Hopf Cyclicity of a Family of Generic Reversible Quadratic Systems with One Center
- 7 Downloads
This paper is concerned with small quadratic perturbations to one parameter family of generic reversible quadratic vector fields with a simple center. The first objective is to show that this system exhibits two small amplitude limit cycles emerging from a Hopf bifurcation. The second one we prove that the system has no limit cycle around the weak focus of order two. The results may be viewed as a contribution to proving the conjecture on cyclicity proposed by Iliev (1998).
