Qualitative analysis of certain generalized classes of quadratic oscillator systems
Abstract
We carry out a systematic qualitative analysis of the two quadratic schemes of generalized oscillators recently proposed by Quesne [J. Math. Phys. 56, 012903 (2015)]. By performing a local analysis of the governing potentials, we demonstrate that while the first potential admits a pair of equilibrium points one of which is typically a center for both signs of the coupling strength λ, the other points to a centre for λ < 0 but a saddle λ > 0. On the other hand, the second potential reveals only a center for both the signs of λ from a linear stability analysis. We carry out our study by extending Quesne’s scheme to include the effects of a linear dissipative term. An important outcome is that we run into a remarkable transition to chaos in the presence of a periodic force term fcosωt.

Connection between stability and the nonexistence of unstable proper normal modes for certain classes of perturbations of gravitating systems
In a previous paper, it was shown how one may avoid the question of completeness and yet establish a connection between stability and the nonexistence of socalled unstable proper normal modes for the nonradial perturbations of generalrelativistic spherical stellar models. In this paper that result is generalized to include a variety of perturbations of systems in Newtonian theory and in general relativity. The generalized result is valid for certain systems and perturbations whose normal modes are governed by a selfadjoint variational principle in which the frequency of oscillation only enters quadratically. Dodging the question of completeness, this paper establishes thatmore » 
A Dynamical Systems Analysis of Semidefinite Programming with Application to Quadratic Optimization with Pure Quadratic Equality Constraints
This paper considers the problem of minimizing a quadratic cost subject to purely quadratic equality constraints. This problem is tackled by first relating it to a standard semidefinite programming problem. The approach taken leads to a dynamical systems analysis of semidefinite programming and the formulation of a gradient descent flow which can be used to solve semidefinite programming problems. Though the reformulation of the initial problem as a semidefinite pro gramming problem does not in general lead directly to a solution of the original problem, the initial problem is solved by using a modified flow incorporating a penalty function. 
Embeddings of classes of continuous functions in classes of functions of bounded generalized variation
This paper is an investigation of necessary and sufficient conditions for embeddings of the function classes H{sup {omega}} in classes of functions of bounded generalized variation. Theorems of a general character are obtained, along with embedding theorems under certain additional conditions imposed on the modulus of continuity.
