On the number of limit cycles in discontinuous piecewise linear differential systems with two pieces separated by a straight line
MetadataShow full item record
In this paper we study the maximum number N of limit cycles that can exhibit a planar piecewise linear differential system formed by two pieces separated by a straight line. More precisely, we prove that this maximum number satisfies 2 <= N <= 4 if one of the two linear differential systems has its equilibrium point on the straight line of discontinuity.
