On some equations of the Duffing type


Fitouri, C. On some equations of the Duffing type. 2008, University of Zurich, Faculty of Science.

Abstract

In this thesis, we study some type of differential equations of second order, called Duffing
equations. These equations are used to describe the chaotic behavior of a mechanical
system in a double potential field. First, we study sufficient conditions under which an
equation of this type has bounded solutions. Basically, we try to prevent the chaotic
behavior of such bounded solutions. Secondly, we obtain a close-to-optimal bound of the
solution of equations of the Duffing type, in the large dumping case. Finally, we find
the sharp estimates of bounded solutions of certain semilinear second order dissipative
equations.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
