1 1 Nonlinear Differential Equations Nonlinear Differential Equations and The Beauty of Chaos 2 Examples of nonlinear equations ) ( ) ( 2 t kx dt t x d m = Simple harmonic oscillator (linear ODE) More complicated motion (nonlinear ODE) )) ( 1 )( ( ) ( 2 t x t kx dt t x d m α = Other examples: weather patters, the turbulent motion of fluids Most natural phenomena are essentially nonlinear. 3 What is special about nonlinear ODE? Ö For solving nonlinear ODE we can use the same methods we use for solving linear differential equations Ö What is the difference? Ö Solutions of nonlinear ODE may be simple, complicated, or chaotic Ö Nonlinear ODE is a tool to study nonlinear dynamic: chaos, fractals, solitons, attractors A simple pendulum Model: 3 forces • gravitational force • frictional force is proportional to velocity • periodic external force ) cos( ,. ), sin( 2 2 t F dt d mgL dt d I ext f g ext f g ω τ θ β = = = + + = 5 Equations 2 2 2 0 2 0 2 2 , , ) cos( ) sin( mL F f mL L g I mgL t f dt d dt d = = = = + = Computer simulation : there are very many web sites with Java animation for the with Java animation for the simple pendulum 6 Case 1: A very simple pendulum ) sin( 2 0 2 2 = dt d code
