Abstract: The method of multiple scales can be modified to remove remaining undesirable features in the perturbation solution by expanding available parameters in the equation(s) (Veronis [1]). Corresponding modifications to the Lindstedt-Poincaré method of strained parameters and the method of averaging are investigated and illustrated using the Duffing equation. It is found that a solution to the Duffing equation with no secular terms in either the amplitude or the frequency can be obtained simply by expanding the parameter in the equation without making the near-identity transformation of the independent variable associated with the Lindstedt-Poincaré technique.
