Description: We present an adequate analytical approach to the description of nonlinear vibration with strong energy exchange between weakly coupled oscillators and oscillatory chains. The fundamental notion of the limiting phase trajectory (LPT) corresponding to complete energy exchange is introduced. At first we propose a simple analytical description of vibrations of nonlinear oscillators. We show that two dynamical transitions occur in the system. First of them corresponds to the bifurcation of anti-phase vibrations of oscillators. And the second one is caused by coincidence of LPT with separatrix dividing two stable stationary states and leads to qualitative change in both phase and temporal behavior of the LPT. Next problem under consideration relates to intensive intermodal exchange in the periodic nonlinear systems with finite (n>2) number of degrees of freedom. We consider two limiting cases. If the number of particles is not large enough, the energy exchange between nonlinear normal modes in two-dimensional integral manifolds is considered.
