The stability and secondary bifurcations of transverse wave (TW) and standing wave (SW) solutions in a system describing a laser with a transversely anisotropic cavity was investigated. As such, the spatio-temporal dynamics just above threshold were studied by Ginsburg-Landau (GL) equations for two transverse Fourier modes of the field only. The stability of the GL equations shows that at the first laser threshold t;he SW was always unstable, whereas TW can be stable or unstable.
