Abstract

A system of three coupled van der Pol oscillators with delay is considered. Hopf bifurcations at the zero equilibrium as the delay increases are exhibited. The existence and stability of multiple periodic solutions are established using a symmetric Hopf bifurcation result of Wu (Trans. Amer. Math. Soc. 350 (1998) 4799–4838).
