A journal article, written jointly with Yuri Kuznetsov and Odo Diekmann and based on the contents of the above master thesis, is in preparation.
A partial implementation by M.Sc students of Yuri Kuznetsov can be found in the free software package DDE-BIFTOOL for numerical continuation and bifurcation analysis of delay differential equations with discrete delays.
