Bifurcation of discontinuous limit cycles of the Van der Pol equation

In this paper, we apply the methods of B-equivalence and psi-substitution to prove the existence of discontinuous limit cycle for the Van der Pol equation with impacts on surfaces. The result is extended through the center manifold theory for coupled oscillators. The main novelty of the result is that the surfaces, where the jumps occur, are not flat. Examples and simulations are provided to demonstrate the theoretical results as well as application opportunities. (C) 2013 IMACS. Published by Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.


Bifurcation of a non-smooth planar limit cycle from a vertex
Akhmet, Marat (2009-12-15)
We investigate non-smooth planar systems of differential equations with discontinuous right-hand sides. Discontinuity sets intersect at a vertex, and are of quasilinear nature. By means of the B-equivalence method, which was introduced in [M. Akhmetov, Asymptotic representation of solutions of regularly perturbed systems of differential equations with a nonclassical right-hand side, Ukrainian Math. J. 43 (1991) 1209-1214; M. Akhmetov, On the expansion of solutions to differential equations with discontinuou...
Unbounded order convergence and the Gordon theorem#
Gorokhova, S.G.; Kutateladze, S.S. (2019-01-01)
The celebrated Gordon's theorem is a natural tool for dealing with universal completions of Archimedean vector lattices. Gordon's theorem allows us to clarify some recent results on unbounded order convergence. Applying the Gordon theorem, we demonstrate several facts on order convergence of sequences in Archimedean vector lattices. We present an elementary Boolean-Valued proof of the Gao-Grobler-Troitsky-Xanthos theorem saying that a sequence xn in an Archimedean vector lattice X is uo-null (uo-Cauchy) in ...
Large superconformal near-horizons from M-theory
Kelekci, O.; Lozano, Y.; Montero, J.; Colgain, E. O.; Park, M. (American Physical Society (APS), 2016-04-27)
We report on a classification of supersymmetric solutions to 11D supergravity with SO(2, 2) x SO(3) isometry, which are AdS/CFT dual to 2D CFTs with N = (0, 4) supersymmetry. We recover the Maldacena, Strominger, Witten near-horizon with small superconformal symmetry and identify a class of AdS(3) x S-2 x S-2 x CY2 geometries with emergent large superconformal symmetry. This exhausts known compact geometries. Compactification of M-theory on CY2 results in a vacuum of 7D supergravity with large superconforma...
Generalized Hybrid Surface Integral Equations for Finite Periodic Perfectly Conducting Objects
Karaosmanoglu, Bariscan; Ergül, Özgür Salih (2017-01-01)
Hybrid formulations that are based on simultaneous applications of diversely weighted electric-field integral equation (EFIE) and magnetic-field integral equation (MFIE) on periodic but finite structures involving perfectly conducting surfaces are presented. Formulations are particularly designed for closed conductors by considering the unit cells of periodic structures as sample problems for optimizing EFIE and MFIE weights in selected regions. Three-region hybrid formulations, which are designed by geneti...
Equivalence Principle Algorithm for Potential Integral Equations
Farshkaran, Ali; Ergül, Özgür Salih (2018-09-14)
We present a new frequency-domain implementation of the equivalence principle algorithm (EPA) using the recently developed potential integral equations (PIEs) as inner formulations. The set of equivalent sources is updated by including all components of electric and magnetic fields, as well as potentials required for PIEs. The developed implementation is stable when applied to challenging problems involving extremely dense discretizations with respect to wavelength, while it is efficient at the same time th...
