We study a ring cavity filled with a Kerr-like medium. We allow the nonlinear medium to be a composite material with positive (PRM) or negative (NRM) refractive index . The cavity is subject to a linearly or elliptically polarized incoming field. If the nonlinear material is a composite material, either NRM or PRM, intense nonlinear efects may be expected. Also, the coupling parameter between dierent polarizations, B, may take a wide range of possible values (at odds with "classical" materials) . Also, nonlinear magnetization may arise , so that equations for magnetic eld propagation (which should also couple to the electric eld) are expected . In the mean eld limit, we found that Electric and Magnetic eld should remain proportional , so that cavity can be described by means of two coupled Lugiato Lefever  equations. For linearly polarized fields, We find that considering a NRM does not bring cualitatively diferent behaviour, althoug stability of some solutions may vary . Results for NRM can be related to results for PRM. We have found that, depending on B and the cavity detuning, steady homogeneous solutions may present multiple bifurcations: up to two pitchfork birurcations and more that two saddle node biurcations for some xed parameters as we vary the imput intensity . Pattern formation is also studied. Examples of marginal instability diagrams are shown. It is shown that, within the model, instabilities cannot be of codimension higher than 3. A method for nding parameters for which codimension 2 or 3 takes place is given. The method allows us to choose parameters for which unstable wavenumbers fulll diferent relations. Numerical integration results where diferent instabilities coexist and compete are shown . References      D.R. Smith, W.J. Padilla, D.C. Vier, S.C. Nemat-Nasser and S. Schultz, Phys. Rev.
