One-Parameter Bifurcations of Fixed Points in Discrete-Time Systems

  • Yuri A. Kuznetsov
Part of the Applied Mathematical Sciences book series (AMS, volume 112)


In this chapter, which is organized very much like Chapter 3, we present bifurcation conditions defining the simplest bifurcations of fixed points in n-dimensional discrete-time dynamical systems: the fold, the flip, and the Neimark-Sacker bifurcations. Then we study these bifurcations in the lowest possible dimension in which they can occur: the fold and flip bifurcations for scalar systems and the Neimark-Sacker bifurcation for planar systems. In Chapter 5 it will be shown how to apply these results to n-dimensional systems when n is larger than one or two, respectively.
