In the weak 16th Hilbert problem, the Poincaré-Pontryagin-Melnikov function, $M_1(h)$, is used for obtaining isolated periodic orbits bifurcating from centers up to a first-order analysis. This problem becomes more difficult when a family of centers is considered. In this work we provide a compact expression for the first-order Taylor series of the function $M_1(h,a)$ with respect to $a$, being a the multi-parameter in the unperturbed center family. More concretely, when the center family has an explicit first integral or inverse integrating factor depending on $a$. We use this new bifurcation mechanism to increase the number of limit cycles appearing up to a first-order analysis without the difficulties that higher-order studies present. We show its effectiveness by applying it to some classical examples.

Joint work with Jackson Itikawa (UNIR, Brazil) and Joan Torregrosa (UAB, Spain).
