On various averaging methods for a nonlinear oscillator with slow time-dependent potential and a nonconservative perturbation
2010, vol. 15, no. 2-3, pp.  285-299
Abstract
The main aim of the paper is to compare various averaging methods for constructing asymptotic solutions of the Cauchy problem for the one-dimensional anharmonic oscillator with potential $V(x, \tau)$ depending on the slow time $\tau=\varepsilon t$ and with a small nonconservative term $\varepsilon g(\dot x, x, \tau)$, $\varepsilon \ll 1$. This problem was discussed in numerous papers, and in some sense the present paper looks like a "methodological" one. Nevertheless, it seems that we present the definitive result in a form useful for many nonlinear problems as well. Namely, it is well known that the leading term of the asymptotic solution can be represented in the form $X(\frac{S(\tau)+\varepsilon \phi(\tau))}{\varepsilon}, I(\tau), \tau)$, where the phase $S$, the "slow" parameter $I$, and the so-called phase shift $\phi$ are found from the system of "averaged" equations. The pragmatic result is that one can take into account the phase shift $\phi$ by considering it as a part of $S$ and by simultaneously changing the initial data for the equation for $I$ in an appropriate way.

Unstable closed trajectories, librations and splitting of the lowest eigenvalues in quantum double well problem
2006, vol. 11, no. 2, pp.  167-180
Abstract
We discuss the structure of asymptotic splitting formula for the lowest eigenvalues of multidimensional quantum double well problem. We show that the change of instanton by closed unstable trajectory of appropriate Hamiltonian system gives more natural and simpler preexponential factor (amplitude) in splitting formula. The projection of this trajectories onto configuration space are well know librations in classical mechanics.
Keywords: quantum double well problem, librations, splitting value, tunneling effect, normal forms, complex phase space
