Detection of high codimensional bifurcations in variational PDEs

INI Seminar Room 1
We derive bifurcation test equations for A-series
singularities of nonlinear functionals and, based on these equations, we
propose a numerical method for detecting high codimensional bifurcations in
parameter-dependent PDEs such as parameter-dependent semilinear Poisson
equations. As an example, we consider a Bratu-type problem and show how high
codimensional bifurcations such as the swallowtail bifurcation can be found
numerically. Lisa Maria Kreusser, Robert I McLachlan, Christian Offen
