Localization of periodic orbits of autonomous systems based on high-order extremum conditions

This paper gives localization and nonexistence conditions of periodic orbits in some subsets of the state space. Mainly, our approach is based on high-order extremum conditions, on high-order tangency conditions of a nonsingular solution of a polynomial system with an algebraic surface, and on some ideas related to algebraically-dependent polynomials. Examples of the localization analysis of periodic orbits are presented including the Blasius equations, the generalized mass action (GMA) system, and the mathematical model of the chemical reaction with autocatalytic step.
