Liénard equation

Liénard equation   (Redirected from Liénard's theorem) Jump to navigation Jump to search In mathematics, more specifically in the study of dynamical systems and differential equations, a Liénard equation[1] is a second order differential equation, named after the French physicist Alfred-Marie Liénard.

During the development of radio and vacuum tube technology, Liénard equations were intensely studied as they can be used to model oscillating circuits. Under certain additional assumptions Liénard's theorem guarantees the uniqueness and existence of a limit cycle for such a system. A Liénard system with piecewise-linear functions can also contain homoclinic orbits [2].

Then the second order ordinary differential equation of the form {displaystyle {d^{2}x over dt^{2}}+f(x){dx over dt}+g(x)=0} is called the Liénard equation.

Liénard system The equation can be transformed into an equivalent two-dimensional system of ordinary differential equations. We define {displaystyle F(x):=int _{0}^{x}f(xi )dxi } {displaystyle x_{1}:=x} {displaystyle x_{2}:={dx over dt}+F(x)} then {displaystyle {begin{bmatrix}{dot {x}}_{1}\{dot {x}}_{2}end{bmatrix}}=mathbf {h} (x_{1},x_{2}):={begin{bmatrix}x_{2}-F(x_{1})\-g(x_{1})end{bmatrix}}} is called a Liénard system.

Alternatively, since the Liénard equation itself is also an autonomous differential equation, the substitution {displaystyle v={dx over dt}} leads the Liénard equation to become a first order differential equation: {displaystyle v{dv over dx}+f(x)v+g(x)=0} which belongs to Abel equation of the second kind.[3][4] Example The Van der Pol oscillator {displaystyle {d^{2}x over dt^{2}}-mu (1-x^{2}){dx over dt}+x=0} is a Liénard equation. The solution of a Van der Pol oscillator has a limit cycle. Such cycle has a solution of a Liénard equation with negative {displaystyle f(x)} at small {displaystyle |x|} and positive {displaystyle f(x)} otherwise. The Van der Pol equation has no exact, analytic solution. Such solution for a limit cycle exists if {displaystyle f(x)} is a constant piece-wise function.[5] Liénard's theorem A Liénard system has a unique and stable limit cycle surrounding the origin if it satisfies the following additional properties:[6] g(x) > 0 for all x > 0; {displaystyle lim _{xto infty }F(x):=lim _{xto infty }int _{0}^{x}f(xi )dxi =infty ;} F(x) has exactly one positive root at some value p, where F(x) < 0 for 0 < x < p and F(x) > 0 and monotonic for x > p.
