Existence and stability of periodic solutions for second-order semilinear differential equations with a singular nonlinearity. (English) Zbl 1190.34050

Summary: It is proved that a periodically forced second-order equation with a singular nonlinearity in the origin with linear growth in infinity possesses a \(T\)-periodic stable solution for high values of the mean value of the forcing term. The method of proof combines a rescaling argument with the analysis of the first twist coefficient of the Birkhoff normal form for the Poincaré map.
