Abstract

In 1986, Fabry, Mawhin and Nkashama [1] have considered periodic solutios for Lienard equation $$ (1_s) x" + f(x)x' + g(t,x) = s, $$ where s is a real parameter, f and g are continuous functions, and g is $2\pi$-periodic in t and have proved that if $$ (H) lim_{$\mid$x$\mid$\to\infty} g(t,x) = \infty uniformly in t \in [0,2\pi], $$ there exists $s_1 \in R$ such that $(1_s)$ has no $2\pi$periodic solution if $s< s_1$, and at least one $2\pi$-periodic solution if $s = s_1$, and at least two $2\pi$-periodic solutions if $s > s_1$.s_1$.
