The power functions appearing in the function PX*(α1,α2,...,αn)(s) are generally multivalued functions. In this paper, in order to calculate the value of the function PX*(α1,α2,...,αn)(s) in a particular point, the principal values [36] of its involved power functions at such a point are considered. By considering this point, function PX*(α1,α2,...,αn)(s) will be a single-valued function.

It is worth mentioning that Eqs. (14-1) and (14-2) are similar to conditions (5-1) and (5-2) in Ref. [50]. The aforementioned conditions have been presented in Ref. [50] as the necessary and sufficient conditions which should be satisfied by LTI 2-inner dimension fractional-order systems to generate sinusoidal oscillations with frequency ω, whereas in our problem (14-1) and (14-2) are not necessary conditions for the existence of oscillations in a nonlinear system (12). These equations are only used to specify the boundary of the possible oscillatory region of the fractional-order Van der Pol system (12). As a consequence, ω appearing in (14-1) and (14-2) does not have any relation to the frequency of oscillations in the fractional-order Van der Pol system (12).

Finding the oscillatory region in the order space is one of the most challenging problems in nonlinear fractional-order systems. This paper proposes a method to find the possible oscillatory region in the order space for a nonlinear fractional-order system. The effectiveness of the proposed method in finding the oscillatory region and special order sets placed in its boundary is confirmed by presenting some examples.
