# A Mathematica program for the approximate analytical solution to a nonlinear undamped Duffing equation by a new approximate approach

## Description

Abstract According to Mickens [R.E. Mickens, Comments on a Generalized Galerkin's method for non-linear oscillators, J. Sound Vib. 118 (1987) 563], the general HB (harmonic balance) method is an approximation to the convergent Fourier series representation of the periodic solution of a nonlinear oscillator and not an approximation to an expansion in terms of a small parameter. Consequently, for a nonlinear undamped Duffing equation with a driving force B cos ( ω x ) , to find a periodic solutio...
