Double Hopf bifurcations have been studied prior to this work in the generic nonresonant case and in certain strongly resonant cases, including 1:1 resonance. In this paper, the case of symmetrically coupled identical oscillators, motivated by the classic problem of synchronization of Huygens' clocks, is studied using the codimension-three Elphick–Huygens(More)
A mathematical model of convection of a Boussinesq fluid in a rotating spherical shell is analyzed using numerical computations guided by bifurcation theory. The fluid is differentially heated on its inner spherical surface, with the temperature increasing from both poles to a maximum at the equator. The model is assumed to be both rotationally symmetric(More)
