Abstract : Stability constraints have been derived for two general forms of coupled systems of second order nonlinear differential equations. Examples of these systems have been investigated for oscillatory behavior, and general conditions have been derived to assure that their solutions never decay even though the systems have dissipative coupling. Further work is being undertaken on oscillatory behavior of such systems so as to find a result similar to (**) for higher order systems. The hypersurface computed to find an inner amplitude bound is the first step. Numerical results are not presented. (Author)
