Bogdanov-Takens singularity in tri-neuron network with time delay. Academic Article uri icon


  • This brief reports a retarded functional differential equation modeling tri-neuron network with time delay. The Bogdanov-Takens (B-T) bifurcation is investigated by using the center manifold reduction and the normal form method. We get the versal unfolding of the norm forms at the B-T singularity and show that the model can exhibit pitchfork, Hopf, homoclinic, and double-limit cycles bifurcations. Some numerical simulations are given to support the analytic results and explore chaotic dynamics. Finally, an algorithm is given to show that chaotic tri-neuron networks can be used for encrypting a color image.
