Rucklidge, AM, Silber, M and Fineberg, J (2003) Secondary instabilities of hexagons: a bifurcation analysis of experimentally observed Faraday wave patterns. In: Buescu, EJ, Castro, SBSD, Dias, APS and Labouriau, IS, (eds.) Bifurcations, Symmetry and Patterns. Trends in Mathematics . Birkhauser Verlag , 101 - 114 . ISBN 978-3-7643-7020-6
We examine three experimental observations of Faraday waves generated by two-frequency forcing, in which a primary hexagonal pattern becomes unstable to three different superlattice patterns. We analyse the bifurcations involved in creating the three new patterns using a symmetry-based approach. Each of the three examples reveals a different situation that can arise in the theoretical analysis.
