Calculating Branching Behavior of Boundary-Value Problems

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


The main topic of this chapter is the calculation of branching behavior of the one-parameter family of two-point boundary-value problems As usual, the variable y (t) consists of n scalar functions y 1 (t),…,y n (t). The right-hand side f(t, y, λ) is a vector function; the boundary conditions [the second equation (6.1)] consist of n scalar equations, The independent variable t (atb) need not be time; accordingly, the derivative with respect to t is denoted by a prime ′ rather than a dot: y′ = dy/dt. The bifurcation parameter λ can occur in the boundary conditions: However, because the methods discussed in this chapter are not affected by the dependence of r on λ, the notation r(y (a), y (b)) of equation (6.1) will be retained.
