# A new mechanism of the chaos suppression

• The standard Melnikov method for analyzing the onset of chaos in the vicinity of a separatrix is used to explore the possibility of suppression of chaos of a certain class of dynamical systems. For a given dynamical system we apply an external perturbation, which we call the stabilizing perturbation, with the goal that after its action the chaos present in the system is suppressed. We apply this method to the nonlinear pendulum as a paradigm, and obtain some analytical expressions for the corresponding external perturbations that eliminate chaotic behavior. Numerical simulations in the pendulum show a complete agreement with the analytical results.
