2 Outline Motivation and History Characteristics of Chaos The SHO (R.O.M.P.) The Pasco Setup The Lorenzian Waterwheel Feedback, Mapping, and Feigenbaum Conclusions

3 Motivation Chaos theory offers ordered models for seemingly disorderly systems, such as: Weather patterns Turbulent Flow Population dynamics Stock Market Behavior Traffic Flow

4 Pre-Lorenz History The qualitative idea of small changes sometimes having large effects has been present since ancient times Henry Poincaré recognizes this chaos in a three-body problem of celestial mechanics in 1890 Poincaré conjectures that small changes could commonly result in large differences in meteorology Modern version of Three Body Problem

5 What is it all about? A dissipative (non-conservative) system couples somehow to the environment or to an other system, because it loses energy The coupling is described by some parameters (e.g. the friction constant for the damped oscillator) The whole system can be described by its phase-flux (in the phase-space) which depends on the coupling parameters The question is now: are there any critical parameters for which the phase-flux changes considerably? We study now the long term behaviour of various systems among differing initial conditions

6 Sensitivity to Initial Conditions First noted by Edward Lorenz, 1961 Changing initial value by very small amount produces drastically different results The Strange Attractor of the turbulent flow equations. Each color represents varying ICs by 10 -5 in the x coordinate.

7 Non-Linearity Most physical relationships are not linear and aperiodic Usually these equations are approximated to be linear –Ohm’s Law, Newton’s Law of Gravitation, Friction Nonlinear diffraction patterns of alkali metal vapors.

8 The Damped & Driven SHO This motion is determined by the nonlinear equation x = oscillating variable (θ) r = damping coefficient F 0 = driving force strength ω = driving angular frequency t = dimensionless time Motion is periodic for some values of F 0, but chaotic for others Driven here with F 0 Damped here with r

9 Random Oscillating Magnetic Pendulum (R.O.M.P.) –Non-linear equation of motion Where b, C are amplitudes of damping and the driving force, respecitively Demonstration of Chaos

12 Lorenzian Water Wheel Sketch and description Clockwise and counterclockwise rotation possible Constant water influx Holes in bottom of cups empty at steady rate As certain cups fill, others empty

13 Lorenz attractor Attractor: A subset of the phase-space, which can not be left under the dynamic of the system. In 1963 the meteorogolist Edward Lorenz formulated s set of equations, which were an idealization of a hydrodynamic system in order to make a long term weather forecast He derived his equations from the Navier-Stokes equations, the basic equation to describe the motion of fluid substances The result were the three following coupled differential equations, and the solution of these is called the Lorenz attractor:

14 Lorenzian waterwheel Lorenz attractor and the waterwheel Fortunately the theoretical description of the Lorenzian Waterwheel leads to the Lorenz attractor (maybe because both systems are hydrodynamic) The equations of the Lorenz attractor can be solved numerically, the solution shows that the behaviour is very sensitive to initial conditions initial points differ only by 10 -5 in the x-coordinate, a = 28, b = 10, c=8/3

15 The PASCO Pendulum Weight attached to rotating disc Springs attached to either side of disc in pulley fashion One spring is driven by sinusoidal force Sensors take angular position, angular velocity and driving frequency data

16 PASCO Chaos Setup Driven, double-spring oscillator Necessary two-minima potential Variable: –Driving Amplitude –Driving Frequency –Magnetic Damping –Spring Tension The magnetic damping measurement The measurement of the amplitude

17 Mapping the Potential I.Let the weight rotate all the way around once, without driving force II.Take angular position vs. angular velocity data for the run III.Potential energy is defined by the equation Two “wells” represent equilibrium points. In the lexicon of chaos theory, these are “strange attractors”.

18 Mapping the Potential We notice that the potential curve is highly dependent on the position of the driving arm (Left and Right refer to directions when facing the apparatus) Right Well Left Well

25 How it works Using Kirchoff’s Law

26 Mapping You call x n+1 =f(x n ) mapping With f(α,x n ) you can form a difference equation where x is in [0,1] and α is a model-dependent parameter A famous example is the logistic equation: The function f(α, x n ) generates a set of x n, this set is said to be a map

27 Concepts of Chaos Theory Logistic Map Chaos and Stability We end up at the same point, no matter where we start

28 Feigenbaum‘s number Pitchfork Bifurcation and Chaos Alexander BrunnerChaos and Stability = 4 to solve the iteration graphically easier and to get a better overview, we draw the 45 0 line in the plot x n+1 = x n α = 3.1 α = 4

29 Bifurcation Diagram Δα is the range in which the program varies α Initial x is equal to x 0,the value with which the iteration starts Signifies how often the program should execute the logistic map and tells it how many points it should calculate for one α

32 Concepts of Chaos Theory Feigenbaum‘s Number Facts The limit δ is a universal property when the function f (α,x) has a quadratic maximum It is also true for two-dimensional maps The result has been confirmed for several cases Feigenbaum's constant can be used to predict when chaos will arise in such systems before it ever occurs.

34 ‹ Lyapunov Exponents

35 Application to the Logistic Map As we found out, a > 0 means chaos and a < 0 indicates nonchaotic behaviour Alexander BrunnerChaos and Stability a a < 0

36 Conclusions R.O.M.P. –Simplest way to demonstrate chaotic behavior Pasco Chaos Generator –Exhibits chaos in regions shown by phase plot –Increased driving amplitude expands chaotic frequency range –Increased damping Requires larger driving amplitude for chaos Shifts chaotic region to lower frequency Logistical Mapping –We can characterize a system by determining Lyapunov Exponents, which allow the mapping of chaotic and non-chaotic regions Future study –Examine hysteresis in detail –Refine phase plot by taking more data points
