Abstract
We set up a singularitytheoretic framework for classifying oneparameter steadystate bifurcations with hidden symmetries. This framework also permits a nontrivial linearization at the bifurcation point. Many problems can be reduced to this situation; for instance, the bifurcation of steady or periodic solutions to certain elliptic partial differential equations with Neumann or Dirichlet boundary conditions. We formulate an appropriate equivalence relation with its associated tangent spaces, so that the usual methods of singularity theory become applicable. We also present an alternative method for computing those matrixvalued germs that appear in the equivalence relations employed in the classification of equivariant bifurcation problems. This result is motivated by hidden symmetries appearing in a class of partial differential equations defined on an Ndimensional rectangle under Neumann boundary conditions.
