The script demo1_POfold.m demonstrates the continuation of folds of periodic orbits. - sd_demo: step-by-step walk-through of basic DDE-Biftool usage for a system with state-dependent delays. This demo illustrates
- computation and continuation of steady states,
- computation of their stability,
- branching off to periodic orbits,
- continuation of periodic orbits,
- computation of their stability,
- continuation of Hopf bifurcations in two parameters,
- continuation of Hopf bifurcations in two parameters.

- hom_demo: Step-by-step walk-through of constructing and continuing connecting orbits between equilibria using DDE-Biftool.
- nmfm_demo: A demo focussing on the features of the ddebiftool_extra_nmfm extension. Along two branches of Hopf bifurcations, normal form coefficients (determining if the bifurcation is sub- or supercritical) are computed. Also, a number of codimension-two points along the Hopf branch are detected and their normal forms are computed, too.
- minimal_demo: This example (a Duffing oscillator with delayed feedback) demonstrates how to use the convenience functions from the folder ddebiftool_utilities and the extension in the folder ddebiftool_extra_psol to continue torus bifurcations and folds of periodic orbits in systems with parametric delays. It also demonstrates the option to vectorize the right-hand side to speed up computations, and computes normal forms along Hopf branches.
- nested: This example shows that DDE-Biftool can treat state-dependent delays with arbitrary levels of nesting.
- rotsym_demo: A demonstration of the DDE-Biftool extension in ddebiftool_extra_rotsym for rotationally symmetric systems using the Lang-Kobayashi equations (a model of a semiconductor lasers with delayed optical feedback). The demo illustrates
- definition of the rotational symmetry with a skew-symmetric matrix and how to incorporate this into the system definition,
- computation and continuation of relative equilibria (rotating waves),
- computation of their stability,
- branching off to relative periodic orbits (modulated waves),
- continuation of relative periodic orbits,
- computation of their stability,
- continuation of Hopf and fold bifurcations of relative equilibria in two parameters,
- continuation of period doublings and fold bifurcations of relative periodic orbits in two parameters,

- Mackey-Glass: This demo continues period doubling bifurcations in the well-known Mackey-Glass equation, a scalar DDE with parametric delay. It shows how one can branch off at a period doubling to track the period-doubled orbit. In this demo one can switch on or off vectorization to compare the speed of computations. Also included: normal form computation for Hopf bifurcation.
- Humphries et al: This demo continues folds and torus bifrucations in a scalar DDE with two state-dependent delays. It also demonstrates the option to vectorize right-hand side, delays, and their derivatives to speed up computations.
- phase oscillator (contributed by Azamat Yeldesbay): This demo shows that rotations (such as in phase oscillators or in a rotating forced pendulum) can be treated as periodic orbits.
- Holling-Tanner
model - Demo for Takens-Bogdanov point normal form (contributed
by Maikel Bosschaert). The demo shows the computation of test
functions for the Takens-Bogdanov point on a model discussed by Liu,
