The Chaotic Behavior for Some Types of Local Bifurcations

Abstract: In this paper, we will investigate the chaotic behavior  for one-dimensional vector field to undergo a saddle node bifurcation, transcritical bifurcation and pitchfork bifurcation, and also, two-dimensional vector fields to undergo a Hopf bifurcation by calculating Lyapunov exponents.

 Keywords: Chaos; Saddle node bifurcation; Transcritical bifurcation; Pitchfork bifurcation; Hopf bifurcation.
