Qualitative Theory of Nonlinear Resonance by Averaging and Dynamical Systems Methods

This paper is a self-contained exposition of the theory of averaging for periodic and quasiperiodic systems, with the emphasis being on the author’s research (part of it joint work with Clark

Closeness of solutions and averaging for nonlinear systems on Riemannian manifolds

An averaging result for periodic dynamical systems evolving on Euclidean spaces is extended to those evolving on (differentiable) Riemannian manifolds by using standard tools from differential geometry to measure closeness of trajectories via a suitable metric on a finite time horizon.

Normalization and averaging on compact lie groups in nonlinear mechanics

We consider the method of normal forms, the Bogolyubov averaging method, and the method of asymptotic decomposition proposed by Yu. A. Mitropol’skii and the author of this paper. Under certain

An Algorithmic Approach to Limit Cycles of Nonlinear Differential Systems: The Averaging Method Revisited

An algorithmic approach to the analysis of bifurcation of limit cycles from the centers of nonlinear continuous differential systems via the averaging method is introduced and its effectiveness is shown by several examples.

Averaging Method for Strongly Nonlinear Oscillators with Periodic Excitations

An averaging method is developed to predict periodic solutions of strongly nonlinear and harmonically forced oscillators. The analysis is restricted to the case of period-1 orbits. The original

Symmetry-Breaking Bifurcations and Patterns of Oscillations in Rings of Crystal Oscillators

Symmetry is used to investigate the existence and stability of collective patterns of oscillations in rings of coupled crystal oscillators. We assume $N$ identical crystal oscillators, where each o...
