Oscillatory shear of polymeric liquids in the non-linear regime generates higher harmonic contributions in the shear stress response. These non-linear contributions are analyzed in Fourier space with respect to the different frequencies and intensities. Simulated and experimental Fourier rheology spectra for atactic poly(propylene) melts are shown.
