Abstract

A mathematical model of duffing equation was modified to add a drag term. Bifurcation diagrams with fixed parameters show characteristic period-doubling cascading into chaos. Time evolution plots, state-space plots and Poincaré of chaotic behavior indicate that the system while periodic under small driving strengths transitions into chaos as driving strength increases.
