PREFACE THE
purpose of this book is to provide engineers and physicists with a practical introduction to the important subject of nonlinear differential equations,
and to give representative applications
in
engineering and physics. The literature, to date, exceeds 300 memoirs, some rather lengthy, and most of them dealing with applications in various branches of technology. By comparison, the theoretical side of the Subject has been neglected. Moreover, owing to the absence of a concise theoretical background, and the need to
book for economical reasons, the text is confined methods employed A wide variety of these is included, and practical details given in the hope that they will interest and help the technical reader. Accordingly, the book is not an analytical treatise with technical applications. It aims to show how certain types of nonlinear problems may be solved, and how experimental results may be interpreted by aid of non linear analysis. The reader who desires information on the justification of the methods employed, should consult the references marked with an

CHAPTER

GENERAL INTRODUCTION IN the socalled
classical theories of different
differential equations are
mainly
branches of science the
linear in type.
They have been the
subject of intense study, and the existence of wellknown forms of solutions is now established beyond doubt. If anyone skilled in
mathematical analysis encounters a linear differential equation of standard type, the formal solution is usually not difficult to obtain. The comparatively simple nature of such equations is due to the 'characteristic' relationships of the systems, \vhich they describe symbolically, being assumed to be linear. For instance the characteristic relationship used in developing the theory of sound propagation in air is the adiabatic law pvY = a constant. Now the graphical relationship between p and v is a curve, no finite portion of which is linear. To overcome this difficulty from a mathematical viewpoint, the theory is based upon infinitesimal pressure variation, so it is
assumed that the adiabatic curve may be replaced at the workingpoint by its tangent. In practice all audible sounds necessitate finite pressure amplitude. Fortunately, however, there is no need to depart from the linear theory based on infinitesimal (and, therefore, inaudible) vibrations, until the sound is fairly intense. In modem science certain phenomena cannot be explained on the classical linear doctrine, and it is then imperative to resort to nonlinear differential equations in order to deduce the desired information. For example, consider a lowly damped vibrational system whose is represented by ay {by* (y the displacement), the driven we have the system being by a force fcosajt. When 6 2 co ).

differential equation, formulae are obtainable
frequency curves may be plotted. multivalued nature of A l may be explained by aid of such curves. One arresting and important feature of the analysis reveals that the
motion is nearly sinusoidal. Formulae for the nonlinear case, obtained merely to a second approximation, are adequate to enable a satisfactory explanation of the behaviour of the system to be given, whereas on a linear basis it could not be explained at all!
Some
thirty years ago our knowledge of nonlinear differential equations might have been compared with that of linear differential
equations at the time of Newton, Leibnitz, and the elder Bernoullis (James and John), i.e. about the beginning of the eighteenth century. Until recently the subject of nonlinear differential equations has been a happy (!) huntingground populated almost exclusively by the

in Britain, with very
promising results [269, 131 a]. Although the analytical difficulties to be encountered in setting the subject of nonlinear differential equations
on a firm foundation are formidable,
it is
here precisely that the
pure mathematician can help the technologist. Such assistance will ultimately be mirrored in new technical devices destined to benefit the community in general and, therefore, the pure mathematician in particular.
When a problem involving a new kind of nonlinear equation arises, or
new
nonlinear boundary conditions are encountered, the technologist may be puzzled as to the proper form of solution to be assumed. Usually these equations cannot be integrated explicitly in terms of
known
functions. Thus the solution must be adequate to account for

knowledge of the experimental aspect of a problem may give guidance as regards an appropriate form of solution, e.g. 7.230.
But it will be realized that the accumulation of experimental data
may

be either too costly or impracticable, so that other must then be invoked. Graphical or numerical methods, procedure although tedious, are sometimes useful. Better still is the employment of a differential analyser, or an electronic computing machine. From a purely utilitarian point of view, difficult and troublesome nonlinear differential equations involving much numerical work are best solved by a machine. Just as the expert craftsman in various branches of industry has been replaced largely so in the

may be replaced by other calculating machines. Then the intrinsic interest in mathematical problems will have ceased to exist. At the moment, however, these machines are so rare and the differential
