In ordinary differential equations of singular perturbation type, the dynamics of solutions near saddle-node bifurcations of equilibria are rich. Canard solutions can arise, which, after spending time near an attracting equilibrium, stay near a repelling branch of equilibria for long intervals of time before finally returning to a neighborhood of the(More)
Continuation techniques have been known to successfully describe bifurcation diagrams appearing in slow-fast systems with more than one slow variable (see eg. [12]). In this paper we investigate the usefulness of numerical continuation techniques dealing with some solved and some open problems in the study of planar singular perturbations. More precisely,(More)
This paper concerns the study of small-amplitude limit cycles that appear in the phase portrait near an unfolded fake saddle singularity. This degenerate singularity is also known as a impassable grain. The normal form of the unperturbed vector field is like a degenerate flow box. Near the singularity,the phase portrait consists of parallel fibers, all of(More)
