In this work, a differential delay equation (DDE) with a cubic nonlinearity is analyzed as two parameters are varied by means of a center manifold reduction. This reduction is applied directly to the case where the system undergoes a Hopf-Hopf bifurcation. This procedure replaces the original DDE with four first-order ODEs, an approximation valid in the neighborhood of the Hopf-Hopf bifurcation. Analysis of the resulting ODEs shows that two separate periodic motions (limit cycles) and an additional quasiperiodic motion are born out of the Hopf-Hopf bifurcation. The analytical results are shown to agree with numerical results obtained by applying the continuation software package DDE-BIFTOOL to the original DDE. This system has analogues in coupled microbubble oscillators.
