    • A chaotic secure communication scheme based on duffing oscillators and frequency estimation 

      Zapateiro, Mauricio; Vidal Seguí, Yolanda; Acho Zuppa, Leonardo (2013)
      Conference report

      Article
      Open Access
      We present a description of isochronous centres of planar vector fields $X$ by means of their groups of symmetries. More precisely, given a normalizer $U$ of $X$ (i.e., $[X,U]=\mu X$, where $\mu$ is a scalar function), we ...

      Master thesis
      Open Access
      In this work we present a continuous queuing model called the logistic queue model. We show that in terms of queue size and outflow prediction, our model is as precise as a discrete event simulator with the additional ...
    • A new algorithm for finding rational first integrals of polynomial vector fields

      External research report
      Open Access
      We present a new method to compute rational first integrals of a planar polynomial vector field. The algorithm is in general much faster than the usual methods and also allows to compute the remarkable curves associated ...

    • Adaptive backstepping control of a class of hysteretic systems

      Part of book or chapter of book
      Open Access
      A backstepping-based adaptive control is designed for a class of one degree of freedom hysteretic system. The true hysteretic behavior does not need to be known for the controller design. A polynomial description is assumed ...
    • Adiabatic invariant of the harmonic oscillator, complex matching and resurgence 

      Bonet Revés, Carles; Sauzin, D.; Martínez-Seara Alonso, M. Teresa; València Guitart, Marta (1997)
      Article
      Open Access
      The linear oscillator equation with a frequency depending slowly on time is used to test a method to compute exponentially small quantities. This work present the matching method in the complex plane as a tool to obtain ...
    • An analytic-numerical method of computation of the Liapunov and period constants derived from their algebraic structure 

      Gasull Embid, Armengol; Guillamon Grabolosa, Antoni; Mañosa Fernández, Víctor (1996)
      Article
      Open Access
      We consider the problem of computing the Liapunov and the period constants for a smooth differential equation with a non degenerate critical point. First, we investigate the structure of both constants when they are ...
    • An explicit expression of the first Liapunov and period constants with applications 

      Gasull Embid, Armengol; Guillamon Grabolosa, Antoni; Mañosa Fernández, Víctor (1996)
      Article
      Open Access
      In this paper, we study systems in the plane having a critical point with pure imaginary eigenvalues, and we search for effective conditions to discern whether this critical point is a focus or a center; in the case of it ...
    • Bifurcation at complex instability 

      Ollé Torner, Mercè; Pfenniger, Daniel (1995)
      Article
      Open Access
      In an autonomous Hamiltonian system with three or more degrees of freedom, a family of periodic orbits may become unstable when two pairs of characteristic multipliers coallesce on the unit circle at points not equal to ...
    • Boundary value problems for Schrödinger operators on a Path Associated to Orthogonal Polynomials 

      Carmona Mejías, Ángeles; Encinas Bachiller, Andrés Marcos; Gago Álvarez, Silvia (Springer, 2013)
      Part of book or chapter of book
      Restricted access - publisher's policy
      In this work, we concentrate on determining explicit expressions, via suitable orthogonal polynomials on the line, for the Green function associated with any regular boundary value problem on a weighted path, whose weights ...
    • Bounded and dissipative solutions of the Bouc-Wen model for hysteretic structural systems 

      Ikhouane, Fayçal; Mañosa Fernández, Víctor; Rodellar Benedé, José (2004-06)
      Part of book or chapter of book
      Open Access
      The aim of this paper is to give the conditions on the hysteretic Bouc-Wen model so that (i) it has the property of being bounded input bounded output (BIBO), and (ii) it dissipates energy (or is passive). This study leads ...
    • Breakdown of heteroclinic orbits for analytic unfoldings of the hopf-zero singularity. The singular case 

      Baldomá Barraca, Inmaculada; Castejón i Company, Oriol; Martínez-Seara Alonso, M. Teresa (2011)
      External research report
      Open Access
      In this paper we prove the breakdown of an heteroclinic connection in the analytic versal unfoldings of the generic Hopf-Zero singularity. This heteroclinic orbit appears at any order if one performs the normal form around ...
    • Centers and uniform isochronous centers of planar polynomial differential systems 

      Llibre Saló, Jaume; Ramirez Inostroza, Rafael; Ramírez Sadovski, Valentín; Sadovskaia Nurimanova, Natalia Guennadievna (2018-09)
      Article
      Open Access
      For planar polynomial vector fields of the form (-y+X(x,y))¿¿x+(x+Y(x,y))¿¿y, where X and Y start at least with terms of second order in the variables x and y, we determine necessary and sufficient conditions under which ...

      We study the centre-focus problem for systems with homogeneous nonlinearities. In the centre case we study the characterization of the isochronous centres. More explicitly, we derive six necessary conditions to be a ...
