Abstract

We prove the existence of a periodic solution to a nonlinear impact oscillator, whose restoring force has an asymptotically linear behavior. To this aim, after regularizing the problem, we use phase-plane analysis, and apply the Poincaré-Bohl fixed point Theorem to the associated Poincaré map, so to find a periodic solution of the regularized problem. Passing to the limit, we eventually find the "bouncing solution'' we are looking for.
