Chaotic period-doubling and OGY control for the forced Duffing equation. (English) Zbl 1253.34048

The authors study the Duffing equation modified by an additional piecewise constant term \(\nu(t,t_0,\mu)\), where \(t_0\) is the initial time and \(\mu\) is a real parameter. The term \(\nu(t,t_0,\mu)\) takes two values, and the sequence of switching times is determined as a solution of the logistic equation with coefficient \(\mu\). Note that the dynamics of the composite system is of hybrid type. The authors consider also the \(n\)-dimensional analogue of such a system.
They prove that these systems exhibit a chaotic behavior through a period-doubling cascade. They also use the so-called OGY method to stabilize a periodic orbit of the system, by constructing a sequence of perturbed values of the parameter around the critical value.
Numerical examples and simulations are given.
