I Please share your chaotic systems...

  1. Apr 5, 2017 #1

    I am an undergrad student taking a course on dynamical systems. Our final assignment is to find and study a dynamic system (not necesarily mechanic, but chaotic, natually).

    I was wondering if there is experenced people in this community that could help me find an interesting system or helping me by suggesting where to look or read.

    During the course, we used mainly the book of Greiner, and the last thing we studied was the staggering of Hyperion.

    I will happily share it with you when I finish it.

    Thank you in advance!

    Why isn't a simple double pendulum the solution to it? Do you have special requirements or what have been your thoughts so far?

    The ones that come to mind that you might build and study are

    Compound pendulums
    Water dripping from a faucet

    You might try building a torsional version of a compound pendulum although I don't know if that would exhibit chaotic behavior or not.

    Or a compound compound pendulum i.e. N pendulum segments connected together.

    There's also Saturns and Jupiters moons.

    I found this very useful, even though there are many blank slides, thank you!

    I know about double pendulums and stuff, but, I want something more attractive, something not very common.
