Stationary bifurcation control is studied under the assumption thatthe critical zero eigenvalue is uncontrollable for thelinearized system. The development facilitates explicit constructionof feedback control laws that render the bifurcation supercritical.Thus, the bifurcated equilibria in the controlled system are guaranteedstable. <p>Bothpitchfork bifurcation and transcritical bifurcation are addressed.The results obtained forpitchfork bifurcations apply to general nonlinear models smoothin the state and the control. For transcritical bifurcations,the results require the system to be affine in the control.
