Abstract: Various known methods for studying the bifurcation of zeros of a Banach-space-valued mapping are unified under a single idea, akin to using a coordinate transformation to obtain a simple form of the function under consideration. The general nature of the hypotheses permits the dropping of the pervasive "Fredholm condition" of bifurcation theory.
