This book expounds the theory of non-linear vibrations, a topic of great interest at present because of its many applications to important fields in physics and engineering. After introducing chapters giving the basic techniques for the study of non-linear systems the authors develop in detail the theory of selected topics encountered in their own work, presenting original material, approaches and results of analysis, and providing illustrations of useful applications.
