BIFURCATION BEHAVIOR OF A HAMILTONIAN SYSTEM WITH TWO DEGREES OF FREEDOM
Svetoslav Nikolov, Daniela Zaharieva
The investigation of the qualitative changes in the dynamics of a system is object of bifurcation theory. In this paper we analyze the bifurcation behavior of a Hamiltonian system with two degrees of freedom describing the rider and the swing (pumped from the seated position) as a compound pendulum. Our analytical calculations predict that a Hamiltonian Hopf bifurcation (1:-1 resonance) takes place.
