Non-normal parameter blowout bifurcation: An example in a truncated mean-field dynamo model
Covas, Eurico, Ashwin, Peter and Tavakol, Reza (1997) Non-normal parameter blowout bifurcation: An example in a truncated mean-field dynamo model Physical Review E, 56 . pp. 6451-6458.
We examine global dynamics and bifurcations occurring in a truncated model of a stellar mean-field dynamo. This model has symmetry-forced invariant subspaces for the dynamics and we find examples of transient type I intermittency and blowout bifurcations to transient on-off intermittency, involving laminar phases in the invariant submanifold. In particular, our model provides examples of blowout bifurcations that occur on varying a non-normal parameter; that is, the parameter varies the dynamics within the invariant subspace at the same time as the dynamics normal to it. As a consequence of this we find that the Lyapunov exponents do not vary smoothly and the blowout bifurcation occurs over a range of parameter values rather than a point in the parameter space.
