Using techniques from local bifurcation theory, we prove the existence of various types of temporally periodic solutions for damped wave equations, in higher dimensions. The emphasis is on understanding the role of external bifurcation parameters and symmetry, in generating the periodic motion. The work presented is joint with Brian Pigott
