MAT 332 Assignment 2
For each of the following functions, at the given parameter values, determine the bifurcations occuring if any (saddle-node or period doubling bifurcation)
1. F (x) = x + x2 + , at = 0
2. F (x) = x + x2 + at = 1

MAT 332 Assignment 4
1. Consider the non-linear system
x0 = y + ax(x2 + y 2 )
y 0 = x + ay(x2 + y 2 )
depending on the parameter a.
a) Linearize the system at the origin and verify that (0, 0) is a centre for the linearized
b) Use a Maple plot f

Maple: Solving Ordinary Differential
A differential equation is an equation that involves derivatives of one or more unknown functions. Solving the differential equation means finding a function (or every such function) that
satisfies the differ
