Local Bifurcation Theory
The word bifurcation means division into two and is used in a wide sense to indicate every qualitative topological metamorphosis of a picture under the variation of parameters on which the object being studied depends. The objects can be diverse: for example, real or complex curves or surfaces, functions or mappings, manifolds or fiber bundles, vector fields or equations, differential or integral.
