Localized chaoticity in two linearly coupled inverted double-well oscillators

  • AB Adeloye


Two linearly coupled inverted double-well oscillators for a fixed energy and varying coupling strength were studied. The dynamics yielded a chaotic system in which the Poincare surface was characterised by two non-mixing regions, one of regular motion and the other region that became chaotic as the coupling increased.
