This course will cover dynamical systems theory, and the application of dynamical systems techniques to mathematical, physical, biological, and technological systems described by ordinary differential equations or maps. The primary focus will be on dissipative systems, so that the course is complementary to the Advanced Dynamics sequence (ME 201) which primarily focus on conservative systems.

Answers to FAQ: In problem 3, you can treat the slider as a point-mass.

Damped frequency is defined only for underdamped systems, since for overdamped systems there are no oscillations in the output.**Homework 2**

Jan 8:**Problem 2 update**: Unstretched rope length L = 0.4 m

Jan 12:**Problem 2 update**: You can assume that the rope stays horizontal during the motion.

Jan 13:**Problem 2 update**: Use t_final = 3 in your simulation.

Jan 13:**Problem 3 update**: Typo, instead M_eff it should read M=200 kg, i.e., the total mass of the cantilever is specified. The oscillating mass is then 200/3 kg.
