Analysis of Impulsive Parametric Excitation Problems by Point Mapping

  • C. S. Hsu
Part of the Applied Mathematical Sciences book series (AMS, volume 64)


In this chapter we consider a class of mechanical systems for which the governing point mappings can be obtained exactly in analytical form. Thus, we can have confidence that the results obtained from point mapping analyses truly reflect the behavior of the original systems, no matter how complex or unexpected they may be.
