A simple method for constructing non-liouvillian first integrals of autonomous planar systems

Axel Schulze-Halberg (2006)

Czechoslovak Mathematical Journal

We show that a transformation method relating planar first-order differential systems to second order equations is an effective tool for finding non-liouvillian first integrals. We obtain explicit first integrals for a subclass of Kukles systems, including fourth and fifth order systems, and for generalized Liénard-type systems.

Abelian integrals in holomorphic foliations.

Hossein Movasati (2004)

Revista Matemática Iberoamericana

The aim of this paper is to introduce the theory of Abelian integrals for holomorphic foliations in a complex manifold of dimension two. We will show the importance of Picard-Lefschetz theory and the classification of relatively exact 1-forms in this theory. As an application we identify some irreducible components of the space of holomorphic foliations of a fixed degree and with a center singularity in the projective space of dimension two. Also we calculate higher Melnikov functions under some...

Algebraic integrability for minimum energy curves

Ivan Yudin, Fátima Silva Leite (2015)


This paper deals with integrability issues of the Euler-Lagrange equations associated to a variational problem, where the energy function depends on acceleration and drag. Although the motivation came from applications to path planning of underwater robot manipulators, the approach is rather theoretical and the main difficulties result from the fact that the power needed to push an object through a fluid increases as the cube of its speed.

Bifurcations of limit cycles from cubic Hamiltonian systems with a center and a homoclinic saddle-loop.

Yulin Zhao, Zhifen Zhang (2000)

Publicacions Matemàtiques

It is proved in this paper that the maximum number of limit cycles of system⎧ dx/dt = y⎨⎩ dy/dt = kx - (k + 1)x2 + x3 + ε(α + βx + γx2)yis equal to two in the finite plane, where k > (11 + √33) / 4 , 0 < |ε| << 1, |α| + |β| + |γ| ≠ 0. This is partial answer to the seventh question in [2], posed by Arnold.

Counting fixed points of a finitely generated subgroup of Aff [C].

F. Loray, M. Van Der Put, F. Recher (2004)

Publicacions Matemàtiques

Given a finitely generated subgroup G of the group of affine transformations acting on the complex line C, we are interested in the quotient Fix( G)/G. The purpose of this note is to establish when this quotient is finite and in this case its cardinality. We give an application to the qualitative study of polynomial planar vector fields at a neighborhood of a nilpotent singular point.

Mihajlova, Ana (2004)

Serdica Mathematical Journal

2000 Mathematics Subject Classification: Primary 34C07, secondary 34C08.We obtain an upper bound for the number of zeros of the Abelian integral.The work was partially supported by contract No 15/09.05.2002 with the Shoumen University “K. Preslavski”, Shoumen, Bulgaria.

Homogeneous polynomial vector fields of degree 2 on the 2-dimensional sphere.

Jaume Llibre, Claudio Pessoa (2006)

Extracta Mathematicae

Let X be a homogeneous polynomial vector field of degree 2 on S2 having finitely many invariant circles. Then, we prove that each invariant circle is a great circle of S2, and at most there are two invariant circles. We characterize the global phase portrait of these vector fields. Moreover, we show that if X has at least an invariant circle then it does not have limit cycles.

Inverse problems in the theory of analytic planar vector fields.

Natalia Sadovskaia, Rafael O. Ramírez (1998)

Revista Matemática Iberoamericana

In this communication we state and analyze the new inverse problems in the theory of differential equations related to the construction of an analytic planar verctor field from a given, finite number of solutions, trajectories or partial integrals.Likewise, we study the problem of determining a stationary complex analytic vector field Γ from a given, finite subset of terms in the formal power series (...).

On the number of limit cycles of a generalized Abel equation

Naeem Alkoumi, Pedro J. Torres (2011)

Czechoslovak Mathematical Journal

New results are proved on the maximum number of isolated T -periodic solutions (limit cycles) of a first order polynomial differential equation with periodic coefficients. The exponents of the polynomial may be negative. The results are compared with the available literature and applied to a class of polynomial systems on the cylinder.

On the number of zeros of Melnikov functions

Sergey Benditkis, Dmitry Novikov (2011)

Annales de la faculté des sciences de Toulouse Mathématiques

We provide an effective uniform upper bound for the number of zeros of the first non-vanishing Melnikov function of a polynomial perturbations of a planar polynomial Hamiltonian vector field. The bound depends on degrees of the field and of the perturbation, and on the order k of the Melnikov function. The generic case k = 1 was considered by Binyamini, Novikov and Yakovenko [BNY10]. The bound follows from an effective construction of the Gauss-Manin connection for iterated integrals.
