In this article, we extend our earlier results and establish new ones on the existence and non-existence of periodic solutions for n-vector non-dissipative, nonlinear ordinary differential equations. Our results involve both the homogeneous and non-homogeneous cases. The setting for non-existence results of periodic solutions involves a suitably defined scalar function endowed with appropriate properties relative to each equation. But the framework for proving existence results is via the standard Leray-Schauder fixed-point technique whose central theme is the verification of a-priori bounded periodic solutions for a parameter-dependent system of equations.
