Abstract:

Many diverse applied methods of investigating oscillations of nonlinear systems often in different mathematical formulations and outwardly not related to each other have been developed at the present time. The book deals with a systematic examination of several applied problems in the theory of nonlinear oscillations using the method of integral equations. By this approach it proves possible to establish an intimate relationship between small-parameter classical methods and the methods of investigating nonlinear systems of automatic control based on the so-called filter hypothesis, and to give the latter a rigorous foundation. All the results thus obtained are applicable to a broad class of systems described by nonlinear operator equations. The book also considers certain problems of periodic oscillations unrelated to the use of integral equations.
