Abstract (EN)One of the most fundamental results in classical mechanics is that linear systems with n degrees of freedom have n fundamental modes of vibration, and that any motion of the systems can be obtained as a linear combination of these fundamental modes. This combination principle does not hold for nonlinear systems, but one suspects that a few periodic solutions will play a part akin to the fundamental modes.
