It is shown that a fixed point of the renormalization group transformation for a system of two subsystems with unidirectional coupling, one represented by a unimodal map with extremum of degree κ and another by a map accumulating a sum of terms expressed as a function of a state of the first subsystem, undergoes a period-doubling bifurcation in a course of increase of the parameter κ. At κ = 2 the respective solution (period-2 cycle of the renormalization group equation) corresponds to a situation at the chaos threshold designated as the C-type critical behavior (Kuznetsov and Sataev, Phys. Lett., 1992, 236). On a basis of combination of analytic considerations and numerical computations, we construct and analyze an asymptotical expansion of the solution over powers of deflection of the parameter κ from the critical value κc = 1, 984396. The approach is analogous to that known in the phase transition theory as ε-expansion, which relates to presence of a bifurcation from a «trivial» fixed point of renormalization group transformation to a new fixed point, responsible for critical behavior with nontrivial critical indices.
