The main aim of this paper is to construct Bendixson-Dulac and Dulac-Cherkas functions
to study the maximum number of limit cycles for several families of planar dynamical
system. We also apply the results to Lienard and biochemistry reaction systems

Key Words: Limit cycles Bendixson function Dulac-Cherkas function planar vector field
