  From simple rules to order, fluctuations, chaos
The parameter k is plotted along the x-axis of the bifurcation diagram (from 1 on the right to 4 on the left).
For small and medium k values (to the left) what the bifurcation diagram shows is that (as we found earlier), the population reaches a single, stable population size (which increases with increasing values of k).
The bifurcation diagram is constructed by taking a particular value for the starting population size (x=0.125 is the default value, as shown below the staircase diagram) and then, for each value of k, iterating it a number of times (70 is the default value, as shown in the left slider above the diagram).

  Bifurcation Diagram
For all these reasons, a bifurcation diagram  is a particularly powerful method for studying the attractors in the quadratic map.
Recall that a bifurcation diagram is a plot of an asymptotic solution on the vertical axis and a control parameter on the horizontal axis.
Much of the structure in the bifurcation diagram can only be understood by keeping track of both the stable attracting solutions and the unstable repelling solutions, as we did in constructing the orbit stability diagram (Figure 2.13).

 Bifurcation diagram for quadratic maps
There is a good way to trace bifurcations of period of attracting orbit on the (x, c) plane by the bifurcation diagram of f (it is very similar to the "logistic bifurcation map").
At the lower part of the bifurcation diagram you see chaotic bands and white narrow holes of windows of periodic dynamics.
Bifurcation map (the right picture) compliments the "spider" and shows its interior.

 Bifurcation diagram - Definition, explanation
An example is the bifurcation diagram of the logistic map.
The bifurcation diagram nicely shows the forking of the possible periods of stable orbits from 1 to 2 to 4 to 8 etc. The ratio of the lengths of successive intervals between values of r for which bifurcation occurs converges to the Feigenbaum constant.
Hence this bifurcation diagram demonstrates a nice example of the importance of chaos theory in even very simple non-linear systems.

 1.3 Universality
As was shown in the diagrams, subregions within the bifurcation diagram look remarkably similar to each other and to the diagram as a whole.
In the quadratic case, the bifurcation diagram was finite and ended at a parameter value beyond which all orbits escaped to infinity.
As expected, the orbits gave a bifurcation diagram nearly identical to that for the quadratic map, but with a bit of a twist.

 Definition of Bifurcation diagram
The bifurcation diagram nicely shows the forking of the possible periods of stable orbits from 1 to 2 to 4 to 8 etc. The ratio of the values of r where bifurcation occurs is called the Feigenbaum constant.
Hence the bifurcation diagram is a nice example of the importance of chaos theory in even very simple non-linear systems.
Indeed, the bifurcation diagram is fractal, since any of the 'arms' in the periodic regions, when magnified, appear similar to the whole diagram.

 Bifurcation - Scholarpedia
One of the principal objectives of bifurcation theory is to prove the structural stability of normal forms.
One of the principal uses of bifurcation theory is to analyze the bifurcations that occur in specific families of dynamical systems.
Switching to the continuation of a periodic orbit at an Andronov-Hopf bifurcation or to the continuation of a saddle homoclinic bifurcation curve from the Bogdanov-Takens bifurcation are examples of such starting techniques based on normal form computations.

 Generic Cell Cycle Model
Bifurcations can help us to understand how the system reacts for parameter changes: A set of differential equations with a parameter set determine how the system will move in time from an initial condition, how the concentrations of the different regulators change.
Bifurcation theory can tell how the attractors of a system change for parameter modifications, so it can be used to understand how the transitions (bifurcations) between cell cycle phases (attractors) depend on certain parameters.
A one dimensional cut of this diagram is the one dimensional wild-type bifurcation diagram, and another cut is the one dimensional bifurcation diagram of the corresponding mutant.

 Lab 6.5 - To the Hopf Bifurcation
The bifurcations discussed in Lab 6 (pitchfork (super and subcritical), transcritical, fold/saddle node) come about when a single eigenvalue passes through zero as a result of a single parameter change.
This is a supercritical Hopf bifurcation with an exchange of stability from the critical point to the periodic orbit.
The physical relevance of the subcritical Hopf bifurcation is seen when the bifurcation parameter is moved from where there exists the stable steady state to where there exists only a large amplitude periodic solution.

 Chip Ross: "Complete" Bifurcation Diagram   (Site not responding. Last check: )
The orbit diagram shows for which values of c the function f(x)=x^2+c has an attracting cycle, and for which values of c the function exhibits chaotic behavior.
The two diagrams coincide whenever the orbit diagram shows an attracting cycle; where they don't coincide the bifurcation diagram shows repelling cycles.
Point D represents a period doubling bifurcation also, as points on an attracting 3-cycle (in yellow) become repelling as an attracting 6-cycle is born.

The bifurcation parameter r is shown on the horizontal axis of the plot and the vertical axis shows the possible long-term population values of the logistic function.
The bifurcation diagram nicely shows the forking of the possible periods of stable orbits from 1 to 2 to 4 to 8 etc. Each of these bifurcation points is a period-doubling bifurcation.

 Visualising bifurcations in high dimensional systems: The spectral bifurcation diagram
Bifurcation diagrams which allow one to visualise changes in the behaviour of low dimensional nonlinear maps as a parameter is altered are common.
Three techniques are considered; the first two, density and max/min diagrams, are analogous to the traditional bifurcation diagrams used for maps.
These diagrams are generally more difficult to interpret than the corresponding diagrams of maps, however, due to projection effects and the continuous nature of the flow.

For instance, mathematical and symbolic bifurcation analysis has led to an understanding of the possible dynamical behaviors that may arise out of simple gene systems (for a monograph, see [2], examples of more recent papers dealing with natural, designed, and model systems are [3-7]).
For cell cycle models, bifurcation diagrams have given biologists a systems-level perspective of the roles played by the various constituent modules, as well as providing the ability to predict the behavior of mutant cells [8,9].
For this particular model, the inverse bifurcation problem is to map geometric as well as topological relationships in the bifurcation diagrams to conditions on the parameters.

 DynCyc97 - 4. Farmers-Bandits interaction under fixed authority
The analysis of the above given bifurcation diagram in the (z,E) space, allows us to derive the bifurcation diagram of the subsystem (2a-b) in the space (x,y,z) (where we must not forget, that z is a parameter) for fixed values of E.
All these diagrams are qualitative diagrams, both because the curves have been deformed for the sake of illustration, and because the dimension of the limit cycle cannot obviously be ascertained from the above bifurcation diagram.
This bifurcation diagram given for an value of E equal to E2, is very similar to the above one, the first in this series of bifurcation diagrams in the space (x,y,z).
