cusp.extrema: Locate Extrema of Cusp Catastrophe Potential Function

Description Usage Arguments Details Value Note Author(s) See Also Examples

Description

This function computes the locations of the extrema of the cusp catastrophe potential function.

Usage

1

Arguments

alpha

(single) value of normal/symmetry factor

beta

(single) value of bifurcation/splitting factor

Details

The locations are determined by computing the solutions to the equation

α+β * X - X^3 = 0.

Value

Ordered vector with locations of extremes.

Note

Use Vectorize to allow for array input.
