Abstract:

The question of existence and the number of periodic solutions normal modes for a classical mechanical system is a problem as old as the field of analytical mechanics itself. The development of the nonlinear functional analysis has renewed interest in these problems. This paper considers a mechanical system which is constrained in a potential well.
