    The purpose of the present investigation was to determine rigourously the parameter ranges for instability, bistability, and especially chaos in the system. The approach used was analytical. Maple, Mathematica and purpose–written programs in C and MODULA-2 were employed for symbolic manipulation, emulation, curve– and surface– sketching, root–solving, and estimation. This approach enabled us to identify parameter values for which an extensive range of pathological behaviour is exhibited, including various kinds of chaos. Emulation proved consistent with these findings.
