Hello, thanks for taking the time to help sort out my query.
I am in the middle of investigating non linear pendulum.
The equations of motion are
w'[t]=-(1/q)w[t]-Sin[Î¸[t]] + g Cos[wD t]
Theta is the displacement, w the frequency, wD the driving frequency and g the drive amplitude.
Basically so far a I have plotted w vs theta to show chaos, however now I want to create a bifurcation diagram,
like this http://www.physics.drexel.edu/~gbyrne/Bif_g.jpg
This is done as far as I know is plotting w at the start of every drive cycle against g.
But I cant figure out how to do this,
maybe so sort of Do loop with the NDSolve of the differential equation.
Any help would be much appreciated
