Up to now all the examples of polynomial differential systems for which non-algebraic limit cycles are known explicitly have degree at most 5. Here we show that already there are polynomial differential systems of degree at least exhibiting explicit non-algebraic limit cycles. It is well known that polynomial differential systems of degree 1 (i.e. linear differential systems) has no limit cycles. It remains the open question to determine if the polynomial differential systems of degree 2 can exhibit explicit non-algebraic limit cycles.
