Requires a Wolfram Notebook System

Interact on desktop, mobile and cloud with the free Wolfram Player or other Wolfram Language products.

The Duffing oscillator moves in a double well potential, sometimes characterized as nonlinear elasticity, with sinusoidal external forcing. It is described by the equation . We consider the parameters , , , , , and . Solutions to the oscillator equation can exhibit extreme nonlinear dynamics, including limit cycles, strange attractors, and chaotic behavior. The system is, as expected, highly sensitive to the initial conditions.
