Abstract

One classic problem in the qualitative theory of ordinary differential equations (ODE's) is the local planar singular point caracterization of vector systems. This problem is completely solved, except to the monodromic case, where the orbits turn around the singular point.In analytic differential systems, a monodromic singular point is either a center or a focus. The investigation that deals with the distinction between center and focus in such systems is called the center-focus problem. The problem can be divided in three cases: linear type (nondegenerate), nilpotent, and degenerate points.This project has the purpose of investigating nilpotent and degenerate centers in cubic and quartic differential systems.
