There are three levels of tutorials:

  1. fully automatic bifurcation diagram (aBD) computation (only for equilibria): one uses the function bifurcationdiagram and let it compute the diagram fully automatically. Another possibility is to use deflated continuation.
  2. semi-automatic bifurcation diagram computation: one uses automatic branch switching (aBS) to compute branches at specified bifurcation points
  3. manual bifurcation diagram computation: one does not use automatic branch switching. This has only educational purposes or for complex problems where aBS fails.

ODE examples

We present examples in the case of ODEs. Although BifurcationKit.jl is not geared towards them, we provide some specific methods which allow to study the bifurcations of ODE in a relatively efficient way.

Study of equilibria

Periodic orbits

Here are some examples more oriented towards the computation of periodic orbits. Here is one for aBS from period-doubling bifurcations of periodic orbits

In the next tutorial, we show how to refine a periodic orbit guess obtained from numerical simulation. We also show how to perform continuation of PD/NS points using Shooting or Collocation.

In the next tutorial, we showcase the detection of Chenciner bifurcations. This is a relatively advanced tutorial, so we don't give much explanations. The reader should get first familiar with the above simpler examples.

In the next tutorial, we showcase aBS from Bautin/HH to curve of Fold/NS of periodic orbits.

Homoclinic orbits

Based on the package HclinicBifurcationKit.jl and its docs.
