The Quadfurcation

The Quadfurcation

Quadfurcation is a bifurcation when four fixed points are created from none at a single location in phase space upon variation of one parameter. This bifurcation is not at all well studied in dynamical systems literature. In this paper Bäcker and Meiss put forth that the quadfurcation is an organizing center for the dynamics of a four-dimensional map, the quadratic diffeomorphism introduced by Moser in 1994.

4th Bremen Winter School and Symposium: Dynamics, Chaos...

This year's international winter school and symposium on dynamics in Bremen focused on the mathematical concepts of chaos. More than 70 participants enjoyed lecture courses and research talks on approaches and recent developments of chaotic dynamics in skew-product and geodesic flows, ODEs as well as diffeomorphisms and iterated function systems.
