SIAM Conference on Applied Linear Algebra location:Monterey date:26-29 October 2009
The determination of Hopf bifurcations of a dynamical system is often a challenging problem. The goal is to compute the system parameter values for which the system has purely imaginary eigenvalues. In this talk, we present a method that computes these parameter values without computing the imaginary eigenvalues themselves. The method is based on residual inverse iteration for a problem of squared dimension.
