An asymptotic solution slowly crossing the separatrix near a saddle-centre bifurcation point. (English) Zbl 1026.34062

The authors construct an asymptotic solution to the primary resonance equation \[ i\varepsilon U'+(|U|^2-t)U=1,\quad 0<\varepsilon\ll 1. \] The constructed solution has a special behaviour. This solution varies slowly when \(t>t_{*}\) and oscillates fast when \(t<t_{*}.\) The constant \(t_{*}\) defines the value of \(t\) when a saddle-centre bifurcation takes place. The asymptotic solution in a thin layer close to \(t_{*}\) is studied in detail by the matching method.
