This is a brief introduction to the ideas and
concepts of nonlinear mechanics, and a
discussion of various quantitative methods for
analyzing such problems We will focus on the
driven damped pendulum (DDP)

We expect something interesting to happen as g ?

Small Oscillations of the Driven, Damped Pendulum
g ltlt 1 will give small oscillations
• The motion approaches a unique periodic attractor
• independent of initial conditions
• The motion is sinusoidal with the same frequency
as the drive

Pendulum
g lt 1 and the nonlinearity becomes significant
Try
This solution gives from the f3 term
Since there is no cos(3wt) on the RHS, it must be
that all develop a cos(3wt) time dependence.
Hence we expect
We expect to see a third harmonic as the driving
force grows

After careful analysis of the long-term motion,
it is found to be periodic with the same period
as the driving force

After a wilder initial transient, the motion
becomes periodic, but period 2!

The long-term motion is TWICE the period of the

The period-2 behavior still has a strong period-1
component Increase the driving force slightly and
we have a very strong period-3 component

Multiple Attractors
The linear oscillator has a single attractor for
a given set of initial conditions

The spacing between consecutive bifurcation
points grows smaller at a steady rate
? as n ? 8
d 4.6692016 is called the Feigenbaum number
The limiting value as n ? 8 is gc 1.0829.
Beyond that is chaos!
22
Period doubling continues in a sequence of
ever-closer values of g
Such period-doubling cascades are seen in many
nonlinear systems Their form is essentially the
same in all systems it is universal

Chaos!

f(t)
t
The pendulum is trying to oscillate at the
driving frequency, but the motion remains erratic
for all time
25
Chaos
• Nonperiodic
• Sensitivity to initial conditions

26
Sensitivity of the Motion to Initial Conditions
Start the motion of two identical pendulums with
slightly different initial conditions Does their
motion converge to the same attractor? Does it
diverge quickly?

27
Convergence of Trajectories in Linear Motion
Take the logarithm of Df(t) to magnify small
differences.
Plotting log10Df(t) vs. t should be a
straight line of slope b, plus some wiggles from
the lncos(w1t d1) term
Note that log10x log10e lnx
28
Convergence of Trajectories in Linear Motion
Log10Df(t)
t
g 0.1
The trajectories converge quickly for the small
driving force ( linear) case
This shows that the linear oscillator is
essentially insensitive to its initial conditions!
29
Convergence of Trajectories in Period-2 Motion
Log10Df(t)
t
g 1.07
The trajectories converge more slowly, but still
converge
30
Divergence of Trajectories in Chaotic Motion
g 1.105
Log10Df(t)
t
If the motion remains bounded, as it does in this
case, then Df can never exceed 2p. Hence this
plot will saturate
The trajectories diverge, even when very close
initially Df(16) p, so there is essentially
complete loss of correlation between the pendulums
Extreme Sensitivity to Initial Conditions Practica
lly impossible to predict the motion

Bifurcation Diagram
Used to visualize the behavior as a function of
driving amplitude g
• Choose a value of g
• Solve for f(t), and plot a periodic sampling of
the function
• t0 chosen at a time after the attractor behavior
has been achieved
• Move on to the next value of g

This plot is still quite messy. Theres got to
be a better way to visualize the motion

The Poincaré Section
Similar to the bifurcation diagram, look at a
sub-set of the data
• Solve for f(t), and construct the state-space
orbit
• Plot a periodic sampling of the orbit
• with t0 chosen after the attractor behavior has
been achieved
• 1.5

Best emission is seen when the crystal is
partially heated above Tc! Results are extremely
sensitive to details (number of layers, edge
properties, type of material, width of mesa,
etc.) Many competing states do not show
emission Emission enhanced near cavity mode
resonances ? requires non-uniform current
injection, assisted by inhom. heating, p-phase
kinks, crystal defects

Chaos in Newtonian Billiards
Imagine a point-particle trapped in a 2D
enclosure and making elastic collisions with the
walls
Describe the successive wall-collisions with a
mapping function
• The Chaos arises due to the shape of the
boundaries enclosing the system.
