Help with research in Chaos theory

  1. Jul 14, 2014 #1
    Hello I'm an undergraduate who is currently doing research in Chaos theroy. So far I've built a double pendulum and simulated it on my computer using mathematica. I'm going to use a tracker software to track the empirical motion of the pendulum and try to match it with the my theoretical simulation. I feel though I'm not going far enough. I want this research in Chaos theory to result in a paper published. Can anyone tell me what is going on in the cutting edge of Chaos theory research. Maybe I can incorporate some of these ideas into my current research. Any suggestions will be appreciated.

    Do you have an advisor? You should discuss this with her/him.

    I do have an advisor but he's an experimentalist while I want to go into theory. He has some ideas though he's skeptical if we can go far enough to get a published paper and I do not want to change advisors.

    You can have a look at the work of Peter Richter, for instance:
