On the dynamics of a kicked harmonic oscillator
- 8 Downloads
In this paper the dynamics of a kicked harmonic oscillator is studied. This is done by constructing a stroboscopic map for the kicked harmonic oscillator by following the time t-flow of the differential equation and taking phase portrait for some integrals multiple of the period of the kicked. The resulting map is a two-dimensional area-preserving (or symplectic) map. We provide a proof for the continuity of the position, and also a local stability analysis for the trivial equilibrium. Complete analysis for a general kick function for the 1:1, and for the 1:2 resonances are presented. For the 1:4 resonance, we describe the dynamics numerically for some specific kick functions.
