Numerical Analysis - Construction of a Poincare surface of section

  1. Jun 6, 2006 #1
    (I am not sure whether I'm posting in the right forum. I apologize if I do)

    Does anyone have an alrorithm or a code (in any language) that constructs a Poincare surface of section?

    I want to do so for a Hamiltonian model: A mass under the influense of the Henon-Heiles potential. It has to include a symplectic algorithm for the integration of the equations of motion ,but that is no problem. The general idea of the P. surface, is what I'm having problem with.

    So even a hint with what it's need to be done to construct it would be fine.
