## Abstract

A dynamic system has a finite number of limit cycles. However, finding the upper bound of the number of limit cycles is an open problem for general non-linear dynamical systems. In this paper, we investigated a class of non-linear systems under perturbations. We proved that the upper bound of the number of zeros of the related elliptic integrals of the given system is 7n + 5 including multiple zeros, which also gives the upper bound of the number of limit cycles for the given system.

Impact and interest:

**Citation counts** are sourced monthly from **Scopus** and **Web of Science®** citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the **Google Scholar™** indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
