Time Delay Induced Oscillation: An Example on a Class of n Coupled Van Der Pol Oscillators Model with Delays


In this paper, a class of n coupled van der Pol oscillator model with delays is considered. By employing an analysis approach, some sufficient conditions to guarantee the existence of stability and oscillations for themodel are obtained. Examples are provided to demonstrate the results.
