Abstract

The unfolding due to imperfections of a gluing bifurcation occuring in a periodically forced Taylor-Couette system is numerically analyzed. In the absence of imperfections, a temporal glide-reflection Z2 symmetry exists, and two global bifurcations occur within a small parameter region: a heteroclinic bifurcation between two saddle two-tori and a gluing bifurcation of three-tori. Due to the presence of imperfections, these two global bifurcations collide, strongly reducing the range of validity of the generic unfolding of the gluing bifurcation.
