Algebraic equations with invariant coefficients in qualitative study of the polynomial homogeneous differential systems. (English)

Authors: Baltag Valeriu


For planar polynomial homogeneous real vector field X=(P,Q) with deg(P) = deg(Q) = n some algebraic equations of degree n+1 with GL(2,R)-invariant coefficients are constructed. A recurrent method for the construction of these coefficients is given. In the generic case each real or imaginary solution si(i=1,2,..., n+1) of the main equation is a value of the derivative of the slope function, calculated for the corresponding invariant line. Other constructed equations have, respectively, the solutions 1/si, 1-si, si/(si - 1), (si-1)/si, 1/(1-si). The equation with the solutions (n+1)si-1 is called residual equation. If X has real invariant lines, the values and signs of solutions of constructed equations determine the behavior of the orbits in a neighbourhood at infinity. If X has not real invariant lines, it is shown that the necessary and sufficient conditions for the center existence can be expressed through the coefficients of residual equation.
