This paper is a set of lecture notes on generic bifurcation and its applications with the emphasis on equations involving more than one independent parameter. The general theory is discussed for problems which are degenerate to order one or two. Applications are given primarily to the buckling of plates and shells with the parameters representing external forces, loading, imperfections, curvature and dimension. Author
