Co-dimension two bifurcations in the presence of noise

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Some results pertaining to co-dimension two stochastic bifurcations are presented. The normal form associated with non-semi-simple double-zero eigenvalues is considered. The method of stochastic averaging applicable for singularly perturbed stochastic differential equations is used to further reduce the problem to a one-dimensional diffusion process. Probability density, most probable values, stability conditions in probability, and mean exit times are obtained for the reduced system.
