Over the last twenty years the idea of restrict cycles, in particular for quadratic differential platforms, has advanced dramatically in China in addition to in different nations. This monograph, updating the 1964 first version, comprises those contemporary advancements, as revised by means of 8 of the author's colleagues of their personal parts of workmanship. the 1st a part of the booklet offers with restrict cycles of basic airplane desk bound platforms, together with their life, nonexistence, balance, and forte. the second one part discusses the worldwide topological constitution of restrict cycles and phase-portraits of quadratic structures. eventually, the final part collects vital effects which can now not be integrated less than the subject material of the former sections or that experience seemed within the literature very lately. The ebook as a complete serves as a reference for school seniors, graduate scholars, and researchers in arithmetic and physics.

**Ergodic Theory, Hyperbolic Dynamics and Dimension Theory**

During the last 20 years, the measurement conception of dynamical structures has gradually built into an autonomous and very lively box of study. the most goal of this quantity is to supply a unified, self-contained creation to the interaction of those 3 major components of analysis: ergodic thought, hyperbolic dynamics, and measurement idea.

14) limit cycle. PROOF. 13) ln(l)l < lnol (> lnol). 12) is asymptotically stable {negatively oriented, asymptotically stable). 9) is also asymptotically stable (negatively oriented, asymptotically stable) and it is obvious that r is a stable (unstable) limit cycle. COROLLARY (DILIBERTO). If H(s) < 0 (> 0) holds everywhere along a closed trajectory r then r is a stable (unstable) limit cycle [39]. 14) in a familiar form. jPJ + Q~ dt {T P. 2 1 Q2 [PJQyo- PoQo(Pyo + Qxo) + Q~Pxo] dt fo o + o = {T + Q _ PJPxo + PoQo(Pyo + Qxo) + Q~Qyo] dt fo xo.

22 ) From this it is obvious "111'(0) < 0 (> 0) is equivalent to f~ H(8) d8 < 0 (> 0). In general, w(k)(O) can be obtained from the above method, but its representation formula becomes more complicated ask increases (see [40]). , (0) = "Ill" (0) = "Ill"' (0) = 0, etc. From the above formulas we see that in order to compute "111 11 (0), "111 111 (0), ... we first have to compute 2 (8, 0), F::~ (8, 0), ... , the coefficients of the Taylor series expansion of F(8, n) at n = 0. In the following, we introduce a method of the Japanese mathematician Minoru Urabe [41]; using this method we can also obtain, when r is a periodic cycle, the approximate representation formula for the period of a closed trajectory in the vicinity of r if we know that the period of r is T.

1). ,P(s)). e. 7) Qo = Q(rp(8),'1/1(8)). -7'(-78)----''1/1":-:'-7-(87)(7-:d----'n/,. 6) represents a coordinate transformation which preserves its orientation. 1), measured from the point on r instead, then the coordinate transformation can even be global; but this fact is not needed here. 8) = F(s, n). 8) to study the stability of r. 8) is a nonlinear equation with periodic coefficients, taking n as unknown function and s as independent variable. 5). 8) can be written as dn/ds = F~(s, n)in=O · n + o(n).
