Hi, first to mention I´m an absolute beginner with Mathematica...
My problem is now, that I have to plot the Poincare Surface of Section for the Henon-Heiles System as an exercise in Nonlinear Physics/Chaos.
I´m absolutely new to numerics, so I started the Mathematica trial to get into it. Now I´m at this point
abc = {x''[t] + x[t] + 2*x[t]*y[t] == 0, y''[t] + y[t] + y[t]^2 + x[t]^2 == 0};
to define my differential equations
psect[{x0_, y0_, a0_, b0_}] :=
Reap[NDSolve[{abc, x[0] == x0, y[0] == y0, x '[0] == a0, y'[0] == b0,
WhenEvent[x[t] == 0, Sow[y[t]]]}, {}, {t, 0, 1000},
MaxSteps -> \[Infinity]]][[-1, 1]]
here is the critical point ... because if i want to apply the following
abcdata = Map[psect, {
{0, 0.9952906114885919, 1, 1}, {0, 2.1257099470901704, 1, 1},
{0, 4.939152797323216, 1, 1}, {0, 4.926744120488727, 1, 1},
{0, 1.7074633238173198, 1, 1}, {0, 4.170087631574883, 1, 1},
{0, 2.3736566160602277, 1, 1}, {0, 1.4987884558838156, 1, 1},
{0, 1.3745418575363608, 1, 1}, {0, 1.3039536044289253, 1, 1},
{0, 2.289597511313432, 1, 1}, {0, 4.306922133429981, 1, 1},
{0, 5.000045498132029, 1, 1}}];
ListPlot[abcdata, ImageSize -> Medium]
i alwas get the Problem that there are only 3 initial conditions, while 4 are needed... but this is something weird, since I can´t find what´s wrong in my system... maybe everything, maybe a small thing.
Those are the problems that occur:
NDSolve::ndnco: The number of constraints (3) (initial conditions) is not equal to the total differential order of the system plus the number of discrete variables (4)., Part::partw: Part 1 of {} does not exist., General::stop: Further output of NDSolve::ndnco will be suppressed during this calculation., General::stop: Further output of Part::partw will be suppressed during this calculation.
I´ve almost lost hope... since I´m not able to learn all that general stuff in few days I used http://reference.wolfram.com/language/example/PoincareSections.html as reference and tried to put it into my system... so far it didn´t work.
I would be really thankful if anyone has any kind of idea...
