On the Prescribed-period Problem for Autonomous Hamiltonian Systems
MetadataShow full metadata
Asymptotically quadratic and subquadratic autonomous Hamiltonian systems are considered. Lower bounds for the number of periodic solutions with a prescribed minimal period are obtained. These bounds are expressed in terms of the numbers of frequencies corresponding to the critical points of the Hamiltonian. Results are based on a global analysis of families of periodic solutions emanating from these points.
