Dear Murray: Is this along the lines of what you're looking for?
f[omega_, a_, b_] :=
NDSolve[{x'[t] == y[t], y'[t] == -Sin[x[t]] - 0.1*y[t] + Cos[omega
t], x[0] == a, y[0] == b}, {x, y}, {t, 0, 10}]
sol = f[6, 1, 1];
newx[t_] = First[x[t] /. sol[[1]]];
Print[NIntegrate[(newx[t])^2, {t, 0, 10}]];
g[omega_] := Block[{sol}, sol = f[omega, 1, 1]; newx[t_] = x[t] /. sol;
First[newx[3]]]
Plot[g[omega], {omega, 0.1, 3}]
This solves the usual pendulum equation with omega and initial conditions
as parameters, computes the L^2 norm of x for a specific set of
parameters, and plots the x value at t=3 as omega varies.
