Stable Periodic Solutions of Periodic Systems of Differential Equations



An infinitely differentiable periodic two-dimensional system of differential equations is considered. It is assumed that there is a hyperbolic periodic solution and there exists a homoclinic solution to the periodic solution. It is shown that, for a certain type of tangency of the stable manifold and unstable manifold, any neighborhood of the nontransversal homoclinic solution contains a countable set of stable periodic solutions such that their characteristic exponents are separated from zero.
