**Pendulum without friction**Limit cycle in phase space: no sensitivity to initial conditions**Pendulum with friction**Fixed point attractor in phase space: no sensitivity to initial conditions**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.**Pendulum with friction**Adding a third dimension of potential energy: the basin of attraction as a gravitational well.**Inverted Pendulum: ball on flexible rod flops to one side or**the other Basin of attraction in phase space: two fixed points.**Inverted Pendulum: ball on flexible rod**Potential energy plot shows the two fixed points as the “landscape” of the basin of attraction.**Driven Pendulum with friction**Horizontal version: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0LSPxDB8OPM Chaotic behavior in time**Driven Pendulum with friction**Horizontal version: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0LSPxDB8OPM Chaotic attractor in phase space**Very simple device, but its motion can be very complex (here**an LED is attached in a time exposure photo) Double Pendulum Simulation at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QXf95_EKS6E**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)**Logistic Equation: a period-doubling route to chaos**Positive Feedback Loop: xt+1= R*xt**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.**Logistic Map**Starting at xt= 0.2 and R= 3.1: limit cycle of “period two” (because it oscillates between two values).**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: http://lagrange.physics.drexel.edu/flash/logistic/**Logistic Map**Starting at xt= 0.2 and R = 3.49 we double the period (“bifurcation”): a limit cycle of four values.**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.**Bifurcation Map**Where does x “settle to” for increasing R values?**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)**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:
