Complex dynamics in the segmented disc dynamo

Abstract Related Papers Cited by
  • The present work is devoted to giving new insights into the segmented disc dynamo. The integrability of the system is studied. The paper provides its first integrals for the parameter $r=0$. For $r>0$, the system has neither polynomial first integrals nor exponential factors, and it is also further proved not to be Darboux integrable. In addition, by choosing an appropriate bifurcation parameter, the paper proves that Hopf bifurcations occur in the system and presents the formulae for determining the direction of the Hopf bifurcations and the stability of bifurcating periodic solutions.
