whirling pendulum; Hamiltonian system; autonomous perturbation; Melnikov function; limit cycle; homoclinic orbit; elliptic integral
The two-parameter Hamiltonian system with the autonomous perturbation is considered. Via the Mel’nikov method, existence and uniqueness of a limit cycle of the system in a certain region of a two-dimensional space of parameters is proved.
