Organising Centres in the Semi-global Analysis of Dynamical Systems

H. W. Broer, V. Naudot, R. Roussarie, K. Saleh, F.O.O. Wagener


The notion of organising centre of a bifurcation diagram is used as an ordering principle in the analysis
of nonlinear problems in pure and applied dynamical systems theory. When considering a given, generic n-parameter family of dynamical systems the codimension n bifurcations are isolated in the parameter space, generating a more global array of lower codimension bifurcations. It often makes sense to add one extra parameter to the system, e.g., by varying a ‘constant’ coefficient. In such cases, semi-global parts of the given n-dimensional bifurcation set can be understood as generic slices in versal unfoldings of codimension n + 1 singularities. This can give great insight in the structure of the given system, as we shall illustrate in two extensive case studies.

We have provided the online access of all issues and papers to the indexing agencies (as given on journal web site). It’s depend on indexing agencies when, how and what manner they can index or not. Hence, we like to inform that on the basis of earlier indexing, we can’t predict the today or future indexing policy of third party (i.e. indexing agencies) as they have right to discontinue any journal at any time without prior information to the journal. So, please neither sends any question nor expects any answer from us on the behalf of third party i.e. indexing agencies.Hence, we will not issue any certificate or letter for indexing issue. Our role is just to provide the online access to them. So we do properly this and one can visit indexing agencies website to get the authentic information. Also: DOI is paid service which provided by a third party. We never mentioned that we go for this for our any journal. However, journal have no objection if author go directly for this paid DOI service.
