Most physical systems lose or gain stability through bifurcation behavior. This book explains a series of experimentally found bifurcation phenomena by means of the methods of static bifurcation theory.
Introduction to Bifurcation Behavior * Critical Point and Local Behavior * Imperfection Sensitivity Laws * Critical Initial Imperfections (I) * Stochasticity of Initial Imperfections (I) * Experimentally-observed Bifurcation Diagrams * Group-theoretic Bifurcation Theory * Bifurcation Behavior of Dn-equivariant Systems * Critical Initial Imperfections (II) * Stochasticity of Initial Imperfections (II) * Description of Bifurcation Behaviors * Bifurcation of Cylindrical Sand Specimens * Echelon-mode Formation * Bifurcation of Steel Specimens * Miscellaneous Aspects of Bifurcation Phenomena * References * Index
