A typical design problem for which the fixed-points method was originally developed is that of minimizing the maximum amplitude magnification factor of a primary system by using a dynamic vibration absorber. This is an example of usual cases for which their exact solutions are not obtained by the well-known heuristic approach. In this paper, more natural formulation of this problem is studied, and algebraic closed-form exact solutions to both the optimum tuning ratio and the optimum damping coefficient for this classic problem are derived under assumption of undamped primary system. It is also proven that the minimum amplitude magnification factor, resonance and anti-resonance frequencies are entirely algebraic.
