Professor Ali Nayfeh is a well-known authority in the area of nonlinear dynamics and has an impressive record of research monographs and hundreds of published papers. This book comes as a result of the growing research interest in the nonlinear modal interaction in dynamical systems under various types of excitations and resonance conditions. The book presents the-state-of-the-art in eight chapters supported by an extensive bibliography. Chapter 1 serves as an essential foundation and presents basic ingredients of analyzing nonlinear-coupled differential equations.
The analysis of coupled systems with two-to-one internal resonance (essentially dictated by quadratic nonlinearity) under...
