Grahic Jump Location
Schematic drawing illustrating the basic idea behind tracking function estimation. Trajectories of the reference system in phase space are shown in gray. The solid black line represents a measured trajectory of the perturbed system, passing through y(l) and the dashed gray line represents where a trajectory would have gone in the reference system, if starting from the same point y(l).
Grahic Jump Location
Schematic diagram of the experiment with the two-well electromechanical oscillator
Grahic Jump Location
Power spectra taken throughout the experiment (left). Passages through periodic windows occurring during the experimental run (right). See text for further discussion.
Grahic Jump Location
Experimental tracking results: (left) plot of unscaled tracking metric ē5 vs. the battery voltage; (right) scaled battery voltage vs. time. In both figures, black dots show the moving average of tracking metric over ten data records, and the gray background represents ±one standard deviation of the mean. In the right figure, the dark gray gives the outline of the actual (unaveraged) battery voltage, and the solid gray line is the corresponding local average in one data record.
Grahic Jump Location
Additional tracking results showing the effect of changing NR, the number of consecutive records used for the moving average ē5: (left) NR=20; (right) NR=40. Plot details are the same as in Fig. 4. As can be seen by comparison with Fig. 4, the different values of NR affect only the local fluctuations of the tracking, not the general trend.
Grahic Jump Location
The correlation dimension (dc) and largest short time Lyapunov exponent (λ1) vs. the battery voltage. See the discussion in text.
