Linearization of Conservative Nonlinear Oscillators
Belendez, A.; Alvarez, M. L.; Fernandez, E.; Pascual, I.
European Journal of Physics, v30 n2 p259-270 Mar 2009
A linearization method of the nonlinear differential equation for conservative nonlinear oscillators is analysed and discussed. This scheme is based on the Chebyshev series expansion of the restoring force which allows us to obtain a frequency-amplitude relation which is valid not only for small but also for large amplitudes and, sometimes, for the complete range of oscillation amplitudes. Some conservative nonlinear oscillators are analysed to illustrate the usefulness and effectiveness of the technique. (Contains 6 figures.)
