TL;DR: In this paper, the static and dynamic aspects of bifurcation theory, which are of particular pertinence to differential equations, have been discussed, and a discussion of the changes that occur in the structure of the set of zeros of a function as parameters in the function are varied.

Abstract: Having presented background material from functional analysis and the qualitative theory of differential equations, this text focuses on the static and dynamic aspects of bifurcation theory, which are of particular pertinence to differential equations. Static bifurcation theory is concerned with the changes that occur in the structure of the set of zeros of a function as parameters in the function are varied. Dynamic bifurcation theory is concerned with the changes that occur in the structure of the limit sets of solutions of differential equations as parameters in the vector field are varied.

TL;DR: The sparsity of the discretized systems for the computation of limit cycles and their bifurcation points is exploited by using the standard Matlab sparse matrix methods.

Abstract: MATCONT is a graphical MATLAB software package for the interactive numerical study of dynamical systems. It allows one to compute curves of equilibria, limit points, Hopf points, limit cycles, period doubling bifurcation points of limit cycles, and fold bifurcation points of limit cycles. All curves are computed by the same function that implements a prediction-correction continuation algorithm based on the Moore-Penrose matrix pseudo-inverse. The continuation of bifurcation points of equilibria and limit cycles is based on bordering methods and minimally extended systems. Hence no additional unknowns such as singular vectors and eigenvectors are used and no artificial sparsity in the systems is created. The sparsity of the discretized systems for the computation of limit cycles and their bifurcation points is exploited by using the standard Matlab sparse matrix methods. The MATLAB environment makes the standard MATLAB Ordinary Differential Equations (ODE) Suite interactively available and provides computational and visualization tools; it also eliminates the compilation stage and so makes installation straightforward. Compared to other packages such as AUTO and CONTENT, adding a new type of curves is easy in the MATLAB environment. We illustrate this by a detailed description of the limit point curve type.
