Abstract:

A general bifurcation theorem for potential operators is proved. It describes the possible behavior of the set of solutions of an operator equation as a function of the eigenvalue parameter in a neighborhood of the bifurcation point. The theorem applies in particular to buckling problems in elasticity theory as well as to other fields in which the bifurcation problems have a variational formulation. Author
