##### 1: 36.4 Bifurcation Sets
###### §36.4 BifurcationSets
$K=1$, fold bifurcation set: … $K=2$, cusp bifurcation set: … $K=3$, swallowtail bifurcation set: …
##### 2: 36.15 Methods of Computation
Far from the bifurcation set, the leading-order asymptotic formulas of §36.11 reproduce accurately the form of the function, including the geometry of the zeros described in §36.7. Close to the bifurcation set but far from $\mathbf{x}=\boldsymbol{{0}}$, the uniform asymptotic approximations of §36.12 can be used. …
##### 3: 36.5 Stokes Sets
The Stokes set is itself a cusped curve, connected to the cusp of the bifurcation set: … They generate a pair of cusp-edged sheets connected to the cusped sheets of the swallowtail bifurcation set36.4). … This consists of a cusp-edged sheet connected to the cusp-edged sheet of the bifurcation set and intersecting the smooth sheet of the bifurcation set. … In Figure 36.5.4 the part of the Stokes surface inside the bifurcation set connects two complex saddles. …
##### 4: 36.14 Other Physical Applications
The physical manifestations of bifurcation sets are caustics. …
##### 5: 36.7 Zeros
Deep inside the bifurcation set, that is, inside the three-cusped astroid (36.4.10) and close to the part of the $z$-axis that is far from the origin, the zero contours form an array of rings close to the planes …Outside the bifurcation set (36.4.10), each rib is flanked by a series of zero lines in the form of curly “antelope horns” related to the “outside” zeros (36.7.2) of the cusp canonical integral. …
