Global attraction to the origin in a parametrically driven nonlinear oscillator
Bartuccelli, Michele V., Deane, Jonathan H. B., Gentile, G. and Gourley, Stephen A. (2004) Global attraction to the origin in a parametrically driven nonlinear oscillator Applied Mathematics and Computation, 153 . pp. 1-11.
We consider a parametrically-driven nonlinear ODE, which encompasses a simple model of an electronic circuit known as a parametric amplifier, whose linearisation has a zero eigenvalue. By adopting two different approaches we obtain conditions for the origin to be a global attractor which is approached (a) non-monotonically and (b) monotonically. In case (b), we obtain an asymptotic expression for the convergence to the origin. Some further numerical results are reported.
