We study the dynamics of a mechanical oscillator with linear and cubic forces – the Duffing oscillator — subject to a feedback mechanism that allows the system to sustain autonomous periodic motion with well-defined amplitude and frequency. First, we characterize the autonomous motion for both hardening and softening nonlinearities. Then, we analyze the oscillator’s synchronizability by an external periodic force. We find a regime where, unexpectedly, the frequency range where synchronized…

Internal Resonance in a Vibrating Beam: A Zoo of Nonlinear Resonance Peaks

A model for internal resonance in a vibrating elastic beam clamped at its two ends based on a representation of the resonant modes as two Duffing oscillators, coupled through cubic interactions is examined, illustrating the diversity of behavior that internal resonance brings about in the dynamical response of the system, depending on the detailed form of the coupling forces.

Basic concepts and physical-chemical phenomena, that have conceptual meaning for the formation of systemic clinical thinking and formalization of the knowledge of systemic structural-functional organization of the human’s organism

From the point of view of perception and generalization processes there are complex, logic and conceptual forms of thinking. Its conceptual form is the highest result of interaction between thinking



Synchronization properties of self-sustained mechanical oscillators.

Existence and stability of synchronized motion are assessed in terms of the mechanical properties of individual oscillators, namely, their natural frequencies and damping coefficients, and synchronization frequencies are determined.

Observation of locked phase dynamics and enhanced frequency stability in synchronized micromechanical oscillators.

Observations of internal synchronization in coupled silicon micromechanical oscillators associated with a reduction in the relative phase random walk that is modulated by the magnitude of the reactive coupling force between the oscillators are reported.

Determination of the critical coupling for oscillators in a ring.

We study a model of coupled oscillators with bidirectional first nearest neighbors coupling with periodic boundary conditions. We show that a stable phase-locked solution is decided by the

Synchronization - A Universal Concept in Nonlinear Sciences

This work discusseschronization of complex dynamics by external forces, which involves synchronization of self-sustained oscillators and their phase, and its applications in oscillatory media and complex systems.

Frequency stabilization in nonlinear micromechanical oscillators.

It is demonstrated that, by coupling two different vibrational modes through an internal resonance, it is possible to stabilize the oscillation frequency of nonlinear self-sustaining micromechanical resonators.

Multistable behavior above synchronization in a locally coupled Kuramoto model.

A system of nearest neighbors Kuramoto-like coupled oscillators placed in a ring is studied above the critical synchronization transition. We find a richness of solutions when the coupling increases,

Theory of amplifier-noise evasion in an oscillator employing a nonlinear resonator.

It is shown that when the resonator possesses a suitable nonlinearity, the phase diffusion due to amplifier noise can be suppressed, allowing one to achieve a long-term phase stability comparable to the ultimate noise limit.

Sync: The Emerging Science of Spontaneous Order

In "Sync" professor Steven Strogatz considers a range of applications - human sleep and circadian rhythms, menstrual synchrony, insect outbreaks, superconductors, Lasers, secret codes, heart arrhythmias and fads - connecting all through an exploration of the same mathematical theme: self-organization, or the spontaneous emergence of order out of chaos.

An experimental investigation into the dynamics of a string

We describe a detailed experimental investigation into the dynamics of a sinusoidally forced string. We find qualitative agreement with the predictions of the averaged equations of motion for a

Emergence Of Dynamical Order Synchronization Phenomena In Complex Systems

This paper downloads emergence of dynamical order synchronization phenomena in complex systems, which means that people will be facing with some infectious virus inside their laptop, instead of enjoying a good book with a cup of tea in the afternoon.
