Van der Pol oscillators generated from grazing dynamics

In this paper, we take into account two coupled Van der Pol equations with impacts. The main novelty is that the degenerated system for the model admits an oscillation with zero impact velocity. To prove presence of oscillations, beside the perturbation method, the newly developed linearization for dynamics with grazing has been applied. As different from the theoretical results such as Nordmark mapping and Zero time discontinuity mapping, the grazing is examined through another method of discontinuous dynamics, which diminishes the role of mappingsin the analysis. The rich diversity of changes in the dynamics is observed under regular perturbations, since of the grazing discontinuity. By means of the simulation results, the analytical studies are visualized.

Bifurcation of discontinuous limit cycles of the Van der Pol equation
Akhmet, Marat (2014-01-01)
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. ...

Oscillation of integro-dynamic equations on time scales
Grace, Said R.; Graef, John R.; Zafer, Ağacık (2013-04-01)
In this paper, the authors initiate the study of oscillation theory for integro-dynamic equations on time-scales. They present some new sufficient conditions guaranteeing that the oscillatory character of the forcing term is inherited by the solutions.
Non-Markovian diffusion over a parabolic potential barrier: Influence of the friction-memory function
YILMAZ, BÜLENT; Ayik, S.; Abe, Y.; Boilley, D. (American Physical Society (APS), 2008-01-01)
The over-passing probability across an inverted parabolic potential barrier is investigated according to the classical and quantal generalized Langevin equations. It is shown that, in the classical case, the asymptotic value of the over-passing probability is determined by a single dominant root of the "characteristic function," and it is given by a simple expression. The expression for the over-passing probability is quite general, and details of dissipation mechanism and memory effects enter into the expr...
Energy Stable Discontinuous Galerkin Finite Element Method for the Allen-Cahn Equation
Karasözen, Bülent; Sariaydin-Filibelioglu, Ayse; Yücel, Hamdullah (2018-05-01)
In this paper, we investigate numerical solution of Allen-Cahn equation with constant and degenerate mobility, and with polynomial and logarithmic energy functionals. We discretize the model equation by symmetric interior penalty Galerkin (SIPG) method in space, and by average vector field (AVF) method in time. We show that the energy stable AVF method as the time integrator for gradient systems like the Allen-Cahn equation satisfies the energy decreasing property for fully discrete scheme. Numerical result...
