Bifurcation Analysis for a Physiological Control System with Delay

Authors: Kejun Zhuang


In this paper, a delayed physiological control system is investigated. The sufficient conditions for stability of positive equilibrium and existence of local Hopf bifurcation are derived. Furthermore, global existence of periodic solutions is established by using the global Hopf bifurcation theory. Finally, numerical examples are given to support the theoretical analysis.

Keywords: Periodic solutions, Global Hopf bifurcation, Physiological control system
