The model we consider consists in a double pendulum set, where the pivot points are free to shift along a horizontal line. Moreover, the two pendula are coupled by means of a spring whose extremities connect two points of each pendulum, at a fixed distance from the corresponding pivot. The mathematical model is first written encompassing a large class of setting for the device (different sizes, different physical properties, ...). In order to carry on the problem of synchronization via…

The Differential Equations of Gravity-free Double Pendulum: Lauricella Hypergeometric Solutions and Their Inversion

This paper solves in closed form the system of ODEs ruling the 2D motion of a gravity free double pendulum (GFDP), not subjected to any force. In such a way its movement is governed by the initial



Synchronization of two coupled pendula in absence of escapement

A model of two oscillating pendula placed on a mobile support is studied. Once an overall scheme of equations, under general assumptions, is formulated via the Lagrangian equations of motion, the


Two 1-DOF pendulums coupled with a weak spring are considered. This system is a coupled Controlled Hamiltonian Systems that has been studied widely in these days. The control objective is to make

On the Problem of Synchronization of Identical Dynamical Systems: The Huygens’s Clocks

In 1665, Christiaan Huygens reported the observation of the synchronization of two pendulum clocks hanged on the wall of his workshop. After synchronization, the clocks swung exactly in the same

An Extension of the Eneström-Kakeya Theorem and Its Sharpness

The classical Enestrom-Kakeya Theorem, for obtaining bounds for the moduli of the zeros of any polynomial with positive coefficients, is extended to the case of any complex polynomial having no zeros
