1 March 1994 Parametric entrainment of systems governed by ordinary differential equations
Author Affiliations +
For systems represented by ordinary differential equations of a general form, it is shown that time dependencies for the parameters may be determined to generate new behaviors. These new dynamics are mathematical solutions determined using a second set of equations. Under many circumstances the system's new driven behavior entrains to these solutions in a stable manner. The method is explored via numerical simulation of a Duffing-like oscillator system. The results of these computer studies are then applied to an experimental system. A model consisting of a system of ordinary differential equations is determined for the experiment. The parametric driving term is computed and then applied. The response of the system is compared to the response from a sinusoidal driving force of similar characteristics and the results discussed.
