3. Purpose: To determine the type of bifurcation. From [Str94], Problem 8.1.6 . Exercise: Consider the system ˙ x = y - 2 x, ˙ y = μ + x 2 - y . (a) Sketch the nullclines. (b) Find and classify the bifurcations that occur as μ varies. (c) Sketch the phase portrait as a function of μ . Solution: (a) The nullclines for this system are given by y = 2 x and y = μ + x 2 , however the number of fixed points varies depending on the value of μ . If μ > 1, the there are no fixed points for the system (see Figure 25). For μ = 1, one fixed point occurs (see Figure 26), and for μ < 1, there are 2 fixed points for the system (see Figure 27). –4 –2 0 2 4 y –2 –1 1 2 3 x Figure 25: The nullclines for the μ > 1 case –4 –2 0 2 4 y –2 –1 1 2 3 x Figure 26: The nullclines for the μ = 1 case (b) The bifurcations of the system occur at the critical value of μ c = 1, and is a saddle-node bifurcation. This can be found by evaluating the Jacobian, finding the eigenvalues and classifying the fixed points for μ 1. 30

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
