Harmonically forced pendulum is one of the basic models of nonlinear dynamics which has numerous applications in different fields of physics and mechanics. There are two main directions in the study of this model. First of them can be denoted as application of general mathematical perturbation theory in which integrable conservative system is a generating model.
