The Formulations of Classical Mechanics with Foucault’s Pendulum
It is stressed that adopting the formalism of action-angle variables is not necessary to understand the dynamics of Foucault’s pendulum, which is simply taken as well-known and simple dynamical system used to exemplify and illustrate modern concepts that are crucial in order to understand more complicated dynamical systems.
One pendulum to run them all
The analytical solution for the three-dimensional linear pendulum in a rotating frame of reference is obtained, including Coriolis and centrifugal accelerations, and expressed in terms of initial
