Abstract: We study local bifurcation in equivariant dynamical systems from periodic solutions
with a mixture of spatial and spatiotemporal symmetries.
In previous work, we focused primarily on codimension one bifurcations. In this paper,
we show that the techniques used in codimension one analysis can be extended to
understand also higher codimension bifurcations, including resonant bifurcations and
mode interactions. In particular, we present a general reduction scheme by which we
relate bifurcations from periodic solutions to bifurcations from fixed points of twisted
equivariant diffeomorphisms, which in turn are linked via normal form theory to
bifurcations from equilibria of equivariant vectorfields. We also obtain a general theory
for bifurcation from relative periodic solutions and we show how to incorporate time-reversal
symmetries into our framework.
