This paper introduces a new practical method for distinguishing chaotic, periodic and quasi-periodic orbits based on a new criterion, and apply it to investigate the local bifurcations of the Chen system. Conditions for supercritical and subcritical bifurcations are obtained, with their parameter domains specified. The analytic results are also verified by numerical simulation studies.
