This volume is devoted to the qualitative investigation of two-dimensional polynomial dynamical systems and is aimed at solving Hilbert's Sixteenth Problem on the maximum number and relative position of limit cycles. The author presents a global bifurcation theory of such systems and suggests a new global approach to the study of limit cycle bifurcations. The obtained results can be applied to higher-dimensional dynamical systems and can be used for the global qualitative analysis of various mathematical models in mechanics, radioelectronics, in ecology and medicine. Audience: The book would be of interest to specialists in the field of qualitative theory of differential equations and…
