**Pendulum without friction**

Limit cycle in phase space: no sensitivity to initial conditions

2
**Pendulum with friction**

Fixed point attractor in phase space: no sensitivity to initial conditions

3
**Pendulum with friction: basin of attraction**

Different starting positions end up in the same fixed point. Its like rolling a marble into a basin. No matter where you start from, it ends up in the drain.

4
**Pendulum with friction**

Adding a third dimension of potential energy: the basin of attraction as a gravitational well.

5
**Inverted Pendulum: ball on flexible rod flops to one side or the other**

Basin of attraction in phase space: two fixed points.

6
**Inverted Pendulum: ball on flexible rod**

Potential energy plot shows the two fixed points as the “landscape” of the basin of attraction.

7
**Driven Pendulum with friction**

Horizontal version: Chaotic behavior in time

8
**Driven Pendulum with friction**

Horizontal version: Chaotic attractor in phase space

Double Pendulum Very simple device, but its motion can be very complex (here an LED is attached in a time exposure photo) Simulation at

**Logistic Equation: a period-doubling route to chaos**

0<x<1 (think of x as percentage of total population, say 1 million rabbits) Population this year: xt Population next year: xt+1 Rate of population increase: R Positive Feedback Loop: xt+1= R*xt Negative Feedback Loop: 1-xt (if x gets big, 1-x gets small)

11
**Logistic Equation: a period-doubling route to chaos**

Positive Feedback Loop: xt+1= R*xt

12
Logistic Map Starting at xt = 0.2 and R= 2: “fixed point” or “point attractor.” All starting values are in this “basin of attraction” so they eventually end there.

13
Logistic Map Starting at xt = 0.2 and R= 3.1: limit cycle of “period two” (because it oscillates between two values).

14
**Logistic Map: cobweb diagram**

Starting at xt = 0.2 and R= 3.1: limit cycle of “period two” (because it oscillates between two values). In each iteration there are two steps. The first gives the parabola, . The second step we “reset” xt to xt+1 which is the straight line. We see a “fixed point Attractor. Animation:

15
Logistic Map Starting at xt = 0.2 and R = we double the period (“bifurcation”): a limit cycle of four values.

16
Logistic Map Increasing R continues to double the period. Starting at xt = 0.2 and R = 4 we see a chaotic attractor. The values will never repeat.

17
Bifurcation Map Where does x “settle to” for increasing R values?

18
Bifurcation Map The logistic map is a fractal: similar structure at different scales. Thus bifurcations happen with increasing frequency: the rate of increase is the Feigenbaum constant (4.7)

19
Water drop model Plotting the time interval between one drip and the next: The amount of water in a drip depends on the drip that came before it—this feedback can create complex dynamics. Tn+1 Tn Two frequency drip One-frequency drip The period-doubling route to chaos: eventually the dripping faucet produces a strange attractor:
