Summary:In the present book the modern theory of non-linear oscilla- tions both regular and chaotic, is set out, primarily, as applied to mechanical problems. The material is presented in a non-traditional manner with emphasizing of the new results of the theory otained partially by the author, who is one of the leading experts in the area. Among the up-to-date topics are synchronization and chaotization of self-oscillatory sy- stems, the influence of weak random vibration on modificati- on of characteristics and behavior of the non-linear systems etc. One of the purposes of the book is to convince the rea- ders of the necessity of a thorough study of this theory and to show that it can be very useful in engineering investiga- tions. The primary readers for this book are researchers working with different oscillatory processes, and both un- der-graduate and post-graduate students interested in a deep study of the general laws and applications of the theory of nonlinear oscillations. The instructors can find here new materials for lecturess and optinal courses
