Re: Poincare sections

Not entirely sure what you're asking for, but here's a simple routine 
that plots a Poincare section for a pair of ODEs with vector field (f,g):

PoincareSection[{f_,g_}, {t_,t0_,tmax_,dt_}, {x_,x0_}, {y_,y0_}] :=
   Module[{xsoln, ysoln},
    {xsoln, ysoln} = {x, y} /. First@
    NDSolve[{x'[t] == (f /. {x -> x[t], y -> y[t]}),
             y'[t] ==(g /. {x -> x[t], y -> y[t]}),
             x[0]==x0, y[0]==y0}, {x, y},
             {t, t0, tmax}, MaxSteps -> Infinity];
    ListPlot[Table[{xsoln[t], ysoln[t]}, {t, t0, tmax, dt}]]]

And this is the classic example with Duffing's equation:

PoincareSection[{y, x - x^3 - 0.2y + 0.3Cos[t]},{t,0,3000,2Pi},
    {x, -1}, {y, 1}]
