero economic profit, this model exhibits three bifurcational phenomena: transcritical bifurcation, Hopf bifurcation and singular induced bifurcation. For positive economic profit, the model undergoes a saddle-node bifurcation at critical value of positive economic profit, and the increase of delay destabilizes the positive equilibrium point of the system and bifurcates into small amplitude periodic solution. Finally, by using Matlab software, numerical simulations illustrate the effectiveness of the results.

    Background The predictive value of bifurcation angle (BA) for worse events after stenting bifurcation lesions remains to be unknown.The present study was to investigate the dynamic change of BA and clinical relevance for patients with coronary bifurcation lesions treated by drug-eluting stent (DES).Methods BA was calculated by 3-D quantitative coronary analysis from 347 patients in DKCRUSH-Ⅱ study.Primary endpoint was the occurrence of composite major adverse cardiac events (MACE) at 12-month,including cardiac death,myocardial infarction (MI) and target vessel revascularization (TVR).Secondary end points were the rate of binary restenosis and stent thrombosis at 12-month.Results Stenting was associated with the reduction of distal BA.The cut-off value of distal BAfor predicting MACE was 60° Distal BA in <60° group had less reduction after stenting ((-1.96±13.58)° vs.(-12.12±23.58)°,P <0.001 ); two-stent technique was associated with significant reduction of distal BA (△(-4.05±14.20)°),compared to single stent group (△+1.55±11.73,P=0.003); the target lesion revascularization (TLR),TVR and MACE rate was higher in one-stent group (16.5%,19.0% and 21.5%),compared to two-stent group (3.8%,P=0.002; 7.5%,P=0.016; and 9.8%,P=0.024),respectively.Among patients in ≥60° group,there were no significant differences in distal BA,stent thrombosis (ST),MI,MACE,death,TLR,TVR between one- and two-stent groups; after stenting procedure,there was only slight change of distal BA in left anterior descending (LAD)-Ieft circumflex (LCX) subgroup (from (88.54±21.33)° at baseline to (82.44±31.72)° post-stenting),compared to either LAD-diagonal branch (Di),or LCX-obtuse marginal branch (OM),or RCA distal (RCAd) (all P <0.001 ).Conclusion Two-stent technique was associated with significant reduction of distal BA.DK crush stenting had reduced rate of MACE in patients in <60° group,compared to one-stent technique.

    2006-07-01

    Full Text Available Abstract Background Bifurcation analysis has proven to be a powerful method for understanding the qualitative behavior of gene regulatory networks. In addition to the more traditional forward problem of determining the mapping from parameter space to the space of model behavior, the inverse problem of determining model parameters to result in certain desired properties of the bifurcation diagram provides an attractive methodology for addressing important biological problems. These include understanding how the robustness of qualitative behavior arises from system design as well as providing a way to engineer biological networks with qualitative properties. Results We demonstrate that certain inverse bifurcation problems of biological interest may be cast as optimization problems involving minimal distances of reference parameter sets to bifurcation manifolds. This formulation allows for an iterative solution procedure based on performing a sequence of eigen-system computations and one-parameter continuations of solutions, the latter being a standard capability in existing numerical bifurcation software. As applications of the proposed method, we show that the problem of maximizing regions of a given qualitative behavior as well as the reverse engineering of bistable gene switches can be modelled and efficiently solved.

  7. Numerical Investigation of Pulsatile Blood Flow in a Bifurcation Model with a Non-Planar Branch: The Effect of Different Bifurcation Angles and Non-Planar Branch

    Full Text Available Introduction: Atherosclerosis is a focal disease that susceptibly forms near bifurcations, anastomotic joints, side branches, and curved vessels along the arterial tree. In this study, pulsatile blood flow in a bifurcation model with a non-planar branch is investigated. Methods: Wall shear stress (WSS distributions along generating lines on vessels for different bifurcation angles are calculated during the pulse cycle. Results: The WSS at the outer side of the bifurcation plane vanishes especially for higher bifurcation angles but by increasing the bifurcation angle low WSS region squeezes. At the systolic phase there is a high possibility of formation of a separation region at the outer side of bifurcation plane for all the cases. WSS peaks exist on the inner side of bifurcation plane near the entry section of daughter vessels and these peaks drop as bifurcation angle is increased. Conclusion: It was found that non-planarity of the daughter vessel lowers the minimum WSS at the outer side of the bifurcation and increases the maximum WSS at the inner side. So it seems that the formation of atherosclerotic plaques at bifurcation region in direction of non-planar daughter vessel is more risky.

    As the second component of a systematic investigation on flows in bifurcations reported in this journal, this work focused on secondary currents. The first article addressed primary flows and the third discusses localized conditions (both in this issue). Secondary flow patterns were studied in two lung bifurcation models (Schreck, 1972) using FIDAP with the Cray T90 supercomputer. The currents were examined at different prescribed distances distal to the carina. Effects of inlet conditions, Reynolds numbers, and diameter ratios and orientations of airways were addressed. The secondary currents caused by the presence of the carina and inclination of the daughter tubes exhibited symmetric, multivortex patterns. The intensities of the secondary currents became stronger for larger Reynolds numbers and larger angles of bifurcation.

    Analog molecular circuits can exploit the nonlinear nature of biochemical reaction networks to compute low-precision outputs with fewer resources than digital circuits. This analog computation is similar to that employed by gene-regulation networks. Although digital systems have a tractable link between structure and function, the nonlinear and continuous nature of analog circuits yields an intricate functional landscape, which makes their design counter-intuitive, their characterization laborious and their analysis delicate. Here, using droplet-based microfluidics, we map with high resolution and dimensionality the bifurcation diagrams of two synthetic, out-of-equilibrium and nonlinear programs: a bistable DNA switch and a predator-prey DNA oscillator. The diagrams delineate where function is optimal, dynamics bifurcates and models fail. Inverse problem solving on these large-scale data sets indicates interference from enzymatic coupling. Additionally, data mining exposes the presence of rare, stochastically bursting oscillators near deterministic bifurcations.

  10. Dynamical systems V bifurcation theory and catastrophe theory

    CERN Document Server

    1994-01-01

    Bifurcation theory and catastrophe theory are two of the best known areas within the field of dynamical systems. Both are studies of smooth systems, focusing on properties that seem to be manifestly non-smooth. Bifurcation theory is concerned with the sudden changes that occur in a system when one or more parameters are varied. Examples of such are familiar to students of differential equations, from phase portraits. Moreover, understanding the bifurcations of the differential equations that describe real physical systems provides important information about the behavior of the systems. Catastrophe theory became quite famous during the 1970's, mostly because of the sensation caused by the usually less than rigorous applications of its principal ideas to "hot topics", such as the characterization of personalities and the difference between a "genius" and a "maniac". Catastrophe theory is accurately described as singularity theory and its (genuine) applications. The authors of this book, the first printing of w...

    We investigate the buckling under compression of a slender beam with a distributed lateral elastic support, for which there is an associated cost. For a given cost, we study the optimal choice of support to protect against Euler buckling. We show that with only weak lateral support, the optimum distribution is a delta-function at the centre of the beam. When more support is allowed, we find numerically that the optimal distribution undergoes a series of bifurcations. We obtain analytical expressions for the buckling load around the first bifurcation point and corresponding expansions for the optimal position of support. Our theoretical predictions, including the critical exponent of the bifurcation, are confirmed by computer simulations.

  12. Adaptive Control of Electromagnetic Suspension System by HOPF Bifurcation

    2013-01-01

    Full Text Available EMS-type maglev system is essentially nonlinear and unstable. It is complicated to design a stable controller for maglev system which is under large-scale disturbance and parameter variance. Theory analysis expresses that this phenomenon corresponds to a HOPF bifurcation in mathematical model. An adaptive control law which adjusts the PID control parameters is given in this paper according to HOPF bifurcation theory. Through identification of the levitated mass, the controller adjusts the feedback coefficient to make the system far from the HOPF bifurcation point and maintain the stability of the maglev system. Simulation result indicates that adjusting proportion gain parameter using this method can extend the state stability range of maglev system and avoid the self-excited vibration efficiently.

    2011-01-01

    First-principles numerical simulations are used to describe a transport bifurcation in a differentially rotating tokamak plasma. Such a bifurcation is more probable in a region of zero magnetic shear, where the component of the sheared toroidal flow that is perpendicular to the magnetic field has the strongest suppressing effect on the turbulence, than one of finite magnetic shear. Where the magnetic shear is zero, there are no growing linear eigenmodes at any finite value of flow shear. However, subcritical turbulence can be sustained, owing to the transient growth of modes driven by the ion temperature gradient (ITG) and the parallel velocity gradient (PVG). Nonetheless, in a parameter space containing a wide range of temperature gradients and velocity shears, there is a sizeable window where all turbulence is suppressed. Combined with the relatively low transport of momentum by collisional (neoclassical) mechanisms, this produces the conditions for a bifurcation from low to high temperature and velocity gr...

    This paper presents the experimental results on the distribution of sediments at channel bifurcation.The experiments have been conducted in a physical model of channel bifurcation. It consists of a straight main channel which bifurcates into two branch channels of different widths. The test rig is a mobile bed with fixed bank. Four different noses have been used to study the phenomenon. For each nose, three upstream discharges viz. 20 l/s, 30 l/s and 40 l/s have been employed. From the measured data, discharges and sediment transport ratios per unit width are calculated in the downstream branches.These data have been set to the general nodal point relation and a set of equations has been developed to describe the distribution of sediments to the downstream branches for different nose angles.

    It has been numerically seen that noise introduces stable well-defined oscillatory state in a system with unstable limit cycles resulting from subcritical Poincaré-Andronov-Hopf (or simply Hopf) bifurcation. This phenomenon is analogous to the well known stochastic resonance in the sense that it effectively converts noise into useful energy. Herein, we clearly explain how noise induced imperfection in the bifurcation is a generic reason for such a phenomenon to occur and provide explicit analytical calculations in order to explain the typical square-root dependence of the oscillations' amplitude on the noise level below a certain threshold value. Also, we argue that the noise can bring forth oscillations in average sense even in the absence of a limit cycle. Thus, we bring forward the inherent general mechanism of the noise induced Hopf bifurcation naturally realisable across disciplines.

  18. Bifurcations and transitions to chaos in an inverted pendulum

    Kim, Sang-Yoon; Hu, Bambi

    1998-09-01

    We consider a parametrically forced pendulum with a vertically oscillating suspension point. It is well known that, as the amplitude of the vertical oscillation is increased, its inverted state (corresponding to the vertically-up configuration) undergoes a cascade of ``resurrections,'' i.e., it becomes stabilized after its instability, destabilize again, and so forth ad infinitum. We make a detailed numerical investigation of the bifurcations associated with such resurrections of the inverted pendulum by varying the amplitude and frequency of the vertical oscillation. It is found that the inverted state stabilizes via alternating ``reverse'' subcritical pitchfork and period-doubling bifurcations, while it destabilizes via alternating ``normal'' supercritical period-doubling and pitchfork bifrucations. An infinite sequence of period-doubling bifurcations, leading to chaos, follows each destabilization of the inverted state. The critical behaviors in the period-doubling cascades are also discussed.

    2009-01-01

    In this paper we find a class of new degenerate central configurations and bifurcations in the Newtonian $n$-body problem. In particular we analyze the Rosette central configurations, namely a coplanar configuration where $n$ particles of mass $m_1$ lie at the vertices of a regular $n$-gon, $n$ particles of mass $m_2$ lie at the vertices of another $n$-gon concentric with the first, but rotated of an angle $\\pi/n$, and an additional particle of mass $m_0$ lies at the center of mass of the system. This system admits two mass parameters $\\mu=m_0/m_1$ and $\\ep=m_2/m_1$. We show that, as $\\mu$ varies, if $n> 3$, there is a degenerate central configuration and a bifurcation for every $\\ep>0$, while if $n=3$ there is a bifurcations only for some values of $\\epsilon$.

    Most learning processes in neuronal networks happen on a much longer time scale than that of the underlying neuronal dynamics. It is therefore useful to analyze slowly varying macroscopic order parameters to explore a network's learning ability. We study the synaptic learning process giving rise...... to map formation in the laminar nucleus of the barn owl's auditory system. Using equation-free methods, we perform a bifurcation analysis of spatio-temporal structure formation in the associated synaptic-weight matrix. This enables us to analyze learning as a bifurcation process and follow the unstable...... states as well. A simple time translation of the learning window function shifts the bifurcation point of structure formation and goes along with traveling waves in the map, without changing the animal's sound localization performance....

  1. An explicit example of Hopf bifurcation in fluid mechanics

    Kloeden, P.; Wells, R.

    1983-01-01

    It is observed that a complete and explicit example of Hopf bifurcation appears not to be known in fluid mechanics. Such an example is presented for the rotating Benard problem with free boundary conditions on the upper and lower faces, and horizontally periodic solutions. Normal modes are found for the linearization, and the Veronis computation of the wave numbers is modified to take into account the imposed horizontal periodicity. An invariant subspace of the phase space is found in which the hypotheses of the Joseph-Sattinger theorem are verified, thus demonstrating the Hopf bifurcation. The criticality calculations are carried through to demonstrate rigorously, that the bifurcation is subcritical for certain cases, and to demonstrate numerically that it is subcritical for all the cases in the paper.

    1992-01-01

    Merchant and Davis performed a linear stability analysis on a model for the directional solidification of a dilute binary alloy valid for all speeds. The analysis revealed that nonequilibrium segregation effects modify the Mullins and Sekerka cellular mode, whereas attachment kinetics has no effect on these cells. In this paper, the nonlinear stability of the steady cellular mode is analyzed. A Landau equation is obtained that determines the amplitude of the cells. The Landau coefficient here depends on both nonequilibrium segregation effects and attachment kinetics. This equation gives the ranges of parameters for subcritical bifurcation (jump transition) or supercritical bifurcation (smooth transition) to cells.

    Three algorithms based on the bifurcation method are applied to solving the D4 symmetric positive solutions to the boundary value problem of Henon equation. Taking r in Henon equation as a bi- furcation parameter, the D4-Σd(D4-Σ1, D4-Σ2) symmetry-breaking bifurcation points on the branch of the D4 symmetric positive solutions are found via the extended systems. Finally, Σd(Σ1, Σ2) sym- metric positive solutions are computed by the branch switching method based on the Liapunov-Schmidt reduction.

    We modified the way in which the Universal Map is obtained in the regular dynamics to derive the Universal α-Family of Maps depending on a single parameter α>0, which is the order of the fractional derivative in the nonlinear fractional differential equation describing a system experiencing periodic kicks. We consider two particular α-families corresponding to the Standard and Logistic Maps. For fractional αbifurcations from regular to chaotic motion in regular dynamics corresponding fractional systems demonstrate a new type of attractors--cascade of bifurcations type trajectories.

    One- and two-dimensional continuation techniques are applied to study the bifurcation structure of a model of renal flow and pressure control. Integrating the main physiological mechanisms by which the individual nephron regulates the incoming blood flow, the model describes the interaction between...... the tubuloglomerular feedback and the response of the afferent arteriole. It is shown how a Hopf bifurcation leads the system to perform self-sustained oscillations if the feedback gain becomes sufficiently strong, and how a further increase of this parameter produces a folded structure of overlapping period...

    The self-propelled motion of a mm-sized oil droplet floating on water, induced by a local temperature gradient generated by CW laser irradiation is reported. The circular droplet exhibits two types of regular periodic motion, reciprocal and circular, around the laser spot under suitable laser power. With an increase in laser power, a mode bifurcation from rectilinear reciprocal motion to circular motion is caused. The essential aspects of this mode bifurcation are discussed in terms of spontaneous symmetry-breaking under temperature-induced interfacial instability, and are theoretically reproduced with simple coupled differential equations.

    2016-06-01

    The nonlinear analysis of a forest-grassland ecosystem is performed as the main system parameters are changed. The model consists of a couple of nonlinear ordinary differential equations which include dynamically the human perceptions of forest/grassland value. The system displays multiple steady states corresponding to different forest densities as well as periodic regimes characterized by oscillations in time. We performed the bifurcation analysis of the system as the parameter relative to the human opinions influence is changed. We found that the main mechanisms which regulate the transitions occurring between different states or the appearance of new steady and dynamic regimes are transcritical, saddle/node and Hopf bifurcations.

  8. Bogdanov-Takens bifurcation in a predator-prey model

    Science.gov (United States)

    Liu, Zhihua; Magal, Pierre; Xiao, Dongmei

    2016-12-01

    In this paper, we investigate a class of predator-prey model with age structure and discuss whether the model can undergo Bogdanov-Takens bifurcation. The analysis is based on the normal form theory and the center manifold theory for semilinear equations with non-dense domain combined with integrated semigroup theory. Qualitative analysis indicates that there exist some parameter values such that this predator-prey model has an unique positive equilibrium which is Bogdanov-Takens singularity. Moreover, it is shown that under suitable small perturbation, the system undergoes the Bogdanov-Takens bifurcation in a small neighborhood of this positive equilibrium.

  9. An Approach to Robust Control of the Hopf Bifurcation

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Giacomo Innocenti

    2011-01-01

    Full Text Available The paper illustrates a novel approach to modify the Hopf bifurcation nature via a nonlinear state feedback control, which leaves the equilibrium properties unchanged. This result is achieved by recurring to linear and nonlinear transformations, which lead the system to locally assume the ordinary differential equation representation. Third-order models are considered, since they can be seen as proper representatives of a larger class of systems. The explicit relationship between the control input and the Hopf bifurcation nature is obtained via a frequency approach, that does not need the computation of the center manifold.

  10. Inflation, bifurcations of nonlinear curvature Lagrangians and dark energy

    CERN Document Server

    Mielke, Eckehard W; Schunck, Franz E

    2008-01-01

    A possible equivalence of scalar dark matter, the inflaton, and modified gravity is analyzed. After a conformal mapping, the dependence of the effective Lagrangian on the curvature is not only singular but also bifurcates into several almost Einsteinian spaces, distinguished only by a different effective gravitational strength and cosmological constant. A swallow tail catastrophe in the bifurcation set indicates the possibility for the coexistence of different Einsteinian domains in our Universe. This `triple unification' may shed new light on the nature and large scale distribution not only of dark matter but also on `dark energy', regarded as an effective cosmological constant, and inflation.

    2015-01-07

    © 2015 Taylor & Francis. We present two case studies in one-dimensional dynamics concerning the discretization of transcritical (TC) and pitchfork (PF) bifurcations. In the vicinity of a TC or PF bifurcation point and under some natural assumptions on the one-step discretization method of order (Formula presented.) , we show that the time- (Formula presented.) exact and the step-size- (Formula presented.) discretized dynamics are topologically equivalent by constructing a two-parameter family of conjugacies in each case. As a main result, we prove that the constructed conjugacy maps are (Formula presented.) -close to the identity and these estimates are optimal.

    Virtual bench testing is a numerical methodology which has been applied to the study of coronary interventions. It exploits the amazing growth of computer performance for scientific calculation and makes it possible to simulate very different and complex multiphysics environments and processes, including coronary bifurcation stenting. The quality of prediction from any computer model is very sensitive to the quality of the input data and assumptions. This also holds true in stent virtual bench testing. This paper reviews the state of the art in the field of bifurcation stenting modelling and identifies the current advantages and limitations of this methodology.

    Saputra, Kie Van Ivanky

    2015-06-01

    We investigate a dynamical system having a special structure namely a codimension-one invariant manifold that is preserved under the variation of parameters. We derive conditions such that bifurcations of codimension-one and of codimension-two occur in the system. The normal forms of these bifurcations are derived explicitly. Both local and global bifurcations are analyzed and yield the transcritical bifurcation as the codimension-one bifurcation while the saddle-node-transcritical interaction and the Hopf-transcritical interactions as the codimension-two bifurcations. The unfolding of this degeneracy is also analyzed and reveal global bifurcations such as homoclinic and heteroclinic bifurcations. We apply our results to a modified Lotka-Volterra model and to an infection model in HIV diseases.

By analyzing the associated characteristic equation of the original system at the positive equilibrium and choosing the delay as the bifurcation parameter, the local stability and Hopf bifurcation of the system are investigated. Using the normal form theory, we also establish the direction and stability of the Hopf bifurcation. Numerical simulations suggest an existence of Hopf bifurcation near a critical value of time delay.

    Various ideas concerning model reduction based on proper orthogonal decomposition are discussed, exploited, and suited to the approximation of complex bifurcations in some dissipative systems. The observation that the most energetic modes involved in these low dimensional descriptions depend only weakly on the actual values of the problem parameters is firstly highlighted and used to develop a simple strategy to capture the transitions occurring over a given bifurcation parameter span. Flexibility of the approach is stressed by means of some numerical experiments. A significant improvement is obtained by introducing a truncation error estimate to detect when the approximation fails. Thus, the considered modes are suitably updated on demand, as the bifurcation parameter is varied, in order to account for possible changes in the phase space of the system that might be missed. A further extension of the method to more complex (quasi-periodic and chaotic) attractors is finally outlined by implementing a control of truncation instabilities, which leads to a general, adaptive reduced order model for the construction of bifurcation diagrams. Illustration of the ideas and methods in the complex Ginzburg–Landau equation (a paradigm of laminar flows on a bounded domain) evidences a fairly good computational efficiency. (paper)

    2016-01-01

    The periodic-orbit theory based on the improved stationary-phase method within the phase-space path integral approach is presented for the semiclassical description of the nuclear shell structure, concerning the main topics of the fruitful activity of V. G. Solovjov. We apply this theory to study bifurcations and symmetry breaking phenomena in a radial power-law potential which is close to the realistic Woods-Saxon one up to about the Fermi energy. Using the realistic parametrization of nuclear shapes we explain the origin of the double-humped fission barrier and the asymmetry in the fission isomer shapes by the bifurcations of periodic orbits. The semiclassical origin of the oblate-prolate shape asymmetry and tetrahedral shapes is also suggested within the improved periodic-orbit approach. The enhancement of shell structures at some surface diffuseness and deformation parameters of such shapes are explained by existence of the simple local bifurcations and new non-local bridge-orbit bifurcations in integrabl...

    The grid altimetry data between 1993 and 2006 near the Philippines were analyzed by the method of Empirical Orthogonal Function (EOF) to study the variation of bifurcation of the North Equatorial Current at the surface of the Pacific. The relatively short-term signals with periods of about 6 months, 4 months, 3 months and 2 months are found besides seasonal and interannual variations mentioned in previous studies. Local wind stress curl plays an important role in controlling variation of bifurcation latitude except in the interannual timescale. The bifurcation latitude is about 13.3°N in annual mean state and it lies at the northernmost position (14.0°N) in January, at the southernmost position (12.5°N) in July. The amplitude of variation of bifurcation latitude in a year is 1.5°, which can mainly be explained as the contributions of the signals with periods of about 1 year (1.2°) and 0.5 year (0.3°).

  12. A recent bifurcation in Arctic sea-ice cover

    CERN Document Server

    Livina, Valerie N

    2012-01-01

    There is ongoing debate over whether Arctic sea-ice has already passed a 'tipping point', or whether it will do so in future, with several recent studies arguing that the loss of summer sea ice does not involve a bifurcation because it is highly reversible in models. Recently developed methods can detect and sometimes forewarn of bifurcations in time-series data, hence we applied them to satellite data for Arctic sea-ice cover. Here we show that a new low ice cover state has appeared from 2007 onwards, which is distinct from the normal state of seasonal sea ice variation, suggesting a bifurcation has occurred from one attractor to two. There was no robust early warning signal of critical slowing down prior to this bifurcation, consistent with it representing the appearance of a new ice cover state rather than the loss of stability of the existing state. The new low ice cover state has been sampled predominantly in summer-autumn and seasonal forcing combined with internal climate variability are likely respons...

However, all early warning indicators show destabilization of the summer-autumn sea-ice since 2007. This suggests the new low ice cover state may be a transient feature and further abrupt changes in summer-autumn Arctic sea-ice cover could lie ahead; either reversion to the normal state or a yet larger ice loss.

    We studied the pressure patterns used by domestic canaries in the production of birdsong. Acoustically different sound elements (“syllables”) were generated by qualitatively different pressure gestures. We found that some ubiquitous transitions between syllables can be interpreted as bifurcations of a low dimensional dynamical system. We interpreted these results as evidence supporting a model in which different timescales interact nonlinearly.

    Lee, B. H. K.; Price, S. J.; Wong, Y. S.

    1999-04-01

    Different types of structural and aerodynamic nonlinearities commonly encountered in aeronautical engineering are discussed. The equations of motion of a two-dimensional airfoil oscillating in pitch and plunge are derived for a structural nonlinearity using subsonic aerodynamics theory. Three classical nonlinearities, namely, cubic, freeplay and hysteresis are investigated in some detail. The governing equations are reduced to a set of ordinary differential equations suitable for numerical simulations and analytical investigation of the system stability. The onset of Hopf-bifurcation, and amplitudes and frequencies of limit cycle oscillations are investigated, with examples given for a cubic hardening spring. For various geometries of the freeplay, bifurcations and chaos are discussed via the phase plane, Poincaré maps, and Lyapunov spectrum. The route to chaos is investigated from bifurcation diagrams, and for the freeplay nonlinearity it is shown that frequency doubling is the most commonly observed route. Examples of aerodynamic nonlinearities arising from transonic flow and dynamic stall are discussed, and special attention is paid to numerical simulation results for dynamic stall using a time-synthesized method for the unsteady aerodynamics. The assumption of uniform flow is usually not met in practice since perturbations in velocities are encountered in flight. Longitudinal atmospheric turbulence is introduced to show its effect on both the flutter boundary and the onset of Hopf-bifurcation for a cubic restoring force.

    GAN Chunbiao

    2004-01-01

    A new procedure is developed to study the stochastic Hopf bifurcation in quasiintegrable-Hamiltonian systems under the Gaussian white noise excitation. Firstly, the singular boundaries of the first-class and their asymptotic stable conditions in probability are given for the averaged Ito differential equations about all the sub-system's energy levels with respect to the stochastic averaging method. Secondly, the stochastic Hopf bifurcation for the coupled sub-systems are discussed by defining a suitable bounded torus region in the space of the energy levels and employing the theory of the torus region when the singular boundaries turn into the unstable ones. Lastly, a quasi-integrableHamiltonian system with two degrees of freedom is studied in detail to illustrate the above procedure.Moreover, simulations by the Monte-Carlo method are performed for the illustrative example to verify the proposed procedure. It is shown that the attenuation motions and the stochastic Hopf bifurcation of two oscillators and the stochastic Hopf bifurcation of a single oscillator may occur in the system for some system's parameters. Therefore, one can see that the numerical results are consistent with the theoretical predictions.

  2. Forcing an entire bifurcation diagram: Case studies in chemical oscillators

    Science.gov (United States)

    Kevrekidis, I. G.; Aris, R.; Schmidt, L. D.

    1986-12-01

    We study the finite amplitude periodic forcing of chemical oscillators. In particular, we examine systems that, when autonomous, (i.e. for zero forcing amplitude) exhibit a single stable oscillation. Using one of the system parameters as a forcing variable by varying it periodically, we show through extensive numerical work how the bifurcation diagram of the autonomous system with respect to this parameter affects the qualitative response of the full forced system. As the forcing variable oscillates around its midpoint, its instantaneous values may cross points (such as Hopf bifurcation poiints) of the autonomous bifurcation diagram so that the characterization of the system as a simple forced oscillator is no longer valid. Such a neighboring Hopf bifurcation of the unforced system is found to set the scene for the interaction of resonance horns and the loss of tori in the full forced system as the amplitude of the forcing grows. Our test case presented here is the Continuous Stirred Tank Reactor (CSTR) with periodically forced coolant temperature.

  3. Bifurcation Analysis and Chaos Control in a Discrete Epidemic System

    2015-01-01

    Full Text Available The dynamics of discrete SI epidemic model, which has been obtained by the forward Euler scheme, is investigated in detail. By using the center manifold theorem and bifurcation theorem in the interior R+2, the specific conditions for the existence of flip bifurcation and Neimark-Sacker bifurcation have been derived. Numerical simulation not only presents our theoretical analysis but also exhibits rich and complex dynamical behavior existing in the case of the windows of period-1, period-3, period-5, period-6, period-7, period-9, period-11, period-15, period-19, period-23, period-34, period-42, and period-53 orbits. Meanwhile, there appears the cascade of period-doubling 2, 4, 8 bifurcation and chaos sets from the fixed point. These results show the discrete model has more richer dynamics compared with the continuous model. The computations of the largest Lyapunov exponents more than 0 confirm the chaotic behaviors of the system x→x+δ[rN(1-N/K-βxy/N-(μ+mx], y→y+δ[βxy/N-(μ+dy]. Specifically, the chaotic orbits at an unstable fixed point are stabilized by using the feedback control method.

  5. Dynamics and bifurcations of a coupled column-pendulum oscillator

    Science.gov (United States)

    Mustafa, G.; Ertas, A.

    1995-05-01

    This study deals with the dynamics of a large flexible column with a tip mass-pendulum arrangement. The system is a conceptualization of a vibration-absorbing device for flexible structures with tip appendages. The bifurcation diagrams of the averaged system indicate that the system loses stability via two distinct routes; one leading to a saddle-node bifurcation, and the other to the Hopf bifurcation, indicating the existence of an invariant torus. Under the change of forcing amplitude, these bifurcations coalesce. This phenomenon has important global ramifications, in the sense that the periodic modulations associated with the Hopf bifurcation tend to have an infinite period, a strong indicator of existence of homoclinic orbits. The system also possesses isolated solutions (the so-called "isolas") that form isolated loops bounded away from zero. As the forcing amplitude is varied, the isolas appear, disappear or coalesce with the regular solution branches. The response curves indicate that the column amplitude shows saturation and the pendulum acts as a vibration absorber. However, there is also a frequency range over which a reverse flow of energy occurs, where the pendulum shows reduced amplitude at the cost of large amplitudes of the column. The experimental dynamics shows that the periodic motion gives rise to a quasi-periodic response, confirming the existence of tori. Within the quasi-periodic region, there are windows containing intricate webs of mode-locked periodic responses. An increase in the force amplitude causes the tori to break up, a phenomenon similar to the onset of turbulence in hydrodynamics.

    A kind of 2-dimensional neural network model with delay is considered. By analyzing the distribution of the roots of the characteristic equation associated with the model, a bifurcation diagram was drawn in an appropriate parameter plane. It is found that a line is a pitchfork bifurcation curve. Further more, the stability of each fixed point and existence of Hopf bifurcation were obtained. Finally, the direction of the Hopf bifurcation and the stability of the bifurcating periodic solutions were determined by using the normal form method and centre manifold theory.

    A two-degrees-of-freedom vibratory system with a clearance or gap is under consideration based on the Poincard map. Stability and local bifurcation of the period-one doubleimpact symmetrical motion of the system are analyzed by using the equation of map. The routes from periodic impact motions to chaos, via pitchfork bifurcation, period-doubling bifurcation and grazing bifurcation, are studied by numerical simulation. Under suitable system parameter conditions, Neimark-Sacker bifurcations associated with periodic impact motion can occur in the two-degrees-of-freedom vibro-impact system.

    We analyze the bifurcations occurring in the 3D Hindmarsh-Rose neuronal model with and without random signal. When under a sufficient stimulus, the neuron activity takes place; we observe various types of bifurcations that lead to chaotic transitions. Beside the equilibrium solutions and their stability, we also investigate the deterministic bifurcation. It appears that the neuronal activity consists of chaotic transitions between two periodic phases called bursting and spiking solutions. The stochastic bifurcation, defined as a sudden change in character of a stochastic attractor when the bifurcation parameter of the system passes through a critical value, or under certain condition as the collision of a stochastic attractor with a stochastic saddle, occurs when a random Gaussian signal is added. Our study reveals two kinds of stochastic bifurcation: the phenomenological bifurcation (P-bifurcations) and the dynamical bifurcation (D-bifurcations). The asymptotical method is used to analyze phenomenological bifurcation. We find that the neuronal activity of spiking and bursting chaos remains for finite values of the noise intensity.

    2008-01-01

    The multi-bifurcation effect of blood flow is investigated by lattice Boltzmann method at Re = 200 with six different bifurcation angles α, which are 22.5°, 25°, 28°, 30°, 33°, 35°, respectively. The velocities and ratios of average velocity at various bifurcations are discussed. It is indicated that the maximum velocity at the section near the first divider increases and shifts towards the walls of branch with the increase of α. At the first bifurcation, the average horizontal velocities increase with the increase of α. The average horizontal velocities of outer branches at the secondary bifurcation decrease at 22.5°≤α≤30° and increase at 30°≤α≤35°, whereas those of inner branches at the secondary bifurcation have the opposite variation, as the same as the above variations of the ratios of average horizontal velocities at various bifurcations. The ratios of average vertical velocities of branch at first bifurcation to that of outer branches at the secondary bifurcation increase at 22.5°≤α≤30° and decrease at 30°≤α≤35°, whereas the ratios of average vertical velocities of branch at first bifurcation to that of inner branches at the secondary bifurcation always decrease.

    2008-01-01

    This paper studies the global bifurcation and Hopf bifurcation of one kind of complicated financial system with different parameter combinations. Conditions on which bifurcation happens, and the critical system structure when the system transforms from one kind of topological structure to another are studied as well. The criterion for identifying Hopf bifurcation under different parameter combinations is also given. The chaotic character of this system under quasi-periodic force is finally studied. The bifurcation structure graphs are given when two parameters of the combination are fixed while the other parameter varies. The presence and stability of 2 and 3 dimensional torus bifurcation are studied. All of the Lyapunov exponents of the system with different bifurcation parameters and routes leading the system to chaos with different parameter combinations are studied. It is of important theoretical and practical meaning to probe the intrinsic mechanism of such continuous complicated financial system and to find the macro control policies for such kind of system.

    This paper is concerned with a two species Lotka-Volterra predator-prey system with three discrete delays. By regarding the gestation period of two species as the bifurcation parameter, the stability of positive equilibrium and Hopf bifurcations of nonconstant periodic solutions are investigated. Furthermore, the direction of Hopf bifurcations and the stability of bifurcated periodic solutions are determined by applying the normal form theory and the center manifold reduction for functional differential equations (FDEs). In addition, the global existence of bifurcated periodic solutions are also established by employing the topological global Hopf bifurcation theorem, which shows that the local Hopf bifurcations imply the global ones after the second critical value of parameter. Finally, to verify our theoretical predictions, some numerical simulations are also included.

    2016-01-08

    We discuss a complicated bifurcation structure involving several quasiperiodic bifurcations generated in a three-coupled delayed logistic map where a doubly twisted Neimark–Sacker bifurcation causes a transition from two coexisting periodic attractors to two coexisting invariant closed circles (ICCs) corresponding to two two-dimensional tori in a vector field. Such bifurcation structures are observed in Arnol'd tongues. Lyapunov and bifurcation analyses suggest that the two coexisting ICCs and the two coexisting periodic solutions almost overlap in the two-parameter bifurcation diagram. - Highlights: • This study investigates a three-coupled delayed logistic map. • It generates complex quasiperiodic bifurcations. • Two periodic solution coexist in a conventional Arnol'd tongue. • Two two-tori coexist in a high-dimensional Arnol'd tongue.

  15. A bifurcation analysis of boiling water reactor on large domain of parametric spaces

    2016-09-01

    The boiling water reactors (BWRs) are inherently nonlinear physical system, as any other physical system. The reactivity feedback, which is caused by both moderator density and temperature, allows several effects reflecting the nonlinear behavior of the system. Stability analyses of BWR is done with a simplified, reduced order model, which couples point reactor kinetics with thermal hydraulics of the reactor core. The linear stability analysis of the BWR for steady states shows that at a critical value of bifurcation parameter (i.e. feedback gain), Hopf bifurcation occurs. These stable and unstable domains of parametric spaces cannot be predicted by linear stability analysis because the stability of system does not include only stability of the steady states. The stability of other dynamics of the system such as limit cycles must be included in study of stability. The nonlinear stability analysis (i.e. bifurcation analysis) becomes an indispensable component of stability analysis in this scenario. Hopf bifurcation, which occur with one free parameter, is studied here and it formulates birth of limit cycles. The excitation of these limit cycles makes the system bistable in the case of subcritical bifurcation whereas stable limit cycles continues in an unstable region for supercritical bifurcation. The distinction between subcritical and supercritical Hopf is done by two parameter analysis (i.e. codimension-2 bifurcation). In this scenario, Generalized Hopf bifurcation (GH) takes place, which separates sub and supercritical Hopf bifurcation. The various types of bifurcation such as limit point bifurcation of limit cycle (LPC), period doubling bifurcation of limit cycles (PD) and Neimark-Sacker bifurcation of limit cycles (NS) have been identified with the Floquet multipliers. The LPC manifests itself as the region of bistability whereas chaotic region exist because of cascading of PD. This region of bistability and chaotic solutions are drawn on the various

    A discrete predator-prey system with Holling type-Ⅳ functional response obtained by the Euler method is first investigated. The conditions of existence for fold bifurcation, flip bifurcation and Hopf bifurcation are derived by using the center manifold theorem and bifurcation theory. Furthermore, we give the condition for the occurrence of codimension-two bifurcation called the Bogdanov-Takens bifurcation for fixed points and present approximate expressions for saddle-node, Hopf and homoclinic bifurcation sets near the Bogdanov-Takens bifurcation point. We also show, the existence of degenerated fixed point with codimension three at least. The numerical simulations, including bifurcation diagrams, phase portraits, and computation of maximum Lyapunov exponents, not only show the consistence with the theoretical analysis but also exhibit the rich and complex dynamical behaviors such as the attracting invariant circle, period-doubling bifurcation from period-2,3,4 orbits,interior crisis, intermittency mechanic, and sudden disappearance of chaotic dynamic.

    2001-04-01

    Localized flow conditions (e.g., backflows) in transition regions between parent and daughter airways of bifurcations were investigated using a computational fluid dynamics software code (FIDAP) with a Cray T90 supercomputer. The configurations of the bifurcations were based on Schreck s (1972) laboratory models. The flow intensities and spatial regions of reversed motion were simulated for different conditions. The effects of inlet velocity profiles, Reynolds numbers, and dimensions and orientations of airways were addressed. The computational results showed that backflow was increased for parabolic inlet conditions, larger Reynolds numbers, and larger daughter-to-parent diameter ratios. This article is the third in a systematic series addressed in this issue; the first addressed primary velocity patterns and the second discussed secondary currents.

    2014-07-01

    Full Text Available In this article we consider a special type of second-order delay differential equations. More precisely, we take an equation of a conservative mechanical system in one dimension with an added term that is a function of the difference between the value of the position at time $t$ minus the position at the delayed time $t-\\tau$. For this system, we show that, under certain conditions of non-degeneration and of convergence of the periodic solutions obtained by the Homotopy Analysis Method, bifurcation branches appearing in a neighbourhood of Hopf bifurcation due to the delay are isochronous; i.e., all the emerging cycles have the same frequency.

    A 1.5-layer reduced-gravity model forced by wind stress is used to study the bifurcations of the North Equatorial Current (NEC).The authors found that after removing the Ekman drift,the modelled circulations can serve well as a proxy of the SODA circulations on the σθ=25.0kgm-3 potential density surface based on available long-term reanalysis wind stress data.The modelled results show that the location of the western boundary bifurcation of the NEC depends on both zonal averaged and local zero wind stress curl latitude.The effects of the anomalous wind stress curl added in different areas are also investigated and it is found that they can change the strength of the Mindanao Eddy (ME),and then influence the interior pathway.

    Temporal lobe epilepsy is one of the most common chronic neurological disorder characterized by the occurrence of spontaneous recurrent seizures which can be observed at the level of populations through electroencephalogram (EEG) recordings. This paper summarizes some preliminary works aimed to understand from a theoretical viewpoint the occurrence of this type of seizures and the origin of the oscillatory activity in some classical cortical column models. We relate these rhythmic activities to the structure of the set of periodic orbits in the models, and therefore to their bifurcations. We will be mainly interested Jansen and Rit model, and study the codimension one, two and a codimension three bifurcations of equilibria and cycles of this model. We can therefore understand the effect of the different biological parameters of the system of the apparition of epileptiform activity and observe the emergence of alpha, delta and theta sleep waves in a certain range of parameter. We then present a very quick stud...

  1. Model Reduction of Nonlinear Aeroelastic Systems Experiencing Hopf Bifurcation

    KAUST Repository

    Abdelkefi, Abdessattar

    2013-06-18

    In this paper, we employ the normal form to derive a reduced - order model that reproduces nonlinear dynamical behavior of aeroelastic systems that undergo Hopf bifurcation. As an example, we consider a rigid two - dimensional airfoil that is supported by nonlinear springs in the pitch and plunge directions and subjected to nonlinear aerodynamic loads. We apply the center manifold theorem on the governing equations to derive its normal form that constitutes a simplified representation of the aeroelastic sys tem near flutter onset (manifestation of Hopf bifurcation). Then, we use the normal form to identify a self - excited oscillator governed by a time - delay ordinary differential equation that approximates the dynamical behavior while reducing the dimension of the original system. Results obtained from this oscillator show a great capability to predict properly limit cycle oscillations that take place beyond and above flutter as compared with the original aeroelastic system.

    We study fully three-dimensional droplets that slide down an incline employing a thin-film equation that accounts for capillarity, wettability and a lateral driving force in small-gradient (or long-wave) approximation. In particular, we focus on qualitative changes in the morphology and behavior of stationary sliding drops. We employ the inclination angle of the substrate as control parameter and use continuation techniques to analyze for several fixed droplet sizes the bifurcation diagram of stationary droplets, their linear stability and relevant eigenmodes. The obtained predictions on existence ranges and instabilities are tested via direct numerical simulations that are also used to investigate a branch of time-periodic behavior (corresponding to pearling-coalescence cycles) which emerges at a global instability, the related hysteresis in behavior and a period-doubling cascade. The non-trivial oscillatory behavior close to a Hopf bifurcation of drops with a finite-length tail is also studied. Finally, it ...

  3. Extraordinary behavioral entrainment following circadian rhythm bifurcation in mice.

    The mammalian circadian timing system uses light to synchronize endogenously generated rhythms with the environmental day. Entrainment to schedules that deviate significantly from 24 h (T24) has been viewed as unlikely because the circadian pacemaker appears capable only of small, incremental responses to brief light exposures. Challenging this view, we demonstrate that simple manipulations of light alone induce extreme plasticity in the circadian system of mice. Firstly, exposure to dim nocturnal illumination (entrainment. Continuation of dim light is unnecessary for T15/30 behavioral entrainment following bifurcation. Finally, neither dim light alone nor a shortened night is sufficient for the extraordinary entrainment observed under bifurcation. Thus, we demonstrate in a non-pharmacological, non-genetic manipulation that the circadian system is far more flexible than previously thought. These findings challenge the current conception of entrainment and its underlying principles, and reveal new potential targets for circadian interventions.

  4. Topological bifurcations in a model society of reasonable contrarians

    CERN Document Server

    Bagnoli, Franco

    2013-01-01

    People are often divided into conformists and contrarians, the former tending to align to the majority opinion in their neighborhood and the latter tending to disagree with that majority. In practice, however, the contrarian tendency is rarely followed when there is an overwhelming majority with a given opinion, which denotes a social norm. Such reasonable contrarian behavior is often considered a mark of independent thought, and can be a useful strategy in financial markets. We present the opinion dynamics of a society of reasonable contrarian agents. The model is a cellular automaton of Ising type, with antiferromagnetic pair interactions modeling contrarianism and plaquette terms modeling social norms. We introduce the entropy of the collective variable as a way of comparing deterministic (mean-field) and probabilistic (simulations) bifurcation diagrams. In the mean field approximation the model exhibits bifurcations and a chaotic phase, interpreted as coherent oscillations of the whole society. However, i...

    The diameter of columnar joints forming in cooling basalt and drying starch increases with decreasing growth rate. This observation can be reproduced with a linear-elastic three-dimensional fracture mechanics bifurcation analysis, which has been done for a periodic array of hexagonal columnar joints by considering a bifurcation mode compatible with observations on drying starch. In order to be applicable to basalt columns, the analysis has been carried out with simplified stationary temperature fields. The critical diameter differs from the one derived with a two-dimensional model by a mere factor of 1/2. By taking into account the latent heat released at the solidification front, the results agree fairly well with observed column diameters.

    Looking for new light sources,especially short wavelength laser light sources has attracted widespread attention.This paper analytically describes the radiation of a crystalline undulator field by the sine-squared potential.In the classical mechanics and the dipole approximation,the motion equation of a particle is reduced to a generalized pendulum equation with a damping term and a forcing term.The bifurcation behavior of periodic orbits is analyzed by using the Melnikov method and the numerical method,and the stability of the system is discussed.The results show that,in principle,the stability of the system relates to its parameters,and only by adjusting these parameters appropriately can the occurrence of bifurcation be avoided or suppressed.

    Full Text Available The remarkable properties of shape memory alloys have been motivating the interest in applications in different areas varying from biomedical to aerospace hardware. The dynamical response of systems composed by shape memory actuators presents nonlinear characteristics and a very rich behavior, showing periodic, quasi-periodic and chaotic responses. This contribution analyses some aspects related to bifurcation phenomenon in a shape memory oscillator where the restitution force is described by a polynomial constitutive model. The term bifurcation is used to describe qualitative changes that occur in the orbit structure of a system, as a consequence of parameter changes, being related to chaos. Numerical simulations show that the response of the shape memory oscillator presents period doubling cascades, direct and reverse, and crises.

    Objective Analyzing the nonlinear dynamics of the TCP-RED congestion control system is of great importance. This study will help investigate the loss of stability in Internet and design a proper method for controlling bifurcation and chaos in such system. Methods Based on bifurcation diagram, the effect of parameter on system performance is discussed. By using the state feedback and parameter variation strategy, a simple real time control method is proposed to modify the existing RED scheme. Results With our control method, the parametric sensitivity of RED mechanism is attenuated. Moreover, a sufficient condition on the robust stability of the system is also derived to adjust the parameters in TCP-RED system. Conclusion The proposed method has the advantages of simple implementation and unnecessary knowledge of the exact system.

    2014-12-01

    How social groups and organisms decide between alternative feeding sites or shelters has been extensively studied both experimentally and theoretically. One key result is the existence of a symmetry-breaking bifurcation at a critical system size, where there is a switch from evenly distributed exploitation of all options to a focussed exploitation of just one. Here we present a decision-making model in which symmetry-breaking is followed by a symmetry restoring bifurcation, whereby very large systems return to an even distribution of exploitation amongst options. The model assumes local positive feedback, coupled with a negative feedback regulating the flow toward the feeding sites. We show that the model is consistent with three different strains of the slime mold Physarum polycephalum, choosing between two feeding sites. We argue that this combination of feedbacks could allow collective foraging organisms to react flexibly in a dynamic environment.

    2016-10-01

    We study the dynamics of a system defined by the Navier-Stokes equations for a non-compressible fluid with Marangoni boundary conditions in the two-dimensional case. We show that more complicated bifurcations can appear in this system for a certain nonlinear temperature profile as compared to bifurcations in the classical Rayleigh-Bénard and Bénard-Marangoni systems with simple linear vertical temperature profiles. In terms of the Bénard-Marangoni convection, the obtained mathematical results lead to our understanding of complex spatial patterns at a free liquid surface, which can be induced by a complicated profile of temperature or a chemical concentration at that surface. In addition, we discuss some possible applications of the results to turbulence theory and climate science.

    We construct one-parameter families of solutions to the Einstein--Klein--Gordon equations bifurcating off the Kerr solution such that the underlying family of spacetimes are each an asymptotically flat, stationary, axisymmetric, black hole spacetime, and such that the corresponding scalar fields are non-zero and time-periodic. An immediate corollary is that for these Klein--Gordon masses, the Kerr family is not asymptotically stable as a solution to the Einstein--Klein--Gordon equations.

    A geometrically nonlinear analysis was proposed for the deformation of a freestanding elastically isotropic wafer caused by the surface stress change on one surface. Thelink between the curvature and the change in surface stress was obtained analytically fromenergetic consideration. In contrast to the existing linear analysis, a remarkableconsequence is that, when the wafer is very thin or the surface stress difference between thetwo major surfaces is large enough, the shape of the wafer will bifurcate.

    The inverted pendulum with a periodic parametric forcing is considered as a bifurcation problem in the reversible setting. Parameters are given by the size of the forcing and the frequency ratio. Normal form theory provides an integrable approximation of the Poincaré map generated by a planar vector field. Genericity of the model is studied by a perturbation analysis, where the spatial symmetry is optional. Here equivariant singularity theory is used.

    Bifurcation of the invariant curves of a difference equation is studied. The system defined by the difference equation is integrable , so the study of the invariant curves of the difference system can become the study of topological classification of the planar phase portraits defined by a planar Hamiltonian system. By strict qualitative analysis, the classification of the invariant curves in parameter space can be obtained.

    We study homoclinic bifurcation of limit cycles in perturbed planar Hamiltonian systems. Suppose that a homoclinic loop is defined by H =hs. Our main result is that a new method is established for computing the coefficients of the expansion of Melnikov functions at h =hs. Then by using those coefficients, more limit cycles would be found around homoclinic loops. An example is also provided to illustrate our method.

    Full Text Available We study a family of singularly perturbed ODEs with one parameter and compare their solutions to the ones of the corresponding reduced equations. The interesting characteristic here is that the reduced equations have more than one solution for a given set of initial conditions. Then we consider how those solutions are organized for different values of the parameter. The bifurcation associated to this situation is studied using a minimal set of tools from non standard analysis.

    1996-01-01

    A computer model of a three-dimensional bifurcating airway was constructed in which the parent and daughter airways had different lengths but equal diameters. A diameter of 0.6 cm was chosen for the airways based on the third generation of Weibel's symmetric lung model. Different bifurcation angles of 60 degrees, 90 degrees, and 120 degrees were studied. Airflow fields in the airway were obtained by a finite-element method (FIDAP, Fluid Dynamics International, Evanston, IL) for Reynolds numbers of 500 and 1000, assuming uniform parent inlet velocities. The equations of motion for fiber transport in the airways were obtained, and deposition by the combined mechanisms of impaction and interception was incorporated. A computer code was developed that utilized the flow field data and calculated fiber transport in the airways using the equations of motion for fibers. Deposition efficiency was obtained by simulating a large number of fibers of various sizes. Fiber entering the daughter airways tended to orient themselves parallel to the flow. A site of enhanced deposition (or hot spot) was observed at the carina. The dominant parameter for the deposition was the fiber Stokes number. Flow Reynolds number and airway bifurcation angle were also found to affect the deposition.

    The subject of fluid dynamics within human airways is of great importance for the risk assessment of air pollutants (inhalation toxicology) and the targeted delivery of inhaled pharmacologic drugs (aerosol therapy). As cited herein, experimental investigations of flow patterns have been performed on airway models and casts by a number of investigators. We have simulated flow patterns in human lung bifurcations and compared the results with the experimental data of Schreck (1972). The theoretical analyses were performed using a third-party software package, FIDAP, on the Cray T90 supercomputer. This effort is part of a systematic investigation where the effects of inlet conditions, Reynolds numbers, and dimensions and orientations of airways were addressed. This article focuses on primary flows using convective motion and isovelocity contour formats to describe fluid dynamics; subsequent articles in this issue consider secondary currents (Part II) and localized conditions (Part III). The agreement between calculated and measured results, for laminar flows with either parabolic or blunt inlet conditions to the bifurcations, was very good. To our knowledge, this work is the first to present such detailed comparisons of theoretical and experimental flow patterns in airway bifurcations. The agreement suggests that the methodologies can be employed to study factors affecting airflow patterns and particle behavior in human lungs.

    Forecasting bifurcations such as critical transitions is an active research area of relevance to the management and preservation of ecological systems. In particular, anticipating the distance to critical transitions remains a challenge, together with predicting the state of the system after these transitions are breached. In this work, a new model-less method is presented that addresses both these issues based on monitoring recoveries from large perturbations. The approach uses data from recoveries of the system from at least two separate parameter values before the critical point, to predict both the bifurcation and the post-bifurcation dynamics. The proposed method is demonstrated, and its performance evaluated under different levels of measurement noise, with two ecological models that have been used extensively in previous studies of tipping points and alternative steady states. The first one considers the dynamics of vegetation under grazing; the second, those of macrophyte and phytoplankton in shallow lakes. Applications of the method to more complex situations are discussed together with the kinds of empirical data needed for its implementation.

    2006-10-01

    Effects of participant-target distance and perceived handstriking efficiency on emergent behavior in the martial art of boxing were investigated, revealing affordance-controlled nonlinear dynamical effects (i.e. bifurcations) within the participant--target system. Results established the existence of critical values of scaled distances for emergence of first time excitations and annihilations of a diverse range of boxing actions i.e. on the appearance and dissolution of jabs, hooks and uppercuts. Reasons for the action diversity were twofold: (a) topological discontinuous changes (bifurcations) in the number of possible handstrikes, i.e. motor solutions to the hitting task; (b) fine modification of probabilities of emergence of striking patterns. Exploitation of a 'strikeability' affordance available in scaled distance-to-target information by boxers led to a diversity of emergent actions through a cascade of bifurcations in the task perceptual-motor work space. Data suggested that perceived efficiency (E) of an action changed as a function of scaled distance (D) and was correlated with the probability of occurrence of action patterns (P), exhibiting the following dependence P = P(E(D)). The implication is that probability of occurrence (P) depends on efficiency (E), which in turn depends on scaled distance (D) to the target. Accordingly, scaled distance-dependent perceived efficiency seems a viable candidate for a contextual (control) parameter to describe the nonlinear dynamics of striking actions in boxing.

    2010-09-01

    Full Text Available Many applications give rise to separable parameterized equations of the form $A(y, muz+b(y, mu=0$, where $y in mathbb{R}^n$, $z in mathbb{R}^N$ and the parameter $mu in mathbb{R}$; here $A(y, mu$ is an $(N+n imes N$ matrix and $b(y, mu in mathbb{R}^{N+n}$. Under the assumption that $A(y,mu$ has full rank we showed in [21] that bifurcation points can be located by solving a reduced equation of the form $f(y, mu=0$. In this paper we extend that method to the case that $A(y,mu$ has rank deficiency one at the bifurcation point. At such a point the solution curve $(y,mu,z$ branches into infinitely many additional solutions, which form a straight line. A numerical method for reducing the problem to a smaller space and locating such a bifurcation point is given. Applications to equilibrium solutions of nonlinear ordinary equations and solutions of discretized partial differential equations are provided.

  11. Numerical bifurcation analysis of the bipedal spring-mass model

    2015-01-01

    The spring-mass model and its numerous extensions are currently one of the best candidates for templates of human and animal locomotion. However, with increasing complexity, their applications can become very time-consuming. In this paper, we present an approach that is based on the calculation of bifurcations in the bipedal spring-mass model for walking. Since the bifurcations limit the region of stable walking, locomotion can be studied by computing the corresponding boundaries. Originally, the model was implemented as a hybrid dynamical system. Our new approach consists of the transformation of the series of initial value problems on different intervals into a single boundary value problem. Using this technique, discontinuities can be avoided and sophisticated numerical methods for studying parametrized nonlinear boundary value problems can be applied. Thus, appropriate extended systems are used to compute transcritical and period-doubling bifurcation points as well as turning points. We show that the resulting boundary value problems can be solved by the simple shooting method with sufficient accuracy, making the application of the more extensive multiple shooting superfluous. The proposed approach is fast, robust to numerical perturbations and allows determining complete manifolds of periodic solutions of the original problem.

    2014-01-01

    A fan casing model of cantilever circular thin shell is constructed based on the geometric characteristics of the thin-walled structure of aero-engine fan casing. According to Donnelly’s shell theory and Hamilton’s principle, the dynamic equations are established. The dynamic behaviors are investigated by a multiple-scale method. The effects of casing geometric parameters and motion parameters on the natural frequency of the system are studied. The transition sets and bifurcation diagrams of the system are obtained through a singularity analysis of the bifurcation equation, showing that various modes of the system such as the bifurcation and hysteresis will appear in different parameter regions. In accordance with the multiple relationship of the fan speed and stator vibration frequency, the fan speed interval with the casing vibration sudden jump is calculated. The dynamic reasons of casing cracks are investigated. The possibility of casing cracking hysteresis interval is analyzed. The results show that cracking is more likely to appear in the hysteresis interval. The research of this paper provides a theoretical basis for fan casing design and system parameter optimization.

    The nature of the fixed points of the compound logistic map is researched and the boundary equation of the first bifurcation of the map in the parameter space is given out. Using the quantitative criterion and rule of chaotic system, the paper reveal the general features of the compound logistic map transforming from regularity to chaos, the following conclusions are shown: (1) chaotic patterns of the map may emerge out of double-periodic bifurcation and (2) the chaotic crisis phenomena and the reverse bifurcation are found. At the same time, we analyze the orbit of critical point of the compound logistic map and put forward the definition of Mandelbrot-Julia set of compound logistic map. We generalize the Welstead and Cromer's periodic scanning technology and using this technology construct a series of Mandelbrot-Julia sets of compound logistic map. We investigate the symmetry of Mandelbrot-Julia set and study the topological inflexibility of distributing of period region in the Mandelbrot set, and finds that Mandelbrot set contain abundant information of structure of Julia sets by founding the whole portray of Julia sets based on Mandelbrot set qualitatively.

    This book is devoted to bifurcation theory for autonomous and nonautonomous differential equations with discontinuities of different types. That is, those with jumps present either in the right-hand-side or in trajectories or in the arguments of solutions of equations. The results obtained in this book can be applied to various fields such as neural networks, brain dynamics, mechanical systems, weather phenomena, population dynamics, etc. Without any doubt, bifurcation theory should be further developed to different types of differential equations. In this sense, the present book will be a leading one in this field.

  15. Interannual-to-Decadal Variability in the Bifurcation of the North Equatorial Current off the Philippines

    Science.gov (United States)

    Qiu, B.; Chen, S.

    2010-12-01

    Satellite altimeter sea surface height (SSH) data from the past 17 years are used to investigate the interannual-to-decadal changes in the bifurcation of the North Equatorial Current (NEC) along the Philippine coast. The NEC bifurcation latitude migrated quasi-decadally between 10N and 15N with northerly bifurcations observed in late 1992, 1997-98 and 2003-04, and southerly bifurcations in 1999-2000 and 2008-09. The observed NEC bifurcation latitude can be approximated well by the SSH anomalies in the 12-14N and 127-130E box east of the mean NEC bifurcation point. Using a 1.5-layer reduced-gravity model forced by the ECMWF reanalysis wind stress data, we find that the SSH anomalies in this box can be simulated favorably to serve as a proxy for the observed NEC bifurcation. With the availability of the long-term reanalysis wind stress data, this allows us to lengthen the NEC bifurcation time series back to 1962. Although quasi-decadal variability was prominent in the last two decades, the NEC bifurcation was dominated by changes with a 3~5-yr period during the 1980s and had low variance prior to the 1970s. These inter-decadal modulations in the characteristics of the NEC bifurcation reflect similar inter-decadal modulations in the wind forcing field over the western tropical North Pacific Ocean. Although the NEC bifurcation on the interannual and longer timescales is in general related to the Nino-3.4 index with a positive (negative) index corresponding to a northerly (southerly) bifurcation, the exact location of bifurcation is determined by wind forcing in the 12-14N band that contains variability not fully representable by the Nino-3.4 index.

  16. Bifurcations and dynamo action in a Taylor Green flow

    We report successive bifurcations in direct numerical simulations (DNSs) of a Taylor-Green flow, in both a hydro- and a magneto-hydrodynamic case. Hydrodynamic bifurcations occur in between different metastable states with different dynamo action, and are triggered by the numerical noise. The various states encountered range from stationary to chaotic or turbulent through possible oscillatory states. The corresponding sequence of bifurcations is reminiscent of the sequence obtained in the von Karman (VK) flow, at aspect ratio Γ=2 (Nore et al 2003 J. Fluid Mech. 477 51). We then use kinematic simulations to compute the dynamo thresholds of the different metastable states. A more detailed study of the turbulent state reveals the existence of two windows of dynamo action. Stochastic numerical simulations are then used to mimic the influence of turbulence on the dynamo threshold of the turbulent state. We show that the dynamo threshold is increased (respectively decreased) by the presence of large scale (resp. small scale) turbulent velocity fluctuations. Finally, DNSs of the magneto-hydrodynamic equations are used to explore the linear and nonlinear stage of the dynamo instability. In the linear stage, we show that the magnetic field favours the bifurcation from the basic state directly towards the turbulent or chaotic stable state. The magnetic field can also temporarily stabilize a metastable state, resulting in cycles of dynamo action, with different Lyapunov exponents. The critical magnetic Reynolds number for dynamo action is found to increase strongly with the Reynolds number. Finally, we provide a preliminary study of the saturation regime above the dynamo threshold. At large magnetic Prandtl number, we have observed two main types of saturations, in agreement with an analytical prediction of Leprovost and Dubrulle (2005 Eur. Phys. J. B 44 395): (i) intermittent dynamo, with vanishing most probable value of the magnetic energy; (ii) dynamo with non vanishing

  17. The Flatness of Bifurcations in 3D Dendritic Trees: An Optimal Design.

    The geometry of natural branching systems generally reflects functional optimization. A common property is that their bifurcations are planar and that daughter segments do not turn back in the direction of the parent segment. The present study investigates whether this also applies to bifurcations in 3D dendritic arborizations. This question was earlier addressed in a first study of flatness of 3D dendritic bifurcations by Uylings and Smit (1975), who used the apex angle of the right circular cone as flatness measure. The present study was inspired by recent renewed interest in this measure. Because we encountered ourselves shortcomings of this cone angle measure, the search for an optimal measure for flatness of 3D bifurcation was the second aim of our study. Therefore, a number of measures has been developed in order to quantify flatness and orientation properties of spatial bifurcations. All these measures have been expressed mathematically in terms of the three bifurcation angles between the three pairs of segments in the bifurcation. The flatness measures have been applied and evaluated to bifurcations in rat cortical pyramidal cell basal and apical dendritic trees, and to random spatial bifurcations. Dendritic and random bifurcations show significant different flatness measure distributions, supporting the conclusion that dendritic bifurcations are significantly more flat than random bifurcations. Basal dendritic bifurcations also show the property that their parent segments are generally aligned oppositely to the bisector of the angle between their daughter segments, resulting in "symmetrical" configurations. Such geometries may arise when during neuronal development the segments at a newly formed bifurcation are subjected to elastic tensions, which force the bifurcation into an equilibrium planar shape. Apical bifurcations, however, have parent segments oppositely aligned with one of the daughter segments. These geometries arise in the case of side

    Highlights: > Stability and Hopf bifurcation on a delayed Goodwin model are studied. > The sum of the delays is chosen as the bifurcation parameter. > Hopf bifurcation would occur when the delay exceeds a critical value. > A numerical simulation is provided. - Abstract: In this paper, a class of Goodwin models with three delays is dealt. The dynamic properties including stability and Hopf bifurcations are studied. Firstly, we prove analytically that the addressed system possesses a unique positive equilibrium point. Moreover, using the Cardano's formula for the third degree algebra equation, the distribution of characteristic roots is proposed. And then, the sum of the delays is chosen as the bifurcation parameter and it is demonstrated that the Hopf bifurcation would occur when the delay exceeds a critical value. Finally, a numerical simulation for justifying the theoretical results is also provided.

  19. Bifurcations in a Seasonally Forced Predator-Prey Model with Generalized Holling Type IV Functional Response

    Science.gov (United States)

    Ren, Jingli; Li, Xueping

    A seasonally forced predator-prey system with generalized Holling type IV functional response is considered in this paper. The influence of seasonal forcing on the system is investigated via numerical bifurcation analysis. Bifurcation diagrams for periodic solutions of periods one and two, containing bifurcation curves of codimension one and bifurcation points of codimension two, are obtained by means of a continuation technique, corresponding to different bifurcation cases of the unforced system illustrated in five bifurcation diagrams. The seasonally forced model exhibits more complex dynamics than the unforced one, such as stable and unstable periodic solutions of various periods, stable and unstable quasiperiodic solutions, and chaotic motions through torus destruction or cascade of period doublings. Finally, some phase portraits and corresponding Poincaré map portraits are given to illustrate these different types of solutions.

    Piece-wise smooth systems are an important class of ordinary differential equations whosedynamics are known to exhibit complex bifurcation scenarios and chaos. Broadly speaking,piece-wise smooth systems can undergo all the bifurcation that smooth ones can. Moreinterestingly, there is a whole class of bifurcation that are unique to piece-wise smoothsystems, such as the bifurcation caused by the geometric shape of the region in which thevector field is analyzed. For example (see Figure 1), the region is divided into two partsI and Ⅱ by a discontinuity boundary which contains a corner at O. When an orbit crossthe corner, border-collision bifurcation may occur (cf. [1]). The present paper deals withthe mechanics of the generalized Hopf bifurcation when the stationary point locates at thecorner.

  1. Pitchfork bifurcation and vibrational resonance in a fractional-order Duffing oscillator

    Indian Academy of Sciences (India)

    J H Yang; M A F Sanjuán; W Xiang; H Zhu

    2013-12-01

    The pitchfork bifurcation and vibrational resonance are studied in a fractional-order Duffing oscillator with delayed feedback and excited by two harmonic signals. Using an approximation method, the bifurcation behaviours and resonance patterns are predicted. Supercritical and subcritical pitchfork bifurcations can be induced by the fractional-order damping, the exciting highfrequency signal and the delayed time. The fractional-order damping mainly determines the pattern of the vibrational resonance. There is a bifurcation point of the fractional order which, in the case of double-well potential, transforms vibrational resonance pattern from a single resonance to a double resonance, while in the case of single-well potential, transforms vibrational resonance from no resonance to a single resonance. The delayed time influences the location of the vibrational resonance and the bifurcation point of the fractional order. Pitchfork bifurcation is the necessary condition for the double resonance. The theoretical predictions are in good agreement with the numerical simulations.

  2. Codimension-Two Bifurcation Analysis in DC Microgrids Under Droop Control

    Science.gov (United States)

    Lenz, Eduardo; Pagano, Daniel J.; Tahim, André P. N.

    This paper addresses local and global bifurcations that may appear in electrical power systems, such as DC microgrids, which recently has attracted interest from the electrical engineering society. Most sources in these networks are voltage-type and operate in parallel. In such configuration, the basic technique for stabilizing the bus voltage is the so-called droop control. The main contribution of this work is a codimension-two bifurcation analysis of a small DC microgrid considering the droop control gain and the power processed by the load as bifurcation parameters. The codimension-two bifurcation set leads to practical rules for achieving a robust droop control design. Moreover, the bifurcation analysis also offers a better understanding of the dynamics involved in the problem and how to avoid possible instabilities. Simulation results are presented in order to illustrate the bifurcation analysis.

    2017-01-01

    Full Text Available A discrete-time parasite-host system with bifurcation is investigated in detail in this paper. The existence and stability of nonnegative fixed points are explored and the conditions for the existence of flip bifurcation and Neimark-Sacker bifurcation are derived by using the center manifold theorem and bifurcation theory. And we also prove the chaos in the sense of Marotto. The numerical simulations not only illustrate the consistence with the theoretical analysis, but also exhibit other complex dynamical behaviors, such as bifurcation diagrams, Maximum Lyapunov exponents, and phase portraits. More specifically, when the integral step size is chosen as a bifurcation parameter, this paper presents the finding of period orbits, attracting invariant cycles and chaotic attractors of the discrete-time parasite-host system. Specifically, we have stabilized the chaotic orbits at an unstable fixed point by using the feedback control method.

    A 69-year-old man, who had earlier undergone reconstruction of the aortic bifurcation with kissing nitinol stents, presented with occlusion of the left external iliac artery. The occlusion was successfully and safely recanalized using contralateral femoral approach with passage of interventional hardware through the struts of the stents in the aortic bifurcation. Presence of contemporary flexible nitinol stents with open-cell design in the aortic bifurcation is not a contraindication to the use of the contralateral femoral approach.

    Crack initiation under dynamic loading conditions is studied under the framework of dynamic bifurcation theory. An atomistic model for BCC iron is considered to explicitly take into account the detailed molecular interactions. To understand the strain-rate dependence of the crack initiation process, we first obtain the bifurcation diagram from a computational procedure using continuation methods. The stability transition associated with a crack initiation, as well as the connection to the bifurcation diagram, is studied by comparing direct numerical results to the dynamic bifurcation theory [R. Haberman, SIAM J. Appl. Math. 37, 69–106 (1979)].

  12. Practical aspects of backward bifurcation in a mathematical model for tuberculosis.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Gerberry, David J

    2016-01-01

    In this work, we examine practical aspects of backward bifurcation for a data-based model of tuberculosis that incorporates multiple features which have previously been shown to produce backward bifurcation (e.g. exogenous reinfection and imperfect vaccination) and new considerations such as the treatment of latent TB infection (LTBI) and the BCG vaccine's interference with detecting LTBI. Understanding the interplay between these multiple factors and backward bifurcation is particularly timely given that new diagnostic tests for LTBI detection could dramatically increase rates of both LTBI detection and vaccination in the coming decades. By establishing analytic thresholds for the existence of backward bifurcation, we identify those aspects of TB's complicated pathology that make backward bifurcation more or less likely to occur. We also examine the magnitude of the backward bifurcation produced by the model and its sensitivity to various model parameters. We find that backward bifurcation is unlikely to occur. While increased vaccine coverage and/or increased detection and treatment of LTBI can push the threshold for backward bifurcation into the region of biological plausibility, the resulting bifurcations may still be too small to have any noticeable epidemiological impact.

    Nonlinear dynamical systems are sometimes under the influence of random fluctuations.It is desirable to examine possible bifurcations for stochastic dynamical systems when a parameter varies.@@A computational analysis is conducted to investigate bifurcations of a simple dynamical system under non-Gaussian α-stable Lévy motions,by examining the changes in stationary probability density functions for the solution orbits of this stochastic system.The stationary probability density functions are obtained by solving a nonlocal Fokker-Planck equation numerically.This allows numerically investigating phenomenological bifurcation,or P-bifurcation,for stochastic differential equations with non-Gaussian Lévy noises.

    To investigate the longitudinal motion stability of aircraft maneuvers conveniently,a new stability analysis approach is presented in this paper.Based on describing longitudinal aerodynamics at high angle-of-attack (α < 50°) motion by polynomials,a union structure of two-order differential equation is suggested.By means of nonlinear theory and method,analytical and global bifurcation analyses of the polynomial differential systems are provided for the study of the nonlinear phenomena of high angle-of-attack flight.Applying the theories of bifurcations,many kinds of bifurcations,such as equilibrium,Hopf,homoclinic (heteroclinic) orbit and double limit cycle bifurcations are discussed and the existence conditions for these bifurcations as well as formulas for calculating bifurcation curves are derived.The bifurcation curves divide the parameter plane into several regions; moreover,the complete bifurcation diagrams and phase portraits in different regions are obtained.Finally,our conclusions are applied to analyzing the stability and bifurcations of a practical example of a high angle-of-attack flight as well as the effects of elevator deflection on the asymptotic stability regions of equilibrium.The model and analytical methods presented in this paper can be used to study the nonlinear flight dynamic of longitudinal stall at high angle of attack.

    Under the periodic boundary condition,dynamic bifurcation and stability in the modified Kuramoto-Sivashinsky equation with a higher-order nonlinearity p(ux)Puxx are investigated by using the centre manifold reduction procedure.The result shows that as the control parameter crosses a critical value,the system undergoes a bifurcation from the trivial solution to produce a cycle consisting of locally asymptotically stable equilibrium points. Furthermore,for cases in which the distances to the bifurcation points are small enough,one-order approximations to the bifurcation solutions are obtained.

    rigorously how singular canards can persist and how the bifurcation of pseudo-equilibria is related to bifurcations of equilibria in the regularized system. We also show that PWS limit cycles are connected to Hopf bifurcations of the regularization. In addition, we show how regularization can create another...... type of limit cycle that does not appear to be present in the original PWS system. For both types of limit cycle, we show that the criticality of the Hopf bifurcation that gives rise to periodic orbits is strongly dependent on the precise form of the regularization. Finally, we analyse the limit cycles...

    The influences of Casimir and van der Waals forces on the nano-electromechanical systems (NEMS) electrostatic torsional varactor are studied. A one degree of freedom, the torsional angle, is adopted, and the bifurcation behaviour of the NEMS torsional varactor is investigated. There are two bifurcation points, one of which is a Hopf bifurcation point and the other is an unstable saddle point. The phase portraits are also drawn, in which periodic orbits are around the Hopf bifurcation point, but the periodic orbit will break into a homoclinic orbit when meeting the unstable saddle point.

    2012-04-13

    A bifurcation analysis of dune shape transition is made. By use of a reduced model of dune morphodynamics, the Dune Skeleton model, we elucidate the transition mechanism between different shapes of dunes under unidirectional wind. It was found that the decrease in the total amount of sand in the system and/or the lateral sand flow shifts the stable state from a straight transverse dune to a wavy transverse dune through a pitchfork bifurcation. A further decrease causes wavy transverse dunes to shift into barchans through a Hopf bifurcation. These bifurcation structures reveal the transition mechanism of dune shapes under unidirectional wind.

  20. Delayed Hopf bifurcation in time-delayed slow-fast systems

    Institute of Scientific and Technical Information of China (English)

    2010-01-01

    This paper presents an investigation on the phenomenon of delayed bifurcation in time-delayed slow-fast differential systems.Here the two delayed’s have different meanings.The delayed bifurcation means that the bifurcation does not happen immediately at the bifurcation point as the bifurcation parameter passes through some bifurcation point,but at some other point which is above the bifurcation point by an obvious distance.In a time-delayed system,the evolution of the system depends not only on the present state but also on past states.In this paper,the time-delayed slow-fast system is firstly simplified to a slow-fast system without time delay by means of the center manifold reduction,and then the so-called entry-exit function is defined to characterize the delayed bifurcation on the basis of Neishtadt’s theory.It shows that delayed Hopf bifurcation exists in time-delayed slow-fast systems,and the theoretical prediction on the exit-point is in good agreement with the numerical calculation,as illustrated in the two illustrative examples.

    2014-01-01

    Full Text Available A class of Lotka-Volterra mutualistic system with time delays of benefit and feedback delays is introduced. By analyzing the associated characteristic equation, the local stability of the positive equilibrium and existence of Hopf bifurcation are obtained under all possible combinations of two or three delays selecting from multiple delays. Not only explicit formulas to determine the properties of the Hopf bifurcation are shown by using the normal form method and center manifold theorem, but also the global continuation of Hopf bifurcation is investigated by applying a global Hopf bifurcation result due to Wu (1998. Numerical simulations are given to support the theoretical results.

    2011-03-01

    The stability and bifurcation in a voltage controlled negative-output KY Boost converter is studied in this Letter. A glimpse at the stability and bifurcation from the power electronics simulator (PSIM) software are given. And then, its mathematical model and corresponding discrete model are derived. The stability and bifurcation of the converter are determined with the help of the loci of eigenvalues of the Jacobian matrix. It is found that the Hopf bifurcation is easy to come in this converter when the value of its energy-transferring capacitor increases. Finally, the analytical results are confirmed by the circuit experiment.

    Non-smooth saddle-node bifurcations give rise to minimal sets of interesting geometry built of so-called strange non-chaotic attractors. We show that certain families of quasiperiodically driven logistic differential equations undergo a non-smooth bifurcation. By a previous result on the occurrence of non-smooth bifurcations in forced discrete time dynamical systems, this yields that within the class of families of quasiperiodically driven differential equations, non-smooth saddle-node bifurcations occur in a set with non-empty C2-interior.

    2007-01-01

    This paper focuses on the delay induced Hopf bifurcation in a dual model of Internet congestion control algorithms which can be modeled as a time-delay system described by a one-order delay differential equation (DDE). By choosing communication delay as the bifurcation parameter, we demonstrate that the system loses its stability and a Hopf bifurcation occurs when communication delay passes through a critical value. Moreover, the bifurcating periodic solution of system is calculated by means of perturbation methods. Discussion of stability of the periodic solutions involves the computation of Floquet exponents by considering the corresponding Poincare -Lindstedt series expansion. Finally, numerical simulations for verify the theoretical analysis are provided.

    Based on a bifurcation analysis of a process it is possible to point out where there might be operational problems due to change of stability of the process. One such change is investigated, Fold bifurcations. This type of bifurcation is associated with hysteresis/multiple steady states, which...... complicates operation close to these bifurcations. Typically only one of the steady states is interesting from a production point of view. A novel control law is proposed herein which is able to cope with the operational problems of the process....

    Leonel Rocha, J.; Taha, Abdel-Kaddous; Fournier-Prunaret, D.

    2016-06-01

    The main purpose of this work is to study the dynamics and bifurcation properties of generic growth functions, which are defined by the population size functions of the generic growth equation. This family of unimodal maps naturally incorporates a principal focus of ecological and biological research: the Allee effect. The analysis of this kind of extinction phenomenon allows to identify a class of Allee’s functions and characterize the corresponding Allee’s effect region and Allee’s bifurcation curve. The bifurcation analysis is founded on the performance of fold and flip bifurcations. The dynamical behavior is rich with abundant complex bifurcation structures, the big bang bifurcations of the so-called “box-within-a-box” fractal type being the most outstanding. Moreover, these bifurcation cascades converge to different big bang bifurcation curves with distinct kinds of boxes, where for the corresponding parameter values several attractors are associated. To the best of our knowledge, these results represent an original contribution to clarify the big bang bifurcation analysis of continuous 1D maps.

    The various techniques and devices that have been proposed for the treatment of coronary bifurcation lesions have differing levels of complexity and each has one or more limitations. Two highly complementary ex vivo methods are available to study the treatment of bifurcation lesions: in vitro and virtual bench testing. Both methods can be used to develop, evaluate and optimise bifurcation stenting techniques and dedicated devices. The basics, the evolution, the advantages and limitations of both methods are discussed in this paper. Subsequently, a literature overview of the main insights gained from ex vivo testing in the field of bifurcation stenting is given.

  9. Bifurcation analysis and stability design for aircraft longitudinal motion with high angle of attack

    2015-01-01

    Bifurcation analysis and stability design for aircraft longitudinal motion are investigated when the nonlinearity in flight dynamics takes place severely at high angle of attack regime. To pre-dict the special nonlinear flight phenomena, bifurcation theory and continuation method are employed to systematically analyze the nonlinear motions. With the refinement of the flight dynam-ics for F-8 Crusader longitudinal motion, a framework is derived to identify the stationary bifurca-tion and dynamic bifurcation for high-dimensional system. Case study shows that the F-8 longitudinal motion undergoes saddle node bifurcation, Hopf bifurcation, Zero-Hopf bifurcation and branch point bifurcation under certain conditions. Moreover, the Hopf bifurcation renders ser-ies of multiple frequency pitch oscillation phenomena, which deteriorate the flight control stability severely. To relieve the adverse effects of these phenomena, a stabilization control based on gain scheduling and polynomial fitting for F-8 longitudinal motion is presented to enlarge the flight envelope. Simulation results validate the effectiveness of the proposed scheme.

  10. Applications of Bifurcation Methods to F-181HARV Open-loop Dynamics in Landing Configuration

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Nandan Kumar Sinha

    2002-04-01

    Full Text Available Over the past two decades, bifurcation and continuation methods have emerged as efficient tools for prediction, and control of flight instabilities. Bifurcation phenomena have been associated with nonlinear behaviour of aircraft in actual flight tests, and the critical control combinations, which signify onset of instabilities, have been identified for almost all generations of modern fighter aircraft. A standard bifurcation analysis procedure has been used in the past. In this paper, the bifurcation theory, relevant to preliminary bifurcation analysis of nonlinear aircraft dynamics, has been introduced, and a stepswise methodology used in a standard bifurcation analysis procedure has been illustrated with an application to open-loop dynamics of an F- 18/HARV model in landing configuration. Further, an example manoeuvre is constructed, and numerical time simulations of an F-18/HARV model in this manoeuvre is carried out to validate the predictions from the bifurcation analysis. Numerical time simulation results confirm the onset of nonlinear behaviour at critical control combinations identified in bifurcation analysis of the aircraft model. Thus, bifurcation methods, in conjunction with selective numerical simulations, can be extremely useful in the design, development, evaluation, and flight training phases of a fighter aircraft development programme.

    2014-01-01

    We present flow-based results from the early stage design cycle, based on computational modeling, of a prototype flow-diverter device, known as the 'Sphere', intended to treat bifurcation aneurysms of the cerebral vasculature. The device is available in a range of diameters and geometries and is constructed from a single loop of NITINOL(®) wire. The 'Sphere' reduces aneurysm inflow by means of a high-density, patterned, elliptical surface that partially occludes the aneurysm neck. The device is secured in the healthy parent vessel by two armatures in the shape of open loops, resulting in negligible disruption of parent or daughter vessel flow. The device is virtually deployed in six anatomically accurate bifurcation aneurysms: three located at the Basilar tip and three located at the terminus bifurcation of the Internal Carotid artery (at the meeting of the middle cerebral and anterior cerebral arteries). Both steady state and transient flow simulations reveal that the device presents with a range of aneurysm inflow reductions, with mean flow reductions falling in the range of 30.6-71.8% across the different geometries. A significant difference is noted between steady state and transient simulations in one geometry, where a zone of flow recirculation is not captured in the steady state simulation. Across all six aneurysms, the device reduces the WSS magnitude within the aneurysm sac, resulting in a hemodynamic environment closer to that of a healthy vessel. We conclude from extensive CFD analysis that the 'Sphere' device offers very significant levels of flow reduction in a number of anatomically accurate aneurysm sizes and locations, with many advantages compared to current clinical cylindrical flow-diverter designs. Analysis of the device's mechanical properties and deployability will follow in future publications.

    First-principles numerical simulations are used to describe a transport bifurcation in a differentially rotating tokamak plasma. Such a bifurcation is more probable in a region of zero magnetic shear than one of finite magnetic shear, because in the former case the component of the sheared toroidal flow that is perpendicular to the magnetic field has the strongest suppressing effect on the turbulence. In the zero-magnetic-shear regime, there are no growing linear eigenmodes at any finite value of flow shear. However, subcritical turbulence can be sustained, owing to the existence of modes, driven by the ion temperature gradient and the parallel velocity gradient, which grow transiently. Nonetheless, in a parameter space containing a wide range of temperature gradients and velocity shears, there is a sizeable window where all turbulence is suppressed. Combined with the relatively low transport of momentum by collisional (neoclassical) mechanisms, this produces the conditions for a bifurcation from low to high temperature and velocity gradients. A parametric model is constructed which accurately describes the combined effect of the temperature gradient and the flow gradient over a wide range of their values. Using this parametric model, it is shown that in the reduced-transport state, heat is transported almost neoclassically, while momentum transport is dominated by subcritical parallel-velocity-gradient-driven turbulence. It is further shown that for any given input of torque, there is an optimum input of heat which maximises the temperature gradient. The parametric model describes both the behaviour of the subcritical turbulence (which cannot be modelled by the quasi-linear methods used in current transport codes) and the complicated effect of the flow shear on the transport stiffness. It may prove useful for transport modelling of tokamaks with sheared flows.

    The ΔE effect in certain field annealed amorphous ribbon is now about 10, i.e., Young's modulus E, can be reversibly changed by a factor of 9 with the application of a field of less than 1 Oe. We have reported the field-induced buckling of a vertically oriented ribbon. The ribbon buckles under its own weight due to the reduction of E with field H. Critical buckling values of H were found to be in good agreement with the eigenvalues of the linearized version of the operator describing the process. Here we present: (a) holographic data where the gradient in the fringe spacing obtained from the hologram of the straight and buckled states is a measure of the curvature; and (b) a rigorous mathematical formalism for extracting from experiment the nonlinear constitutive relation between the curvature θ'(s) and the bending couple m(s) where s is the distance along the ribbon. This process must be carried out (with H as a parameter) from H=0, to values of H somewhat above the anisotropy field, to effect a complete description of the magnetoelastic behavior. In dynamic experiments where the ribbon is driven by H=H0+h sin ωt we observe a subharmonic bifurcation (parametric resonance) when ω is about twice the half-wavelength elastic resonance frequency and h exceeds a threshold value governed by the magnitude of ∂E/∂H. Other, more complicated bifurcations are seen as h is increased further. We show the nonlinear equation of motion with damping to explain the bifurcation structure.

    This work describes the bifurcational behavior of a modular peak current-mode controlled DC-DC boost converter with multi bifurcation parameters. The parallel-input/parallel-output converter consists of two identical boost circuits and operates in the continuous-current conduction mode (CCM). A nonlinear mapping in closed form is derived and bifurcation diagrams are generated using MATLAB. A comparison is made between the modular converter diagrams with those of the single boost converter. The effect of introducing mutual coupling between the inductors of the constituent modules is also addressed. Results are verified using the circuit analysis package PSPICE.

    2005-12-01

    In recent years, a large number of mathematical models that are described by delay differential equations (DDEs) have appeared in the life sciences. To analyze the models' dynamics, numerical methods are necessary, since analytical studies can only give limited results. In turn, the availability of efficient numerical methods and software packages encourages the use of time delays in mathematical modelling, which may lead to more realistic models. We outline recently developed numerical methods for bifurcation analysis of DDEs and illustrate the use of these methods in the analysis of a mathematical model of human hepatitis B virus infection.

    The dynamics and bifurcations of convective waves in rotating and buoyancy-driven spherical Rayleigh-Bénard convection are investigated numerically. The solution branches that arise as rotating waves (RWs) are traced by means of path-following methods, by varying the Rayleigh number as a control parameter for different rotation rates. The dependence of the azimuthal drift frequency of the RWs on the Ekman and Rayleigh numbers is determined and discussed. The influence of the rotation rate on the generation and stability of secondary branches is demonstrated. Multistability is typical in the parameter range considered.

    In this paper, the statistical properties of an interval map, having a square-root singular point which characterizes grazing bifurcations of impact oscillators, are studied. Firstly, we show that in some parameter regions the map admits an induced Markov structure with an exponential decay tail of the return times. Then we prove that the map has a unique mixing absolutely continuous invariant probability measure. Finally, by applying the Markov tower method, we prove that exponential decay of correlations and the central limit theorem hold for Hölder continuous observations.

    2016-04-01

    We study nonoscillating bifurcations of nonhomogeneous steady states of the Vlasov equation, a situation occurring in galactic models, or for Bernstein-Greene-Kruskal modes in plasma physics. Through an unstable manifold expansion, we show that in one spatial dimension the dynamics is very sensitive to the initial perturbation: the instability may saturate at small amplitude-generalizing the "trapping scaling" of plasma physics-or may grow to produce a large-scale modification of the system. Furthermore, resonances are strongly suppressed, leading to different phenomena with respect to the homogeneous case. These analytical findings are illustrated and extended by direct numerical simulations with a cosine interaction potential.

    Two-dimensional atoms are investigated; these are used to code bifurcations of the Liouville foliations of nondegenerate integrable Hamiltonian systems. To be precise, the symmetry groups of atoms with complexity at most 3 are under study. Atoms with symmetry group Z{sub p}⊕Z{sub q} are considered. It is proved that Z{sub p}⊕Z{sub q} is the symmetry group of a toric atom. The symmetry groups of all nonorientable atoms with complexity at most 3 are calculated. The concept of a geodesic atom is introduced. Bibliography: 9 titles.

  2. Limit cycles and Hopf bifurcations in a Kolmogorov type system

    Simona Muratori

    1989-04-01

    Full Text Available The paper is devoted to the study of a class of Kolmogorov type systems which can be used to represent the dynamic behaviour of prey and predators. The model is an extension of the classical prey-predator model since it allows intra-specific competition for the predator's species. The analysis shows that the system can only have Kolmogorov's two modes of behaviour: a globally stable equilibrium or a globally stable limit cycle. Moreover, the transition from one of these two modes to the other is a non-catastrophic Hopf bifurcation which can be specified analytically.

    By using the bifurcation theory and methods of planar dynamical systems to (, ) equations, the dynamical behavior of different physical structures like smooth and non-smooth solitary wave, kink wave, smooth and non-smooth periodic wave, and breaking wave is obtained. The qualitative change in the physical structures of these waves is shown to depend on the systemic parameters. Under different regions of parametric spaces, various sufficient conditions to guarantee the existence of the above waves are given. Moreover, some explicit exact parametric representations of travelling wave solutions are listed.

    It is known that small perturbations of a Fredholm operator L have nulls of dimension not larger than dirnN(L). In this paper for any given positive integer κ≤ dimN(L)we prove that there is a perturbation of L which has an exactlyκ-dimensional null. Actually,our proof gives a construction of the perturbation. We further apply our result to concrete examples of differential equations with degenerate homoclinic orbits, showing how many independent homoclinic orbits can be bifurcated from a perturbation.

    A deterministic model for the transmission dynamics of Plasmodium Knowlesi malaria with direct transmission is developed. The model is analyzed using dynamical system techniques and it shows that the backward bifurcation occurs for some range of parameters. The model is extended to assess the impact of time dependent preventive (biological and chemical control) against the mosquitoes and vaccination for susceptible humans, while treatment for infected humans. The existence of optimal control is established analytically by the use of optimal control theory. Numerical simulations of the problem, suggest that applying the four control measure can effectively reduce if not eliminate the spread of Plasmodium Knowlesi in a community.

    The clustering behavior of a mono-disperse granular gas is experimentally studied in an asymmetric two-compartment setup.Unlike the random clustering in either compartment in the case of symmetric configuration when lowering the shaking strength to below a critical value,the directed clustering is observed,which corresponds to an imperfect pitchfork bifurcation.Numerical solutions of the flux equation using a modified simple flux function show qualitative agreements with the experimental results.The potential application of this asymmetric structure is discussed.

    2007-05-01

    Synchronization behaviour of two mutually coupled double-well Duffig oscillators exhibiting cross-well chaos is examined. Synchronization of the subsystems was observed for coupling strength > 0.4. It is found that when the oscillators are operated in the regime for which two attractors coexist in phase space, basin bifurcation sequences occur leading to + 1, ≥ 2 basins as the coupling is varied – a signature of Wada structure and final-state sensitivity. However, in the region of complete synchronization, the basins structure is identical with that of the single oscillators and retains its essential features including fractal basin boundaries.

    For the dynamic pitchfork bifurcation in the presence of white noise, the statistics of the last time at zero are calculated as a function of the noise level and the rate of change of the parameter. The threshold crossing problem used, for example, to model the firing of a single cortical neuron is considered, concentrating on quantities that may be experimentally measurable but have so far received little attention. Expressions for the statistics of pre-threshold excursions, occupation density and last crossing time of zero are compared with results from numerical generation of paths.

    2007-01-01

    In this paper, the authors develop new global perturbation techniques for detecting the persistence of transversal homoclinic orbits in a more general nondegenerated system with action-angle variable. The unperturbed system is assumed to have saddlecenter type equilibrium whose stable and unstable manifolds intersect in one dimensional manifold, and does not have to be completely integrable or near-integrable. By constructing local coordinate systems near the unperturbed homoclinic orbit, the conditions of existence of transversal homoclinic orbit are obtained, and the existence of periodic orbits bifurcated from homoclinic orbit is also considered.

    Based on the Routh-Hurwitz criterion,this paper investigates the stability of a new chaotic system.State feedback controllers are designed to control the chaotic system to the unsteady equilibrium points and limit cycle.Theoretical analyses give the range of value of control parameters to stabilize the unsteady equilibrium points of the chaotic system and its critical parameter for generating Hopf bifurcation.Certain nP periodic orbits can be stabilized by parameter adjustment.Numerical simulations indicate that the method can effectively guide the system trajectories to unsteady equilibrium points and periodic orbits.

    2010-01-01

    We study the asymptotic behavior of the least squares estimators of the unknown parameters of bifurcating autoregressive processes when some of the data are missing. We model the process of observed data with a two-type Galton-Watson process consistent with the binary tree structure of the data. Under independence between the process leading to the missing data and the BAR process and suitable assumptions on the driven noise, we establish the almost sure convergence of our estimators on the set of non-extinction of the Galton-Watson. We also prove a quadratic strong law and a central limit theorem.

    2010-08-01

    Variations in structural and aerodynamic nonlinearities on the dynamic behavior of an aeroelastic system are investigated. The aeroelastic system consists of a rigid airfoil that is supported by nonlinear springs in the pitch and plunge directions and subjected to nonlinear aerodynamic loads. We follow two approaches to determine the effects of variations in the linear and nonlinear plunge and pitch stiffness coefficients of this aeroelastic system on its stability near the bifurcation. The first approach is based on implementation of intrusive polynomial chaos expansion (PCE) on the governing equations, yielding a set of nonlinear coupled ordinary differential equations that are numerically solved. The results show that this approach is capable of determining sensitivity of the flutter speed to variations in the linear pitch stiffness coefficient. On the other hand, it fails to predict changes in the type of the instability associated with randomness in the cubic stiffness coefficient. In the second approach, the normal form is used to investigate the flutter (Hopf bifurcation) boundary that occurs as the freestream velocity is increased and to analytically predict the amplitude and frequency of the ensuing LCO. The results show that this mathematical approach provides detailed aspects of the effects of the different system nonlinearities on its dynamic behavior. Furthermore, this approach could be effectively used to perform sensitivity analysis of the system's response to variations in its parameters.

    2005-01-01

    Based on the regressive character of chaotic motion in nonlinear dynamic systems, a numerical regression algorithm is developed, which can be used to research the dark-lines passing through chaotic regions in bifurcation plots. The dark-lines of the parabolic mapping are obtained by using the numerical regression algorithm, and compared with those that are accurately acquired through dark-line equations. Thus the validity of this algorithm is proved. Furthermore,for the Brussel oscillation system and the piecewise linear dynamic system of a gear pair, the dark-lines are researched by using the regression algorithm. By researching the dark-lines in the bifurcation plots of nonlinear dynamic systems,the periodic windows embedded in chaotic regions can be ascertained by tangential points of dark-lines, and the turning points of chaotic attractors can be also obtained by intersected points. The results show that this algorithm is helpful to analyse dynamic behaviour of systems and control chaotic motion.

  16. Bifurcation to forward flapping flight at intermediate Reynolds number.

    Vandenberghe, Nicolas; Zhang, Jun; Childress, Stephen

    2003-11-01

    The locomotion of most fish and birds is realized by flapping wings or fins transverse to the direction of travel. According to early theoretical studies, a flapping wing translating at finite speed in an inviscid fluid experiences a propulsive force. In steady forward flight this thrust is balanced by drag. Such "lift-based mechanisms" of thrust production are characteristic of the Eulerian realm, where discrete vortical structures are shed. But, when the Reynolds number is small, viscous forces dominate and reciprocal flapping motions are ineffective. A flapping wing experiences a net drag and cannot be used to propel an organism. We have devised an experiment to bridge the two regimes, and to examine the transition to forward flight at intermediate Reynolds numbers. We study the dynamics of an horizontal wing that is flapped up and down and is free to move either forwards or backwards. This very simple kinematics emphasizes the demarcation between low and high Reynolds number because it is effective in the Eulerian realm but has no effect in the Stokesian realm. We show that flapping flight occurs abruptly as a symmetry breaking bifurcation at a critical flapping frequency. Beyond the bifurcation the forward speed increases linearly with the flapping frequency. The experiment establishes a clear demarcation between the different strategies of locomotion at large and small Reynolds number.

  17. Resonances and bifurcations in systems with elliptical equipotentials

    Marchesiello, Antonella

    2012-01-01

    We present a general analysis of the orbit structure of 2D potentials with self-similar elliptical equipotentials by applying the method of Lie transform normalization. We study the most relevant resonances and related bifurcations. We find that the 1:1 resonance is associated only to the appearance of the loops and leads to the destabilization of either one or the other normal modes, depending on the ellipticity of equipotentials. Inclined orbits are never present and may appear only when the equipotentials are heavily deformed. The 1:2 resonance determines the appearance of bananas and anti-banana orbits: the first family is stable and always appears at a lower energy than the second, which is unstable. The bifurcation sequence also produces the variations in the stability character of the major axis orbit and is modified only by very large deformations of the equipotentials. Higher-order resonances appear at intermediate or higher energies and can be described with good accuracy.

  18. Equilibrium bifurcations and chaotic transitions in coupled microlaser lattices.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Riyopoulos, S

    2004-12-01

    Analytic and simulation studies for the steady-state equilibria and bifurcations of coupled microlaser arrays are described. Lateral cavity interactions affect the gain in each cavity, leading to active photonic lattice behavior, equivalent to a nonlinear coupled oscillator lattice. The coupled-cavity rate equations are employed to follow the coherent photon and carrier population in each lattice site. Fixed-point-type steady states, of constant lattice phase shift, result for low coupling strengths; the radiation envelope for these states conforms with a periodic Bloch state over the array. Bifurcations to limit cycles of increasing complexity occur at higher coupling via period doubling sequences. The associated spatial patterns of photon and carrier lattice distribution resemble photonic convection cells. Limit cycles of different periods, emanating mathematically from different original fixed points, coexist at high strengths, each one accessible from different initial conditions. The multiplicity of possible limit cycles in systems with many degrees of freedom (number of lattice sites) combined with changes in their accessibility from initial conditions offers new insights to chaotic transitions, compared to low dimensionality paradigms.

    2013-01-01

    Full Text Available Nonlinear properties of magnetic flux feedback control system have been investigated mainly in this paper. We analyzed the influence of magnetic flux feedback control system on control property by time delay and interfering signal of acceleration. First of all, we have established maglev nonlinear model based on magnetic flux feedback and then discussed hopf bifurcation’s condition caused by the acceleration’s time delay. The critical value of delayed time is obtained. It is proved that the period solution exists in maglev control system and the stable condition has been got. We obtained the characteristic values by employing center manifold reduction theory and normal form method, which represent separately the direction of hopf bifurcation, the stability of the period solution, and the period of the period motion. Subsequently, we discussed the influence maglev system on stability of by acceleration’s interfering signal and obtained the stable domain of interfering signal. Some experiments have been done on CMS04 maglev vehicle of National University of Defense Technology (NUDT in Tangshan city. The results of experiments demonstrate that viewpoints of this paper are correct and scientific. When time lag reaches the critical value, maglev system will produce a supercritical hopf bifurcation which may cause unstable period motion.

    2011-12-01

    Many studies have used patient-specific finite element models to estimate the stress environment in atherosclerotic plaques, attempting to correlate the magnitude of stress to plaque vulnerability. In complex geometries, few studies have incorporated the anisotropic material response of arterial tissue. This paper presents a fibre remodelling algorithm to predict the fibre architecture, and thus anisotropic material response in four patient-specific models of the carotid bifurcation. The change in fibre architecture during disease progression and its affect on the stress environment in the plaque were predicted. The mean fibre directions were assumed to lie at an angle between the two positive principal strain directions. The angle and the degree of dispersion were assumed to depend on the ratio of principal strain values. Results were compared with experimental observations and other numerical studies. In non-branching regions of each model, the typical double helix arterial fibre pattern was predicted while at the bifurcation and in regions of plaque burden, more complex fibre architectures were found. The predicted change in fibre architecture in the arterial tissue during plaque progression was found to alter the stress environment in the plaque. This suggests that the specimen-specific anisotropic response of the tissue should be taken into account to accurately predict stresses in the plaque. Since determination of the fibre architecture in vivo is a difficult task, the system presented here provides a useful method of estimating the fibre architecture in complex arterial geometries.

    Multiple delayed Roessler system is analyzed from the view point of stability and chaos control. Usually these systems occur in active sensing problems where a signal is transmitted and received at a later time. Analytical and numerical results are obtained from the basic characteristic equation, using the Routh-Hurwitz criterion and Sturm sequences. The bifurcation pattern as the delay increases is displayed in detail, finally leading to chaos. In the second half we analyze the structure of the unstable periodic orbits and construct the controller which gets back the system to periodic state. Quantitative measure of the accuracy of the computation is obtained through the use of conditional Lyapunov exponent. At this point a Galerkin projection technique is used, which sets up a system of ODE in place of the delayed system, and makes the computation much simpler. Importance of this analysis is due to the role of the delay terms in the generation of the attractor, various bifurcation scenario, along with their control.

  2. Consequences of entropy bifurcation in non-Maxwellian astrophysical environments

    M. P. Leubner

    2008-07-01

    Full Text Available Non-extensive systems, accounting for long-range interactions and correlations, are fundamentally related to non-Maxwellian distributions where a duality of equilibria appears in two families, the non-extensive thermodynamic equilibria and the kinetic equilibria. Both states emerge out of particular entropy generalization leading to a class of probability distributions, where bifurcation into two stationary states is naturally introduced by finite positive or negative values of the involved entropic index kappa. The limiting Boltzmann-Gibbs-Shannon state (BGS, neglecting any kind of interactions within the system, is subject to infinite entropic index and thus characterized by self-duality. Fundamental consequences of non-extensive entropy bifurcation, manifest in different astrophysical environments, as particular core-halo patterns of solar wind velocity distributions, the probability distributions of the differences of the fluctuations in plasma turbulence as well as the structure of density distributions in stellar gravitational equilibrium are discussed. In all cases a lower entropy core is accompanied by a higher entropy halo state as compared to the standard BGS solution. Data analysis and comparison with high resolution observations significantly support the theoretical requirement of non-extensive entropy generalization when dealing with systems subject to long-range interactions and correlations.

    Zhang, Wenjing; Wahl, Lindi M; Yu, Pei

    2016-10-01

    In this paper, dynamical systems theory and bifurcation theory are applied to investigate the rich dynamical behaviours observed in three simple disease models. The 2- and 3-dimensional models we investigate have arisen in previous investigations of epidemiology, in-host disease, and autoimmunity. These closely related models display interesting dynamical behaviors including bistability, recurrence, and regular oscillations, each of which has possible clinical or public health implications. In this contribution we elucidate the key role of backward bifurcations in the parameter regimes leading to the behaviors of interest. We demonstrate that backward bifurcations with varied positions of turning points facilitate the appearance of Hopf bifurcations, and the varied dynamical behaviors are then determined by the properties of the Hopf bifurcation(s), including their location and direction. A Maple program developed earlier is implemented to determine the stability of limit cycles bifurcating from the Hopf bifurcation. Numerical simulations are presented to illustrate phenomena of interest such as bistability, recurrence and oscillation. We also discuss the physical motivations for the models and the clinical implications of the resulting dynamics.

    2013-06-01

    Experiments have been performed to investigate the effects of interstitial air on the impact bifurcations in vertically vibrated granular beds. The impact of particles on the container bottom commonly undergoes a series of subharmonic bifurcations in the sequence of period-2, period-4, chaos, period-3, period-6, chaos, period-4, period-8, and so on. In the container with an air impermeable bottom, air flows are induced and air drag on the particles causes the bifurcations to be dependent on the particle size; the bifurcation point increases with the decreasing of particle size. This makes the higher-order bifurcations become unobservable when the particle size is sufficiently small. Meanwhile, such bifurcations are shown to be controlled by both the normalized vibration acceleration and the vibration frequency. However, in the container with an air permeable bottom the size dependence of bifurcations is cancelled, and the bifurcations turn to be controlled solely by the normalized vibration acceleration. The observed results are explained in terms of an inelastic bouncing ball model with air dragging terms involved.

    Institute of Scientific and Technical Information of China (English)

    2010-01-01

    This paper presents both analytical and numerical studies on the global view of Hopf bifurcations of a van der Pol oscillator with delayed state feedback.Based on a detailed analysis of the stability switches of the trivial equilibrium of the system,the stability charts are given in a parameter space consisting of the time delay and the feedback gains.The center manifold reduc-tion and the normal form method are used to study Hopf bifurcations with respect to the time delay.To gain an insight into the persistence of a Hopf bifurcation as the time delay varies farther away from its critical value,the method of multiple scales is used to obtain the global view of Hopf bifurcations with respect to the time delay.Both the analytical results of Hopf bifurca-tions and global view of those bifurcations are validated via a collocation scheme implemented on DDE-Biftool.The most important discovery in this paper is the well-structured global view of Hopf bifurcations for the system of concern,showing the generality of the persistence of Hopf bifurcations.

  19. Evidence for a Border-Collision Bifurcation in Paced Cardiac Tissue

    Science.gov (United States)

    Berger, Carolyn

    2005-11-01

    Bifurcations in the electrical response of cardiac tissue can destabilize spatial-temporal waves of electrical activity in the heart, leading to tachycardia or even fibrillation. Therefore, it is important to characterize the types of bifurcations occurring in cardiac tissue. Our goal is to classify the bifurcation that occurs in cardiac cells when a change in pacing rate induces a transition from 1:1 to 2:2 phase-locked behavior. Current mathematical models predict that the bifurcation mediating the transition is a supercritical pitchfork type. For such a bifurcation, small random noise is predicted to be amplified by greater amounts as the bifurcation is approached (Weisenfeld). However, our experimental observations of paced bullfrog myocardium driven by small beat-to-beat alternations in the pacing rate (rather than driven by noise) displays de-amplification as the bifurcation is approached. To explain this surprising result, we hypothesize that the transition to 2:2 behavior is mediated by border-collision bifurcation, which is predicted to show little noise amplification.

    2012-01-01

    Full Text Available Coronary artery bifurcation lesions are complex and several classifications are presented to describe them. Recently, the Medina classification has been proposed. This classification uses binary values for characterization of stenosis. Flow conditions according to Medina classification have not been described. In this paper, bifurcation lesions corresponding to anatomical Medina lesion classification are compared on the basis of flow and Wall Shear Stress (WSS. Computational models of healthy and stenosed coronary artery bifurcations ((1, 1, 1, (0, 1, 1 and (1, 0, 1 with moderate and severe stenoses of 50% and 75% diameter were analyzed. The results showed that, flow conditions vary in bifurcation lesion types according to the clinically-oriented Medina classification. The flow in SB of bifurcation was dependent of the Medina lesion type and was more affected in lesion type (1, 0, 1. The magnitudes of WSS on the inner and outer walls of SB of bifurcation lesion (1, 0, 1 in post-stenotic region and along the arterial wall were smaller than bifurcations lesions (0, 1, 1 and (1, 1, 1 respectively. Our results suggest that SB of bifurcation lesion (1, 0, 1 is more prone to atherosclerosis progression compared to types (0, 1, 1 and (1, 1, 1.

    Vertebral neural spine bifurcation has been historically treated as largely restrictive to sauropodomorph dinosaurs; wherein it is inferred to be an adaptation in response to the increasing weight from the horizontally extended cervical column. Because no extant terrestrial vertebrates have massive, horizontally extended necks, extant forms with large cranial masses were examined for the presence of neural spine bifurcation. Here, I report for the first time on the soft tissue surrounding neural spine bifurcation in a terrestrial quadruped through the dissection of three Ankole-Watusi cattle. With horns weighing up to a combined 90 kg, the Ankole-Watusi is unlike any other breed of cattle in terms of cranial weight and presence of neural spine bifurcation. Using the Ankole-Watusi as a model, it appears that neural spine bifurcation plays a critical role in supporting a large mobile weight adjacent to the girdles. In addition to neural spine bifurcation being recognized within nonavian dinosaurs, this vertebral feature is also documented within many members of temnospondyls, captorhinids, seymouriamorphs, diadectomorphs, Aves, marsupials, artiodactyls, perissodactyls, and Primates, amongst others. This phylogenetic distribution indicates that spine bifurcation is more common than previously thought, and that this vertebral adaptation has contributed throughout the evolutionary history of tetrapods. Neural spine bifurcation should now be recognized as an anatomical component adapted by some vertebrates to deal with massive, horizontal, mobile weights adjacent the girdles.

    In this paper, we perform spatiotemporal bifurcation analysis in a ratio-dependent predator-prey model and derive explicit conditions for the existence of non-constant steady states that emerge through steady state bifurcation from related constant steady states. These explicit conditions are numerically verified in details and further compared to those conditions ensuring Turing instability. We find that (1) Turing domain is identical to the parametric domain where there exists only steady state bifurcation, which implies that Turing patterns are stable non-constant steady states, but the opposite is not necessarily true; (2) In non-Turing domain, steady state bifurcation and Hopf bifurcation act in concert to determine the emergent spatial patterns, that is, non-constant steady state emerges through steady state bifurcation but it may be unstable if the destabilising effect of Hopf bifurcation counteracts the stabilising effect of diffusion, leading to non-stationary spatial patterns; (3) Coupling diffusion into an ODE model can significantly enrich population dynamics by inducing alternative non-constant steady states (four different states are observed, two stable and two unstable), in particular when diffusion interacts with different types of bifurcation; (4) Diffusion can promote species coexistence by saving species which otherwise goes to extinction in the absence of diffusion.

    Abstract The DEFINITION (Impact of the complexity of bifurcation lesions treated with drug-eluting stents) study has provided a novel classification to evaluate the complexity of coronary bifurcation lesion according to coronary angiography, but angiographic imaging due to its low resolution and inherited limitation may result in an inaccurate adjudication. We used optical coherence tomography (OCT) to further evaluate the coronary characteristics in a patient with “simple” bifurcation lesion which was classified by the DEFINITION criteria. However, a “complex” bifurcation lesion was defined and confirmed according to the OCT results. A double kissing Crush stenting approach was adopted to treat this “complex” case finally. The immediate and long-term angiographic and OCT results were excellent. OCT may be useful imaging modality to classify complexity of coronary bifurcation lesion and subsequently guide its treatment strategy. PMID:28072714

    The regular structures of a generic 4d symplectic map with a mixed phase space are organized by one-parameter families of elliptic 1d-tori. Such families show prominent bends, gaps, and new branches. We explain these features in terms of bifurcations of the families when crossing a resonance. For these bifurcations, no external parameter has to be varied. Instead, the longitudinal frequency, which varies along the family, plays the role of the bifurcation parameter. As an example, we study two coupled standard maps by visualizing the elliptic and hyperbolic 1d-tori in a 3d phase-space slice, local 2d projections, and frequency space. The observed bifurcations are consistent with the analytical predictions previously obtained for quasi-periodically forced oscillators. Moreover, the new families emerging from such a bifurcation form the skeleton of the corresponding resonance channel.

    Coronary artery bifurcations are susceptible to atherosclerosis as a result of the unique local flow patterns and the subsequent endothelial shear stress (ESS) environment that are conducive to the development of plaques. Along the lateral walls of the main vessel and side branches, a distinct flow pattern is observed with local low and oscillatory ESS, while high ESS develops at the flow divider (carina). Histopathologic studies have shown that the distribution of plaque at bifurcation regions is related to the local ESS patterns. The local ESS profile also influences the outcome of percutaneous coronary interventions in bifurcation lesions. A variety of invasive and non-invasive imaging modalities have enabled 3D reconstruction of coronary bifurcations and thereby detailed local ESS assessment by computational fluid dynamics. Highly effective strategies for treatment and ultimately prevention of atherosclerosis in coronary bifurcations are anticipated with the use of advanced imaging and computational fluid dynamic techniques.

    2015-12-01

    In this paper, a fractional-order recurrent neural network is proposed and several topics related to the dynamics of such a network are investigated, such as the stability, Hopf bifurcations, and undamped oscillations. The stability domain of the trivial steady state is completely characterized with respect to network parameters and orders of the commensurate-order neural network. Based on the stability analysis, the critical values of the fractional order are identified, where Hopf bifurcations occur and a family of oscillations bifurcate from the trivial steady state. Then, the parametric range of undamped oscillations is also estimated and the frequency and amplitude of oscillations are determined analytically and numerically for such commensurate-order networks. Meanwhile, it is shown that the incommensurate-order neural network can also exhibit a Hopf bifurcation as the network parameter passes through a critical value which can be determined exactly. The frequency and amplitude of bifurcated oscillations are determined.

    A method is proposed to monitor and control Hopf bifurcations in multi-machine power systems using the information from wide area measurement systems (WAMSs). The power method (PM) is adopted to compute the pair of conjugate eigenvalues with the algebraically largest real part and the corresponding eigenvectors of the Jacobian matrix of a power system. The distance between the current equilibrium point and the Hopf bifurcation set can be monitored dynamically by computing the pair of conjugate eigenvalues. When the current equilibrium point is close to the Hopf bifurcation set, the approximate normal vector to the Hopf bifurcation set is computed and used as a direction to regulate control parameters to avoid a Hopf bifurcation in the power system described by differential algebraic equations (DAEs). The validity of the proposed method is demonstrated by regulating the reactive power loads in a 14-bus power system.

    2010-01-01

    We study the interaction of saddle-node and transcritical bifurcations in a Lotka-Volterra model with a constant term representing harvesting or migration. Because some of the equilibria of the model lie on an invariant coordinate axis, both the saddle-node and the transcritical bifurcations are of codimension one. Their interaction can be associated with either a single or a double zero eigenvalue. We show that in the former case, the local bifurcation diagram is given by a nonversal unfolding of the cusp bifurcation whereas in the latter case it is a nonversal unfolding of a degenerate Bogdanov-Takens bifurcation. We present a simple model for each of the two cases to illustrate the possible unfoldings. We analyse the consequences of the generic phase portraits for the Lotka-Volterra system.

  17. Tangent Bifurcation of Band Edge Plane Waves, Dynamical Symmetry Breaking and Vibrational Localization

    CERN Document Server

    1995-01-01

    We study tangent bifurcation of band edge plane waves in nonlinear Hamiltonian lattices. The lattice is translationally invariant. We argue for the breaking of permutational symmetry by the new bifurcated periodic orbits. The case of two coupled oscillators is considered as an example for the perturbation analysis, where the symmetry breaking can be traced using Poincare maps. Next we consider a lattice and derive the dependence of the bifurcation energy on the parameters of the Hamiltonian function in the limit of large system sizes. A necessary condition for the occurence of the bifurcation is the repelling of the band edge plane wave's frequency from the linear spectrum with increasing energy. We conclude that the bifurcated orbits will consequently exponentially localize in the configurational space.

    The anti-control of bifurcation refers to the task of creating a certain bifurcation with particular desired properties and location by appropriate controls. We consider, via feedback control and symbolic computation, the problem of anti-control of Hopf bifurcation in the chaotic Liu system. We propose an anti-control scheme and show that compared with the uncontrolled system, the anti-controlled Liu system can exhibit Hopf bifurcation in a much larger parameter region. The anti-control strategy used keeps the equilibrium structure of the Liu system and can be applied to generate Hopf bifurcation at the desired location with preferred stability. We illustrate the efficiency of the anti-control approach under different operating conditions.

    2016-01-01

    In this paper a method is introduced, to visualize bifurcated stent grafts in CT-Data. The aim is to improve therapy planning for minimal invasive treatment of abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAA). Due to precise measurement of the abdominal aortic aneurysm and exact simulation of the bifurcated stent graft, physicians are supported in choosing a suitable stent prior to an intervention. The presented method can be used to measure the dimensions of the abdominal aortic aneurysm as well as simulate a bifurcated stent graft. Both of these procedures are based on a preceding segmentation and skeletonization of the aortic, right and left iliac. Using these centerlines (aortic, right and left iliac) a bifurcated initial stent is constructed. Through the implementation of an ACM method the initial stent is fit iteratively to the vessel walls - due to the influence of external forces (distance- as well as balloonforce). Following the fitting process, the crucial values for choosing a bifurcated stent graft are measured, ...

  20. Switching exponent scaling near bifurcation points for non-Gaussian noise

    2010-03-01

    We study noise-induced switching of a system close to bifurcation parameter values where the number of stable states changes, the phenomenon that underlies the operation of bifurcation amplifiers. For non-Gaussian noise, the switching exponent Q, which gives the logarithm of the switching rate, displays a non-power-law dependence on the distance to the bifurcation point in the parameter space. For Poisson noise, Q is proportional to the square root of this distance and contains a large distance-dependent logarithmic factor that has also a characteristic dependence on the area and mean frequency of the noise pulses. Even weak additional Gaussian noise dominates switching sufficiently close to the bifurcation point, leading to a crossover in the behavior of the switching exponent to the familiar power-law scaling. Explicit results are obtained for the saddle-node and pitchfork bifurcations and are compared with numerical simulations.

    Saddle-node bifurcations have been described in a multitude of nonlinear dynamical systems modeling physical, chemical, as well as biological systems. Typically, this type of bifurcation involves the transition of a given set of fixed points from the real to the complex phase space. After the bifurcation, a saddle remnant can continue influencing the flows and generically, for non-degenerate saddle-node bifurcations, the time the flows spend in the bottleneck region of the ghost follows the inverse square root scaling law. Here we analytically derive this scaling law for a general one-dimensional, analytical, autonomous dynamical system undergoing a not necessarily non-degenerate saddle-node bifurcation, in terms of the degree of degeneracy by using complex variable techniques. We then compare the analytic calculations with a one-dimensional equation modeling the dynamics of an autocatalytic replicator. The numerical results are in agreement with the analytical solution.

    Analysis of the periodic points of a conservative periodic dynamical system uncovers the basic kinematic structure of the transport dynamics and identifies regions of local stability or chaos. While elliptic and hyperbolic points typically govern such behaviour in 3D systems, degenerate (parabolic) points also play an important role. These points represent a bifurcation in local stability and Lagrangian topology. In this study, we consider the ramifications of the two types of degenerate periodic points that occur in a model 3D fluid flow. (1) Period-tripling bifurcations occur when the local rotation angle associated with elliptic points is reversed, creating a reversal in the orientation of associated Lagrangian structures. Even though a single unstable point is created, the bifurcation in local stability has a large influence on local transport and the global arrangement of manifolds as the unstable degenerate point has three stable and three unstable directions, similar to hyperbolic points, and occurs at the intersection of three hyperbolic periodic lines. The presence of period-tripling bifurcation points indicates regions of both chaos and confinement, with the extent of each depending on the nature of the associated manifold intersections. (2) The second type of bifurcation occurs when periodic lines become tangent to local or global invariant surfaces. This bifurcation creates both saddle-centre bifurcations which can create both chaotic and stable regions, and period-doubling bifurcations which are a common route to chaos in 2D systems. We provide conditions for the occurrence of these tangent bifurcations in 3D conservative systems, as well as constraints on the possible types of tangent bifurcation that can occur based on topological considerations.

    Cerebral aneurysms form preferentially at arterial bifurcations. The vascular optimality principle (VOP) decrees that minimal energy loss across bifurcations requires optimal caliber control between radii of parent (r₀) and daughter branches (r1 and r2): r₀(n)=r₁(n)+r₂(n), with n approximating three. VOP entails constant wall shear stress (WSS), an endothelial phenotype regulator. We sought to determine if caliber control is maintained in aneurysmal intracranial bifurcations. Three-dimensional rotational angiographic volumes of 159 middle cerebral artery (MCA) bifurcations (62 aneurysmal) were processed using 3D gradient edge-detection filtering, enabling threshold-insensitive radius measurement. Radius ratio (RR)=r₀(3)/(r₁(3)+r₂(3)) and estimated junction exponent (n) were compared between aneurysmal and non-aneurysmal bifurcations using Student t-test and Wilcoxon rank-sum analysis. The results show that non-aneurysmal bifurcations display optimal caliber control with mean RR of 1.05 and median n of 2.84. In contrast, aneurysmal bifurcations had significantly lower RR (0.76, pbifurcations revealed a daughter branch larger than its parent vessel, an absolute violation of optimality, not witnessed in non-aneurysmal bifurcations. The aneurysms originated more often off the smaller daughter (52%) vs. larger daughter branch (16%). Aneurysm size was not statistically correlated to RR or n. Aneurysmal males showed higher deviation from VOP. Non-aneurysmal MCA bifurcations contralateral to aneurysmal ones showed optimal caliber control. Aneurysmal bifurcations, in contrast to non-aneurysmal counterparts, disobey the VOP and may exhibit dysregulation in WSS-mediated caliber control. The mechanism of this focal divergence from optimality may underlie aneurysm pathogenesis and requires further study.

    Stochastic magnetization dynamics in uniformly magnetized nanomagnets is considered. The system is assumed to have rotational symmetry as the anisotropy axis, the applied field, and the spin polarization are all aligned along an axis of symmetry. By appropriate integration of the Fokker-Planck equation associated to the problem, the stochastic differential equation governing the evolution of the angle between the magnetization orientation and the symmetry axis is derived. The drift terms present in this equation contain a noise-induced drift term, which, in combination with drift terms of deterministic origin, can be written as the derivative of an effective potential. Superparamagnetic-like transitions are studied in connections with the bifurcations of the effective potential as temperature and excitation conditions are varied.

    Full Text Available In this article we consider a chemostat-like model for a simple food chain where there is a well stirred nutrient substance that serves as food for a prey population of microorganisms, which in turn, is the food for a predator population of microorganisms. The nutrient-uptake of each microorganism is of Holling type I (or Lotka-Volterra form. We show the existence of a global attractor for solutions of this system. Also we show that the positive globally asymptotically stable equilibrium point of the system undergoes a Hopf bifurcation when the dynamics of the microorganisms at the bottom of the chain depends on the history of the prey population by means of a distributed delay that takes an average of the microorganism in the middle of the chain.

    Full Text Available We formulate and analyze a deterministic mathematical model for the prevention of a disease transmitted horizontally and vertically in a population of varying size. The model incorporates prevention of disease on individuals at birth and adulthood and allows for natural recovery from infection. The main aim of the study is to investigate the impact of a preventive strategy applied at birth and at adulthood in reducing the disease burden. Bifurcation analysis is explored to determine existence conditions for establishment of the epidemic states. The results of the study showed that in addition to the disease-free equilibrium there exist multiple endemic equilibria for the model reproduction number below unity. These results may have serious implications on the design of intervention programs and public health policies. Numerical simulations were carried out to illustrate analytical results.

    Claude Stolz

    2011-01-01

    Full Text Available The analysis of stability and bifurcation is studied in nonlinear mechanics with dissipative mechanisms: plasticity, damage, fracture. The description is based on introduction of a set of internal variables. This framework allows a systematic description of the material behaviour via two potentials: the free energy and the potential of dissipation. In the framework of standard generalized materials the internal state evolution is governed by a variational inequality which depends on the mechanism of dissipation. This inequality is obtained through energetic considerations in an unified description based upon energy and driving forces associated to the dissipative process. This formulation provides criterion for existence and uniqueness of the system evolution. Examples are presented for plasticity, fracture and for damaged materials.

  11. Bifurcation sequences in the symmetric 1:1 Hamiltonian resonance

    2015-01-01

    We present a general review of the bifurcation sequences of periodic orbits in general position of a family of resonant Hamiltonian normal forms with nearly equal unperturbed frequencies, invariant under $Z_2 \\times Z_2$ symmetry. The rich structure of these classical systems is investigated with geometric methods and the relation with the singularity theory approach is also highlighted. The geometric approach is the most straightforward way to obtain a general picture of the phase-space dynamics of the family as is defined by a complete subset in the space of control parameters complying with the symmetry constraint. It is shown how to find an energy-momentum map describing the phase space structure of each member of the family, a catastrophe map that captures its global features and formal expressions for action-angle variables. Several examples, mainly taken from astrodynamics, are used as applications.

    Time finite element analysis (TFEA) is used to determine the accuracy, stability, and limit cycle behavior of the milling process. Predictions are compared to traditional Euler simulation and experiments. The TFEA method forms an approximate solution by dividing the time in the cut into a finite number of elements. The approximate solution is then matched with the exact solution for free vibration to obtain a discrete linear map. Stability is then determined from the characteristic multipliers of the map. Map fixed points correspond to stable periodic solutions which are used to evaluate surface location error. Bifurcations and limit cycle behavior are predicted from a non-linear TFEA formulation. Experimental cutting tests are used to confirm theoretical predictions.

    In 51 patients with tumors at the hepatic duct bifurcation, endoprostheses were transhepatically inserted into the bile ducts. Patients with Bismuth-3-tumors (i.e. bilateral biliary obstruction) were treated by insertion of 2 or more endoprostheses. Long-term success presumed drainage of all obstructed ducts, because cholangitis has been a common problem secondary to undrained segments. Furthermore the debris and the high viscosity of infected bile increased the risk for obstruction of the endoprostheses, which was observed in 6%. The mean time of survival was 7 months with a maximum of 26 months. In our experience endoprostheses can be used successfully in unresectable Klatskin tumours, which increases the comfort for the patients in their last months of life.

    Under some minor technical hypotheses, for each T larger than a certain Ts > 0, Krisztin, Walther and Wu showed the existence of a periodic orbit for the positive feedback delay differential equation x(t) =-Tμx(t) +Tf(x(t - 1)), where T and μ are positive constants and f : R→ R satisfies f(0) = 0 and f′ > 0 。Combining this with a unique result of Krisztin and Walther, we know that this periodic orbit is the one branched out from 0 through Hopf bifurcation. Using the normal form theory for delay differential equations, we show the same result underthe condition that f ∈ C3(R,R) is such that f″(0) = 0 and f″′(0) < 0, which is weaker than those of Krisztin and Walther。

    A recent physiologically based model of the ascending arousal system is used to analyze the dynamics near the transition from wake to sleep, which corresponds to a saddle-node bifurcation at a critical point. A normal form is derived by approximating the dynamics by those of a particle in a parabolic potential well with dissipation. This mechanical analog is used to calculate the power spectrum of fluctuations in response to a white noise drive, and the scalings of fluctuation variance and spectral width are derived versus distance from the critical point. The predicted scalings are quantitatively confirmed by numerical simulations, which show that the variance increases and the spectrum undergoes critical slowing, both in accord with theory. These signals can thus serve as potential precursors to indicate imminent wake-sleep transition, with potential application to safety-critical occupations in transport, air-traffic control, medicine, and heavy industry.

    1997-01-01

    In this set of lectures, we review briefly some of the recent developments in the study of the chaotic dynamics of nonlinear oscillators, particularly of damped and driven type. By taking a representative set of examples such as the Duffing, Bonhoeffer-van der Pol and MLC circuit oscillators, we briefly explain the various bifurcations and chaos phenomena associated with these systems. We use numerical and analytical as well as analogue simulation methods to study these systems. Then we point out how controlling of chaotic motions can be effected by algorithmic procedures requiring minimal perturbations. Finally we briefly discuss how synchronization of identically evolving chaotic systems can be achieved and how they can be used in secure communications.

    Full Text Available Problem statement: Atherogenesis is affected by hemodynamic parameters, such as wall shear stress and wall shear stress spatial gradient. These parameters are largely dependent on the geometry of arterial tree. Arterial bifurcations contain significant flow disturbances. Approach: The effects of branch angle and vessel diameter ratio at the bifurcations on the wall shear stress distribution in the coronary arterial tree based on CT images were studied. CT images were digitally processed to extract geometrical contours representing the coronary vessel walls. The lumen of the coronary arteries of the patients was segmented using the open source software package (VMTK. The resulting lumens of coronary arteries were fed into a commercial mesh generator (GAMBIT, Fluent Inc. to generate a volume that was filled with tetrahedral elements. The FIDAP software (Fluent Corp. was used to carry out the simulation by solving Navier-Stokes equations. The FIELDVIEW software (Version 10.0, Intelligent Light, Lyndhurst, NJ was used for the visualization of flow patterns and the quantification of wall shear stress. Post processing was done with VMTK and MATLAB. A parabolic velocity profile was prescribed at the inlets and outlets, except for 1. Stress free outlet was assigned to the remaining outlet. Results: The results show that for angle lower than 90°, low shear stress regions are observed at the non-flow divider and the apex. For angle larger than 90°, low shear stress regions only at the non-flow divider. By increasing of diameter of side branch ratio, low shear stress regions in the side branch appear at the non-flow divider. Conclusion: It is concluded that not only angle and diameter are important, but also the overall 3D shape of the artery. More research is required to further quantify the effects angle and diameter on shear stress patterns in coronaries.

    We first give an overview of the shell-correction method which was developed by V.M. Strutinsky as a practicable and efficient approximation to the general self-consistent theory of finite fermion systems suggested by A.B. Migdal and collaborators. Then we present in more detail a semiclassical theory of shell effects, also developed by Strutinsky following original ideas of M.C. Gutzwiller. We emphasize, in particular, the influence of orbit bifurcations on shell structure. We first give a short overview of semiclassical trace formulae, which connect the shell oscillations of a quantum system with a sum over periodic orbits of the corresponding classical system, in what is usually called the 'periodic orbit theory'. We then present a case study in which the gross features of a typical double-humped nuclear fission barrier, including the effects of mass asymmetry, can be obtained in terms of the shortest periodic orbits of a cavity model with realistic deformations relevant for nuclear fission. Next we investigate shell structures in a spheroidal cavity model which is integrable and allows for far-going analytical computation. We show, in particular, how period-doubling bifurcations are closely connected to the existence of the so-called 'superdeformed' energy minimum which corresponds to the fission isomer of actinide nuclei. Finally, we present a general class of radial power-law potentials which approximate well the shape of a Woods-Saxon potential in the bound region, give analytical trace formulae for it and discuss various limits (including the harmonic oscillator and the spherical box potentials).

  20. Optimal escape from potential wells-patterns of regular and chaotic bifurcation

    Science.gov (United States)

    Stewart, H. B.; Thompson, J. M. T.; Ueda, Y.; Lansbury, A. N.

    The patterns of bifurcation governing the escape of periodically forced oscillations from a potential well over a smooth potential barrier are studied by numerical simulation. Both the generic asymmetric single-well cubic potential and the symmetric twin-well potential Duffing oscillator are surveyed by varying three parameters: forcing frequency, forcing amplitude, and damping coefficient. The close relationship between optimal escape and nonlinear resonance within the well is confirmed over a wide range of damping. Subtle but significant differences are observed at higher damping ratios. The possibility of indeterminate outcomes of jumps to and from resonance near optimal escape is cmppletely suppressed above a critical level of the damping ratio (about 0.12 for the asymmetric single-well oscillator). Coincidentally, at almost the same level of damping, the optimal escape condition becomes distinct from the apex in the (ω, F) plane of the bistable regime; this corresponds to the appearance of chaotic attractors which subsume both resonant and non-resonant motions within one well. At higher damping levels, further changes occur involving conversions from chaotic-saddle to regular-saddle bifurcations. These changes in optimal escape phenomena correspond to codimension three bifurcations at exceptional points in the space of three parameters. These bifurcations are described in terms of homoclinic and heteroclinic structures of invariant manifolds, and changes in accessible boundary orbits. The same sequence of codimension three bifurcations is observed in both the twin-well Duffing oscillator and the asymmetric single-well escape equation. Within the codimension three bifurcation patterns governing escape, one particular codimension two global bifurcation involves a chaotic attractor explosion, or interior crisis, compounded with a blue sky catastrophe or boundary crisis of the exploded attractor. This codimension two bifurcation has structure containing a form of

    The 1/2 subharmonic resonance bifurcation and universal unfolding are studied for a rotating shaft with unsymmetrical stiffness. The bifurcation behavior of the response amplitude with respect to the detuning parameter was studied for this class of problems by Xiao et al. Obviously, it is highly important to research the bifurcation behavior of the response amplitude with respect to the unsymmetry of stiffness for this problem. Here, by means of the singularity theory, the bifurcation and universal unfolding of amplitude with respect to the unsymmetrical stiffness parameter are discussed. The results indicate that it is a high codimensional bifurcation problem with codimension 5, and the universal unfolding is given. From the mechanical background, we study four forms of two parameter unfoldings contained in the universal unfolding. The transition sets in the parameter plane and the bifurcation diagrams are plotted. The results obtained in this paper show rich bifurcation phenomena and provide some guidance for the analysis and design of dynamic buckling experiments of this class of system, especially, for the choice of system parameters.

    In this paper, bifurcations of a two dimensional discrete time plant-herbivore system formulated by Allen et al. (1993) have been studied. It is proved that the system undergoes a transcritical bifurcation in a small neighborhood of a boundary equilibrium and a Neimark-Sacker bifurcation in a small neighborhood of the unique positive equilibrium. An invariant closed curve bifurcates from the unique positive equilibrium by Neimark-Sacker bifurcation, which corresponds to the periodic or quasi-periodic oscillations between plant and herbivore populations. For a special form of the system, which appears in Kulenović and Ladas (2002), it is shown that the system can undergo a supercritical Neimark-Sacker bifurcation in a small neighborhood of the unique positive equilibrium and a stable invariant closed curve appears. This bifurcation analysis provides a theoretical support on the earlier numerical observations in Allen et al. (1993) and gives a supportive evidence of the conjecture in Kulenović and Ladas (2002). Some numerical simulations are also presented to illustrate our theocratical results.

  3. Bifurcation Control of an Electrostatically-Actuated MEMS Actuator with Time-Delay Feedback

    2016-10-01

    Full Text Available The parametric excitation system consisting of a flexible beam and shuttle mass widely exists in microelectromechanical systems (MEMS, which can exhibit rich nonlinear dynamic behaviors. This article aims to theoretically investigate the nonlinear jumping phenomena and bifurcation conditions of a class of electrostatically-driven MEMS actuators with a time-delay feedback controller. Considering the comb structure consisting of a flexible beam and shuttle mass, the partial differential governing equation is obtained with both the linear and cubic nonlinear parametric excitation. Then, the method of multiple scales is introduced to obtain a slow flow that is analyzed for stability and bifurcation. Results show that time-delay feedback can improve resonance frequency and stability of the system. What is more, through a detailed mathematical analysis, the discriminant of Hopf bifurcation is theoretically derived, and appropriate time-delay feedback force can make the branch from the Hopf bifurcation point stable under any driving voltage value. Meanwhile, through global bifurcation analysis and saddle node bifurcation analysis, theoretical expressions about the system parameter space and maximum amplitude of monostable vibration are deduced. It is found that the disappearance of the global bifurcation point means the emergence of monostable vibration. Finally, detailed numerical results confirm the analytical prediction.

    We study the stability and bifurcation of steady states for a certain kind of damped driven nonlinear Schrödinger equation with cubic nonlinearity and a detuning term in one space dimension, mathematically in a rigorous sense. It is known by numerical simulations that the system shows lots of coexisting spatially localized structures as a result of subcritical bifurcation. Since the equation does not have a variational structure, unlike the conservative case, we cannot apply a variational method for capturing the ground state. Hence, we analyze the equation from a viewpoint of bifurcation theory. In the case of a finite interval, we prove the fold bifurcation of nontrivial stationary solutions around the codimension two bifurcation point of the trivial equilibrium by exact computation of a fifth-order expansion on a center manifold reduction. In addition, we analyze the steady-state mode interaction and prove the bifurcation of mixed-mode solutions, which will be a germ of localized structures on a finite interval. Finally, we study the corresponding problem on the entire real line by use of spatial dynamics. We obtain a small dissipative soliton bifurcated adequately from the trivial equilibrium.

    Neurons in the brain utilize various firing trains to encode the input signals they have received. Firing behavior of one single neuron is thoroughly explained by using a bifurcation diagram from polarized resting to firing, and then to depolarized resting. This explanation provides an important theoretical principle for understanding neuronal biophysical behaviors. This paper reports the novel experimental and modeling results of the modification of such a bifurcation diagram by adjusting small conductance potassium (SK) channel. In experiments, changes in excitability and depolarization block in nucleus accumbens shell and medium-spiny projection neurons are explored by increasing the intensity of injected current and blocking the SK channels by apamin. A shift of bifurcation points is observed. Then, a Hodgkin—Huxley type model including the main electrophysiological processes of such neurons is developed to reproduce the experimental results. The reduction of SK channel conductance also shifts the bifurcations, which is in consistence with experiment. A global bifurcation paradigm of this shift is obtained by adjusting two parameters, intensity of injected current and SK channel conductance. This work reveals the dynamics underpinning modulation of neuronal firing behaviors by biologically important ionic conductance. The results indicate that small ionic conductance other than that responsible for spike generation can modify bifurcation points and shift the bifurcation diagram and, thus, change neuronal excitability and adaptation.

  6. Bifurcation boundary conditions for current programmed PWM DC-DC converters at light loading

    Fang, Chung-Chieh

    2012-10-01

    Three types of bifurcations (instabilities) in the PWM DC-DC converter at light loading under current mode control in continuous-conduction mode (CCM) or discontinuous-conduction mode (DCM) are analysed: saddle-node bifurcation (SNB) in CCM or DCM, border-collision bifurcation during the CCM-DCM transition, and period-doubling bifurcation in CCM. Different bifurcations occur in some particular loading ranges. Bifurcation boundary conditions separating stable regions from unstable regions in the parametric space are derived. A new methodology to analyse the SNB in the buck converter based on the peak inductor current is proposed. The same methodology is applied to analyse the other types of bifurcations and converters. In the buck converter, multiple stable/unstable CCM/DCM steady-state solutions may coexist. Possibility of multiple solutions deserves careful study, because an ignored solution may merge with a desired stable solution and make both disappear. Understanding of SNB can explain some sudden disappearances or jumps of steady-state solutions observed in switching converters.

    A modified Leslie-Gower predator-prey system with two delays is investigated. By choosing τ 1 and τ 2 as bifurcation parameters, we show that the Hopf bifurcations occur when time delay crosses some critical values. Moreover, we derive the equation describing the flow on the center manifold; then we give the formula for determining the direction of the Hopf bifurcation and the stability of bifurcating periodic solutions. Numerical simulations are carried out to illustrate the theoretical results and chaotic behaviors are observed. Finally, using a global Hopf bifurcation theorem for functional differential equations, we show the global existence of the periodic solutions.

    We report the experimental study of the bifurcations of a large-scale circulation that is formed over a turbulent flow generated by a spatially periodic forcing. After shortly describing how the flow becomes turbulent through a sequence of symmetry breaking bifurcations, we focus our study on the transitions that occur within the turbulent regime. They are related to changes in the shape of the probability density function (PDF) of the amplitude of the large scale flow. We discuss the nature of these bifurcations and how to model the shape of the PDF.

    Landslide prediction is one of the most important aspects of prevention and control for geological hazards and the environmental protection. In order to study the nonlinear methods for landslide prediction, the synergetic-bifurcated model of predicting the timing of slope failure is established by combining Synergetics with Bifurcation Theory based on single-state variable friction law in this paper. The synergetic effects and bifurcated process of the factors in the slope evolution can be characterized in the model. Taking the Xintan Landslide as an example, the prediction of landslide is carried out based on the model suggested.

    A numerical analysis of flow and concentration fields of macromolecules in a slightly curved blood vessel was carried out. Based on these results, the effect of the bifurcation of a flow on the mass transport in a curved blood vessel was discussed. The macromolecules turned out to be easier to deposit in the inner part of the curved blood vessel near the critical Dean number. Once the Dean number is higher than the critical number, the bifurcation of the flow appears. This bifurcation can prevent macromolecules from concentrating in the inner part of the curved blood vessel. This result is helpful for understanding the possible correlations between the blood dynamics and atherosclerosis.

Globally asymptotically stability of the positive equilibrium is obtained. Regarding the constant number of prey refuge m as a bifurcation parameter, by analyzing the distribution of the eigenvalues, the existence of Hopf bifurcation is given. Employing the center manifold theory and normal form method, an algorithm for determining the properties of the Hopf bifurcation is derived.

    Bifurcation, bistability and solitary waves of the combined KdV and mKdV equation are investigatedsystematically. At first, bifurcation and bistability are analyzed by selecting an integral constant as the bifurcationparameter. Then, different conditions expressed in terms of the bifurcation parameter are obtained for the existence ofbreather-like, algebraic, pulse-like solitary waves, and shock waves. All types of the solitary wave and shock wave solutionsare given by direct integration. Finally, an approximate analytic method by employing the interpolation polynomials iscomplete and the theoretical methods are the simplest hitherto.

    For the nonlinear wave equation with quartic polynomial potential, bifurcation and solitary waves are investigated. Based on the bifurcation and the energy integral of the two-dimensional dynamical system satisfied by the travelling waves, it is very interesting to find different sufficient and necessary conditions in terms of the bifurcation parameter for the existence and coexistence of bright, dark solitary waves and shock waves. The method of direct integration is developed to give all types of solitary wave solutions. Our method is simpler than other newly developed ones. Some results are similar to those obtained recently for the combined KdV-mKdV equation.

Based on ecological eutrophication, interaction of the algal and the prey of the zooplankton, a nutrient nonlinear dynamic system was constructed. Using the methods of the modern nonlinear dynamics, the bifurcation behaviors and stability of the model equations by changing the control parameter r were discussed. The value of r for bifurcation point was calculated, and the stability of the limit cycle was also discussed. The result shows that through quasi-periodicity bifurcation the system is lost in chaos.

    Institute of Scientific and Technical Information of China (English)

    2007-01-01

    Synchronization and bifurcation analysis in coupled networks of discrete-time systems are investigated in the present paper. We mainly focus on some special coupling matrix, i.e., the sum of each row equals a nonzero constant u and the network connection is directed. A result that the network can reach a new synchronous state, which is not the asymptotic limit set determined by the node state equation, is derived. It is interesting that the network exhibits bifurcation if we regard the constant u as a bifurcation parameter at the synchronous state. Numerical simulations are given to show the efficiency of our derived conclusions.

Firstly, the Chebyshev polynomial approximation is applied to study the stochastic fractional-order system. Based on the method, the stochastic system is reduced to the equivalent deterministic one, and then the responses of the stochastic system can be obtained by numerical methods. Then, according to the existence conditions of Hopf bifurcation, the critical parameter value of the bifurcation is obtained by theoretical analysis. Then, numerical simulations are carried out to verify the theoretical results.

    Snaking bifurcations in a chain of mechanical oscillators are studied. The individual oscillators are weakly nonlinear and subject to self-excitation and subcritical Hopf-bifurcations with some parameter ranges yielding bistability. When the oscillators are coupled to their neighbours, snaking bifurcations result, corresponding to localised vibration states. The snaking patterns do seem to be more complex than in previously studied continuous systems, comprising a plethora of isolated branches and also a large number of similar but not identical states, originating from the weak coupling of the phases of the individual oscillators.

    The center conditions and bifurcation of limit cycles for a class of fifth degree systems are investigated. Two recursive formulas to compute singular quantities at infinity and at the origin are given. The first nine singular point quantities at infinity and first seven singular point quantities at the origin for the system are given in order to get center conditions and study bifurcation of limit cycles. Two fifth degree systems are constructed. One allows the appearance of eight limit cycles in the neighborhood of infinity,which is the first example that a polynomial differential system bifurcates eight limit cycles at infinity. The other perturbs six limit cycles at the origin.

    A theoretical analysis is presented to show the general occurrence of phase clusters in weakly, globally coupled oscillators close to a Hopf bifurcation. Through a reductive perturbation method, we derive the amplitude equation with a higher order correction term valid near a Hopf bifurcation point. This amplitude equation allows us to calculate analytically the phase coupling function from given limit-cycle oscillator models. Moreover, using the phase coupling function, the stability of phase clusters can be analyzed. We demonstrate our theory with the Brusselator model. Experiments are carried out to confirm the presence of phase clusters close to Hopf bifurcations with electrochemical oscillators.

Through a right pterional craniotomy the sylvian fissure was largely opened as to allow enough workspace for clipping the aneurysm and placing a temporary clip on M1.

Complex MCA bifurcation aneurysms can be safely reconstructed using regular clips, without the need of using fenestrated clips or complex by-pass procedures.

    The dynamics of a detailed ionic cardiac cell model proposed by Sato et al. (2009) is investigated in terms of periodic and chaotic action potentials, bifurcation scenarios, and coexistence of attractors. Starting from the model's standard parameter values bifurcation diagrams are computed to evaluate the model's robustness with respect to (small) parameter changes. While for some parameters the dynamics turns out to be practically independent from their values, even minor changes of other parameters have a very strong impact and cause qualitative changes due to bifurcations or transitions to coexisting attractors. Implications of this lack of robustness are discussed.

    The purpose of this research is to investigate to what extend application of novel method of complete bifurcation groups to the analysis of global dynamics of piecewise-smooth hybrid systems enables one to highlight new nonlinear effects before periodic and chaotic regimes. Results include the construction of complete one and two-parameter bifurcation diagrams, detection of various types of bifurcation groups and investigation of their interactions, localization of rare attractors, and the investigation of different principles of birth of chaotic attractors. Effectiveness of the approach is illustrated in respect to one of the most widely used switching systems-boost converter under current mode control operating in continuous current mode.

    We investigate the effect of delayed feedback on the finance system, which describes the time variation of the interest rate, for establishing the fiscal policy. By local stability analysis, we theoretically prove the existences of Hopf bifurcation and Hopf-zero bifurcation. By using the normal form method and center manifold theory, we determine the stability and direction of a bifurcating periodic solution. Finally, we give some numerical solutions, which indicate that when the delay passes through certain critical values, chaotic oscillation is converted into a stable equilibrium or periodic orbit.

    Full Text Available This paper is concerned with bifurcation and chaos control in a new chaotic system recently introduced by Bao et al [9]. First a condition that the system has a Hopf bifurcation is derived. Then by applying delayed feedback controller, the chaotic system is forced to have a stable periodic orbit extracting from chaotic attractor. This is done by making Hopf bifurcation value of the open loop and the closed loop systems identical. Also by suitable tuning of the controller parameters, unstable equilibrium points become stable. Numerical simulations verify the results.

    This Letter is concerned with bifurcation and chaos control in scalar delayed differential equations with delay parameter {tau}. By linear stability analysis, the conditions under which a sequence of Hopf bifurcation occurs at the equilibrium points are obtained. The delayed feedback controller is used to stabilize unstable periodic orbits. To find the controller delay, it is chosen such that the Hopf bifurcation remains unchanged. Also, the controller feedback gain is determined such that the corresponding unstable periodic orbit becomes stable. Numerical simulations are used to verify the analytical results.

    In this paper, we study the dynamics of a diffusive equation with time delay subject to Dirichlet boundary condition in a bounded domain. The existence of spatially nonhomogeneous steady-state solution is investigated by applying Lyapunov-Schmidt reduction. The existence of Hopf bifurcation at the spatially nonhomogeneous steady-state solution is derived by analyzing the distribution of the eigenvalues. The direction of Hopf bifurcation and stability of the bifurcating periodic solution are also investigated by means of normal form theory and center manifold reduction. Moreover, we illustrate our general results by applications to the Nicholson's blowflies models with one- dimensional spatial domain.

  14. Bifurcation analysis for an SMIB power system with series capacitor compensation associated with sub-synchronous resonance

    Institute of Scientific and Technical Information of China (English)

    2009-01-01

    In this paper,an introduction to the bifurcation theory and its applicability to the study of sub-synchronous resonance (SSR) phenomenon in power system are presented. The continuation and bifurcation analysis software AUTO97 is adopted to investigate SSR for a single-machine-infinite-bus power system with series capacitor compensation. The investigation results show that SSR is the result of unstable limit cycle after bifurcation. When the system exhibits SSR, some complex periodical orbit bifurcations, such as torus bifurcation and periodical fold bifurcation, may happen with the variation of limit cycle. Furthermore, the initial operation condition may greatly influence the ultimate state of the system. The time-domain simulation is carried out to verify the effectiveness of the results obtained from the bifurcation analysis.

  17. Stochastic bifurcations in a bistable Duffing-Van der Pol oscillator with colored noise.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Xu, Yong; Gu, Rencai; Zhang, Huiqing; Xu, Wei; Duan, Jinqiao

    2011-05-01

    This paper aims to investigate Gaussian colored-noise-induced stochastic bifurcations and the dynamical influence of correlation time and noise intensity in a bistable Duffing-Van der Pol oscillator. By using the stochastic averaging method, theoretically, one can obtain the stationary probability density function of amplitude for the Duffing-Van der Pol oscillator and can reveal interesting dynamics under the influence of Gaussian colored noise. Stochastic bifurcations are discussed through a qualitative change of the stationary probability distribution, which indicates that system parameters, noise intensity, and noise correlation time, respectively, can be treated as bifurcation parameters. They also imply that the effects of multiplicative noise are rather different from that of additive noise. The results of direct numerical simulation verify the effectiveness of the theoretical analysis. Moreover, the largest Lyapunov exponent calculations indicate that P and D bifurcations have no direct connection.

    1997-01-01

    We investigate two models of glycolytic oscillations. Each model consists of two coupled nonlinear ordinary differential equations. Both models are found to have a saddle point at infinity and to exhibit a saddle-node bifurcation at infinity, giving rise to a second saddle and a stable node...... at infinity. Depending on model parameters, a stable limit cycle may blow up to infinite period and amplitude and disappear in the bifurcation, and after the bifurcation, the stable node at infinity then attracts all trajectories. Alternatively, the stable node at infinity may coexist with either a stable...... sink (not at infinity) or a stable limit cycle. This limit cycle may then disappear in a heteroclinic bifurcation at infinity in which the unstable manifold from one saddle at infinity joins the stable manifold of the other saddle at infinity. These results explain prior reports for one of the models...

    2015-08-01

    In this paper, the effects of noise and time delay on stochastic bifurcations are investigated theoretically and numerically in a time-delayed Duffing-Van der Pol oscillator subjected to white noise. Due to the time delay, the random response is not Markovian. Thereby, approximate methods have been adopted to obtain the Fokker-Planck-Kolmogorov equation and the stationary probability density function for amplitude of the response. Based on the knowledge that stochastic bifurcation is characterized by the qualitative properties of the steady-state probability distribution, it is found that time delay and feedback intensity as well as noise intensity will induce the appearance of stochastic P-bifurcation. Besides, results demonstrated that the effects of the strength of the delayed displacement feedback on stochastic bifurcation are accompanied by the sensitive dependence on time delay. Furthermore, the results from numerical simulations best confirm the effectiveness of the theoretical analyses.

    2015-09-01

    Full Text Available In this paper, we investigate the dynamics of a discrete-time predator-prey system involving group defense. The existence and local stability of positive fixed point of the discrete dynamical system is analyzed algebraically. It is shown that the system undergoes a flip bifurcation and a Neimark-Sacker bifurcation in the interior of R+2 by using bifurcation theory. Numerical simulation results not only show the consistence with the theoretical analysis but also display the new and interesting dynamical behaviors, including phase portraits, period-7, 20-orbits, attracting invariant circle, cascade of period-doubling bifurcation from period-20 leading to chaos, quasi-periodic orbits, and sudden disappearance of the chaotic dynamics and attracting chaotic set. The Lyapunov exponents are numerically computed to characterize the complexity of the dynamical behaviors.

    Full Text Available We use anodization of aluminum foil with variable applied anodization voltage to create an alumina template with bifurcated porous structures. The template is then used to electrodeposit Co, fabricating unique bifurcated Co nanowires. In order to better understand the crystal structure of our new material, we then report magnetic properties of these self-assembled bifurcated Co nanowires. Magnetic measurements of the bifurcated wires are studied as functions of branch/stem ratios, wire length, and temperature. The results are compared with those of straight Co nanowires of similar dimensions and thin film Co samples to find that a different crystal lattice structure prevails in the stems than in the branches of the wires.

    2017-04-01

    Power electronic DC/AC converters (inverters) play an important role in modern power engineering. These systems are also of considerable theoretical interest because their dynamics is influenced by the presence of two vastly different forcing frequencies. As a consequence, inverter systems may be modeled in terms of piecewise smooth maps with an extremely high number of switching manifolds. We have recently shown that models of this type can demonstrate a complicated bifurcation structure associated with the occurrence of border collisions. Considering the example of a PWM H-bridge single-phase inverter, the present paper discusses a number of unusual phenomena that can occur in piecewise smooth maps with a very large number of switching manifolds. We show in particular how smooth (pitchfork and flip) bifurcations may form a macroscopic pattern that stretches across the overall bifurcation structure. We explain the observed bifurcation phenomena, show under which conditions they occur, and describe them quantitatively by means of an analytic approximation.

  6. A mathematical framework for critical transitions: bifurcations, fast-slow systems and stochastic dynamics

    CERN Document Server

    Kuehn, Christian

    2011-01-01

    Bifurcations can cause dynamical systems with slowly varying parameters to transition to far-away attractors. The terms "critical transition" or "tipping point" have been used to describe this situation. Critical transitions have been observed in an astonishingly diverse set of applications from ecosystems and climate change to medicine and finance. The goal of this paper is to bring together a variety of techniques from dynamical systems theory to analyze critical transitions. In particular, we shall focus on identifying indicators for catastrophic shifts in the dynamics. Starting from classical bifurcation theory and incorporating multiple time scale dynamics we are able to give a detailed analysis of local bifurcations that induce critical transitions. We characterize several early warning signs for a transition such as slowing down and bifurcation delay. Then we take into account stochastic effects and proceed to model critical transitions by fast-slow stochastic differential equations. The interplay betw...

    In this paper, we investigate the stability and Hopf bifurcation of an n-dimensional competitive Lotka-Volterra diffusion system with time delay and homogeneous Dirichlet boundary condition. We first show that there exists a positive nonconstant steady state solution satisfying the given asymptotic expressions and establish the stability of the positive nonconstant steady state solution. Regarding the time delay as a bifurcation parameter, we explore the system that undergoes a Hopf bifurcation near the positive nonconstant steady state solution and derive a calculation method for determining the direction of the Hopf bifurcation. Finally, we cite the stability of a three-dimensional competitive Lotka-Volterra diffusion system with time delay to illustrate our conclusions.

    This paper presents an investigation of dynamics of the coupled nonidentical FHN models with synaptic connection, which can exhibit rich bifurcation behavior with variation of the coupling strength. With the time delay being introduced, the coupled neurons may display a transition from the original chaotic motions to periodic ones, which is accompanied by complex bifurcation scenario. At the same time, synchronization of the coupled neurons is studied in terms of their mean frequencies. We also find that the small time delay can induce new period windows with the coupling strength increasing. Moreover, it is found that synchronization of the coupled neurons can be achieved in some parameter ranges and related to their bifurcation transition. Bifurcation diagrams are obtained numerically or analytically from the mathematical model and the parameter regions of different behavior are clarified.

    Institute of Scientific and Technical Information of China (English)

    彭妙娟; 程玉民

    2005-01-01

    In civil engineering, the nonlinear dynamic instability of structures occurs at a bifurcation point or a limit point. The instability at a bifurcation point can be analyzed with the theory of nonlinear dynamics, and that at a limit point can be discussed with the theory of elastoplasticity. In this paper, the nonlinear dynamic instability of structures was treated with mathematical and mechanical theories. The research methods for the problems of structural nonlinear dynamic stability were discussed first, and then the criterion of stability or instability of structures, the method to obtain the bifurcation point and the limit point, and the formulae of the directions of the branch solutions at a bifurcation point were elucidated. These methods can be applied to the problems of nonlinear dynamic instability of structures such as reticulated shells, space grid structures, and so on.

    2016-01-01

    Full Text Available The main goal of this paper is to continue the investigations of the important system of Fengqi et al. (2008. The occurrence of Turing and Hopf bifurcations in small homogeneous arrays of two coupled reactors via diffusion-linked mass transfer which described by a system of ordinary differential equations is considered. I study the conditions of the existence as well as stability properties of the equilibrium solutions and derive the precise conditions on the parameters to show that the Hopf bifurcation occurs. Analytically I show that a diffusion driven instability occurs at a certain critical value, when the system undergoes a Turing bifurcation, patterns emerge. The spatially homogeneous equilibrium loses its stability and two new spatially non-constant stable equilibria emerge which are asymptotically stable. Numerically, at a certain critical value of diffusion the periodic solution gets destabilized and two new spatially nonconstant periodic solutions arise by Turing bifurcation.

  13. Simple and Superlattice Turing Patterns in Reaction-Diffusion Systems Bifurcation, Bistability, and Parameter Collapse

    CERN Document Server

    Judd, S L; Judd, Stephen L.; Silber, Mary

    1998-01-01

    This paper investigates the competition between both simple (e.g. stripes, hexagons) and ``superlattice'' (super squares, super hexagons) Turing patterns in two-component reaction-diffusion systems. ``Superlattice'' patterns are formed from eight or twelve Fourier modes, and feature structure at two different length scales. Using perturbation theory, we derive simple analytical expressions for the bifurcation equation coefficients on both rhombic and hexagonal lattices. These expressions show that, no matter how complicated the reaction kinectics, the nonlinear reaction terms reduce to just four effective terms within the bifurcation equation coefficients. Moreover, at the hexagonal degeneracy -- when the quadratic term in the hexagonal bifurcation equation disappears -- the number of effective system parameters drops to two, allowing a complete characterization of the possible bifurcation results at this degeneracy. The general results are then applied to specific model equations, to investigate the stabilit...

    2000-01-01

    This paper studies interactions of pipe and fluid and deals with bifurcations of a cantilevered pipe conveying a steady fluid, clamped at one end and having a nozzle subjected to nonlinear constraints at the free end. Either the nozzle parameter or the flow velocity is taken as a variable parameter. The discrete equations of the system are obtained by the Ritz-Galerkin method. The static stability is studied by the Routh criteria. The method of averaging is employed to investigate the stability of the periodic motions. A Runge-Kutta scheme is used to examine the analytical results and the chaotic motions. Three critical values are given. The first one makes the system lose the static stability by pitchfork bifurcation. The second one makes the system lose the dynamical stability by Hopf bifurcation. The third one makes the periodic motions of the system lose the stability by doubling-period bifurcation.

  16. The Influence of Machine Saturation on Bifurcation and Chaos in Multimachine Power Systems

    Alomari, Majdi M.; Zhu, Jian Gue

    A bifurcation theory is applied to the multimachine power system to investigate the effect of iron saturation on the complex dynamics of the system. The second system of the IEEE second benchmark model of Subsynchronous Resonance (SSR) is considered. The system studied can be mathematically modeled as a set of first order nonlinear ordinary differential equations with (µ = Xc/XL) as a bifurcation parameter. Hence, bifurcation theory can be applied to nonlinear dynamical systems, which can be written as dx/dt = F(x;µ). The results show that the influence of machine saturation expands the unstable region when the system loses stability at the Hopf bifurcation point at a less value of compensation.

    2014-01-01

    Full Text Available We extend the three-dimensional SIR model to four-dimensional case and then analyze its dynamical behavior including stability and bifurcation. It is shown that the new model makes a significant improvement to the epidemic model for computer viruses, which is more reasonable than the most existing SIR models. Furthermore, we investigate the stability of the possible equilibrium point and the existence of the Hopf bifurcation with respect to the delay. By analyzing the associated characteristic equation, it is found that Hopf bifurcation occurs when the delay passes through a sequence of critical values. An analytical condition for determining the direction, stability, and other properties of bifurcating periodic solutions is obtained by using the normal form theory and center manifold argument. The obtained results may provide a theoretical foundation to understand the spread of computer viruses and then to minimize virus risks.

    Xu Wei; Ma Shao-Juan; Xie Wen-Xian

    2008-01-01

    Stochastic period-doubling bifurcation is explored in a forced Duiting system with a bounded random parameter as an additional weak harmonic perturbation added to the system. Firstly, the biharmonic driven Duffing system with a random parameter is reduced to its equivalent deterministic one, and then the responses of the stochastic system can be obtained by available effective numerical methods. Finally, numerical simulations show that the phase of the additional weak harmonic perturbation has great influence on the stochastic period-doubling bifurcation in the biharmonic driven Duffing system. It is emphasized that, different from the deterministic biharmonic driven Duffing system, the intensity of random parameter in the Duffing system can also be taken as a bifurcation parameter, which can lead to the stochastic period-doubling bifurcations.

    In this paper a three-dimensional environmental defensive expenditures model with delay is considered. The model is based on the interactions among visitors V, quality of ecosystem goods E, and capital K, intended as accommodation and entertainment facilities, in Protected Areas (PAs). The tourism user fees (TUFs) are used partly as a defensive expenditure and partly to increase the capital stock. The stability and existence of Hopf bifurcation are investigated. It is that stability switches and Hopf bifurcation occurs when the delay t passes through a sequence of critical values, {tau}{sub 0}. It has been that the introduction of a delay is a destabilizing process, in the sense that increasing the delay could cause the bio-economics to fluctuate. Formulas about the stability of bifurcating periodic solution and the direction of Hopf bifurcation are exhibited by applying the normal form theory and the center manifold theorem. Numerical simulations are given to illustrate the results.
