Small amplitude limit cycles and the distribution of zeros of families of analytic functions. (English) Zbl 1010.34021

The paper is concerned with the number of limit cycles of a planar polynomial system in a neighborhood of the origin. An estimation is given on their number. The main tool is a distributional inequality for the number of zeros of some families of univariate holomorphic functions depending analytically on a parameter.
