MatCont is a Matlab software project for the numerical continuation and bifurcation study of continuous and discrete parameterized dynamical systems. Leaders of the project are Willy Govaerts (Gent,B) and Yuri A. Kuznetsov (Utrecht,NL) and Hil G.E. Meijer (UT, Enschede, NL).

In case you're stuck, use the forum, but to get a good answer
1. What command do you give when this appears? Provide the exact steps (not all code, a simple example will suffice).
2. Indicate whether you use the GUI or CL version. Also Matlab-version and Operating System may help.
3. We hope you followed the tutorial(s)?

  • Excellent

  • Hello, I was excited to see that there is a continuation software with a Matlab interface so this is a very good addition. However, I have downloaded it (without problems ) but then when I tested it on a very simple problem (x'=r*x-x^2) I got a weird error that I do not know how to fix.

  • hi I download Matcont file, but I can not open it. can someone help me?

  • Excellent contribution ... thank you very much ...... I wonder because MATCONT not run on windows 8 64bit

  • Thanks for great project! Simply the best.Good,good,good.+1
