Mechanical Model of Coupled Oscillators

George Gilmore

I am currently building a physical model of 20 coupled oscillators, imposing a variety of initial conditions, from which we will measure and collect behavioral information via video capture.

My current project is a subset of the research conducted by Bryan Eisenhower, where he is investigating the Effect of Symmetry on Spatiotemporal Resonances in Coupled Systems. I am currently building a physical model of 20 coupled oscillators, imposing a variety of initial conditions, from which we will measure and collect behavioral information via video capture. This data will be compared to our developed theoretical models which suggest that the reduced time of transition between different molecular conformations is due to features of the dynamics of molecules resulting from their structural features. As for the future ? time will tell.
