We usually only consider the first order term for an oscillation, are there any papers on extending that model and including third and fifth order terms (since only odd power terms would cause a periodic motion)?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

The ODE would look like x''=-αx-βx^3+O(x^5)
