Localized roll patterns are structures that exhibit a spatially periodic profile in their center. When following such patterns in a system parameter in one space dimension, the length of the spatial interval over which these patterns resemble a periodic profile stays either bounded, in which case branches form closed bounded curves (“isolas”), or the length increases to infinity so that branches are unbounded in function space (“snaking”). In two space dimensions, numerical computations show that branches of localized rolls exhibit a more complicated structure in which both isolas and snaking occur. In this paper, we analyse the structure of branches of localized radial roll solutions in dimension 1+ε, with 0 < ε 1, through a perturbation analysis. Our analysis sheds light on some of the features visible in the planar case.
