Abstract: In Wierschem and Bertram model describing bursting modulated by slow glycolytic oscillation, different complex bursting patterns are produced by interaction of two slow variables with different time scales. Generation mechanisms of the complex bursting patterns with one or multiple short bursts and a long burst, are investigated by an extended fast/slow analysis, when a faster slow variable is considered as a bifurcation parameter of fast subsystem, while a slower slow variable only has an effect on bifurcation curves of the fast subsystem.
