Two periodic fields acting on a bistable oscillator are assumed to have different timescales, which allows the exclusion of one of these fields via the separation of timescales. The second field is taken into account by harmonic linearization, which finally leads to a linear equation. Dynamic stabilization of the unstable point and a vibrational resonance follow from simple calculations.
