Description: In this paper we build an our previous work to compute Hopf bifurcation points for chemical reaction systems on the basis of reaction coordinates. For determining the existence of Hopf bifurcations, the main algorithmic problem is to determine whether a single multivariate polynomial has a zero with positive coordinates. For this purpose, we provide heuristics on the basis of the Newton polytope that ensure the existence of positive and negative values of the polynomial for positive coordinates. We apply our method to the example of the Methylene Blue Oscillator (MBO).
