Abstract: Quasi-periodic responses can appear in a wide variety of nonlinear dynamical systems. To the best of our knowledge, it has been a tough job for years to solve quasi-periodic solutions, even by numerical algorithms. Here in this paper, we will present effective and accurate algorithms for quasi-periodic solutions by improving Wilson-θ and Newmark-β methods, respectively. In both the two methods, routinely, the considered equations are rearranged in the form of incremental equilibrium equations with the coefficient matrixes being updated in each time step. In this study, the two methods are improved via a predictor-corrector algorithm without updating the coefficient matrixes, in which the predicted solution at one time point can be corrected to the true one at the next. Numerical examples show that, both the improved Wilson-θ and Newmark-β methods can provide much more accurate quasi-periodic solutions with a smaller amount of computational resources. With a simple way to adjust the convergence of the iterations, the improved methods can even solve some quasi-periodic systems effectively, for which the original methods cease to be valid.
