VOL. 33 | 1994 Hopf bifurcation of a class of PDEs
Xiangjian He, Zhuhan Jiang

Editor(s) Gaven Marten, Bevan Thompson


The Hopf Bifurcation Theorem is the simplest result which guarantees the bifurcation of a family of time periodic solutions of an evolution equation from a family of equilibrium solutions. In this paper, we apply the theorem to a class of partial differential equations (PDEs). The usual assumption of differentiability of nonlinear terms is dropped by the employment of topological considerations. The method of parameter functionalization plays a very important role.
