Abstract: Recently, it has been shown that properties of excitable media stirred by two-dimensional chaotic flows can be properly studied in a one-dimensional framework describing the transverse profile of the filament-like structures observed in the system. Here, we perform a bifurcation analysis of this one-dimensional approximation. Different branches of stable solutions and a Hopf bifurcation leading to an oscillating filament are described.
