Abstract : A software package has been written to compute the Hopf bifurcation structure in functional differential equations. The package is modular, and consists of several subroutines which perform one or more tasks. In conjunction with the routines available in this package, the user is required to provide a few routines which describe the specific system under analysis. Three example systems (from epidemology, biochemistry and aerospace engineering) have been analyzed to illustrate the use of this package. Keywords: Genetic repression; Combustion instability; Thesis; Theorems.
