A Toolbox for Nonlinear Dynamics
Using the main problem of artificial satellite theory as an illustration, we review several developments which have had a significant impact on research in nonlinear dynamics. On the mathematical front, we point to the ...
The Phase Space Portrait of an Integrable Dynamical System
For an integrable dynamical system with one degree of freedom, "painting" the integral over the phase space proves to be very effective for uncovering the global flow down to minute details. Applied to the main problem ...
Paint by number: Uncovering phase flows of an integrable dynamical system
(American Institute of Physics, 1991-09)
Given an integrable dynamical system with one degree of freedom, "painting" the integral over phase space proves to be a powerful technique for uncovering both global and local behavior. This graphical technique avoids ...
