Abstract: We consider a nonlinear system on the plane, given by an oscillator with homoclinic orbits. The above system is subjected to a perturbation, composed of a deterministic part and a random (white noise) part. Assuming the existence of a finite, invariant measure to the perturbed system, we deal with the convergence of the measures to a limit measure, as the perturbation parameter tends to zero. The limit measure is constructed in terms of the action function of the unperturbed oscillator, and the strong local convergence of the associated densities is proved.
