In some circumstances (degenerations) it is essential to add higher-order nonlinear coefficients to a Ginzburg-Landautype modulation equation (which only has one cubic nonlinearity). In this paper we study these degenerate modulationequations. We consider the important situation in which the equation has real coefficients and the case of coefficients withsmall imaginary parts. First we determine the stability of periodic solutions. The stationary problem is, like in thenon-degenerate case, integrable: there exist families of quasi-periodic and homoclinic solutions. This system is perturbed byconsidering modulation equations with coefficients with small imaginary parts. We establish that there exists an unboundeddomain in parameter space in which the modulation equation has quasi-periodic solutions. Moreover, we show that there isa manifold of codimension I (in parameter space) on which the homoclinic solutions survive the perturbation.
