### What creates the chaotic motion on a double pendulum?

As we know, The double pendulum has a chaotic motion. But, why is this? I mean, the mass of the two pendulums are the same and they have the same length. But, what makes its motion random? I'm just ...

### Calculating Lyapunov exponents from a multi-dimensional experimental time series

Wolf's paper Determining Lyapunov Exponents from a Time Series states that: Experimental data typically consist of discrete measurements of a single observable. The well-known technique of phase ...

### Reference for the Landau-Lifshitz system

I'm interested in understanding the dynamics of the discrete Landau-Lifshitz system. It's solutions to equations like $$\frac{\partial X_n}{\partial t} = X_n\times (X_{n-1}+X_{n+1})$$ where the $X_n$ ...

### About Poincare section for the double pendulum

I am reading Prof. Louis N. Hand's Analytical Mechanics. In the chapter about chaos, it introduces the concepts of Poincare section based on the example of double pendulum. Also, it plot the section ...

### Stability theory [closed]

I'm studying stability theory recently and met a lot of phrases like linear stability and nonlinear instability. After searching on Google, I became more confused. Thus I wonder if there is any ...

### What are the *necessary* conditions to deterministic chaos?

What are the necessary conditions (not saying sufficient conditions) in mathematical terms that a deterministic dynamic system can transit to deterministic chaos? We collected yet: A positive ...
