Topic Information

Dear Colleagues,

Hamiltonian systems have been one of the most influential ideas in the theory of dynamical systems and in the formulation of physical theories ever since their discovery by J. L. Lagrange and W. R. Hamilton. Due to their appealing theoretical properties, they are a central node at the intersection of topology, geometry and dynamical systems. Moreover, they are being used to lay the foundations of an ever-growing number of applications that span from classical and quantum mechanics to statistical physics and general relativity, from chemical reactions to thermodynamics, and from evolutionary game theory to models of biological evolution and data science. The flourishing of so many different fields of application has, in turn, increased the number of relevant questions that must be addressed about these systems. The result is that there is currently so much investigation going on concerning Hamiltonian systems and their Lagrangian counterparts that it is hard—if not impossible—to keep track of all the new questions and results appearing in the literature, and there is a pressing need for synthesis of all these directions. The aim of this Topic is to provide an opportunity to anyone interested in Hamiltonian systems, from very different perspectives, to join their works together as part of a collection, which will take a broad as well as unified view of the state of the art regarding the knowledge on Hamiltonian systems with regard to both theory and applications.

This paper studies the number of small limit cycles produced around an elementary center for Hamiltonian differential systems with the elliptic Hamiltonian function H=12y2+12x223x3+a4x4(a0) under two types of polynomial perturbations of degree m, respectively. It is proved that the Hamiltonian system perturbed in Liénard systems can have at least [3m14] small limit cycles near the center, where m101, and that the related near-Hamiltonian system with general polynomial perturbations can have at least m+[m+12]2 small-amplitude limit cycles, where m16. Furthermore, in any of the cases, the bounds for limit cycles can be reached by studying the isolated zeros of the corresponding first order Melnikov functions and with the help of Maple programs. Here, [·] represents the integer function. Full article
