Mathematica: Graphing The behavior of a double pendulum

  1. Mar 29, 2013 #1

    I have a few newb questions. How can I graph the behavior of a double pendulum in Mathematica to make strange attractors like in the Lorenz equations?

    Work out what you want to plot and use the plot() function?
    Have you used mathematica before?

    Note: Wolfram has extensive online notes on how to do things with Mathematica.
    i.e. http://demonstrations.wolfram.com/LorenzAttractor/
