Computation of Smooth Manifolds Via Rigorous Multi-parameter Continuation in Infinite Dimensions
In this paper, we propose a path-following method for computing a curve of equilibria of a dynamical system, based upon the smooth Singular Value Decomposition (SVD) of the Jacobian matrix. Our method is capable of detecting fold points, and continuing past folds. It is also able to detect branch points and to switch branches at such points. Algorithmic details and examples are given.
