Accordingly we prove existence of infinitely many periodic orbits with large period accumulating at the origin. Such periodic orbits bifurcate from resonant finite dimensional invariant tori of the fourth order normal form of the system. Besides standard nonresonance and nondegeneracy assumptions, our main result is obtained assuming a regularizing property of the nonlinearity. We apply our main theorem to a semilinear beam equation and to a nonlinear Schr\\\\\\\"odinger equation with smoothing nonlinearity.1 aBambusi, Dario1 aBerti, Massimiliano uhttp://hdl.handle.net/1963/2159
