Renormalization group second-order approximation for singularly perturbed nonlinear ordinary differential equations. (English) Zbl 1404.34071

In this paper, using the renormalization group method, the authors derived an \(O(\varepsilon^2)\) approximation for the singularly perturbed Cauchy problem with an \(m-\)dimensional slow-variable \(\mathbf{u}_{\varepsilon}\) and a scalar fast-variable \(v_{\varepsilon}:\) \[ \frac{d\mathbf{u}_{\varepsilon}}{dt}=\mathbf{f}(\mathbf{u}_{\varepsilon},v_{\varepsilon}),\;t>0,\;\mathbf{u}_{\varepsilon}(0)=\mathbf{u}^0, \]
\[ \varepsilon\frac{dv_{\varepsilon}}{dt}=-av_{\varepsilon}+\Phi(\mathbf{u}_{\varepsilon},v_{\varepsilon}),\;t>0,\;v_{\varepsilon}(0)=v^0, \] where \(\mathbf{f}\) and \(\Phi\) are defined on \(\mathbb{R}^{m+1},\) \(m\geq 1\), take values, respectively, in \(\mathbb{R}^m\) and \(\mathbb{R}^1,\) and are \(C^2\) functions with bounded derivatives.
As a result, a Tikhonov-type quasi-stationary approximation of order \(\varepsilon^2\) on infinite time interval involving the variables of slow equation, the steady state behavior of the fast equation, and an initial layer term is obtained.
