To do this I would like to have an inverse of my function y[t] (so I would have t[y]).  I realize this function would be multivalued (that's what I want to find the period).  I am not having success using Mathematica's InverseFunction[] or Reduce[] commands.  Does anyone have any experience or suggestions with this sort of thing (either finding Inverse Interpolating Functions or another method for period and pulse width)?  Thank you.

So, when you will find out the period, compute sufficient number of
points with the help of this interpolation function, e.g., as a
Table[], change coordinates, and interpolate again... Of course, if
you know exact formula, worth using it...
