As a result some of its stars, and those of Gaia-Enceladus were set into chaotic motion, and eventually formed the halo of the present Milky Way.
The first known asteroid to travel here from another solar system isn't coasting through space as much as it is tumbling across the cosmos, possibly after a violent crash many years ago set it into chaotic motion.
Their topics include friction laws in modeling dynamical systems, the smooth approximation of discontinuous stick-slip solutions, impacts in the chaotic motion of a particle on a non-flat billiard, almost periodic solutions for jumping discontinuous systems, and controlling stochastically excited systems with an approximate discontinuity.

It can be observed that periodic motion and chaotic motion appear in the vibration of the blade.
It is almost the case for lower interdot barrier [kappa] = 3, where irregular chaotic motion was easily observed and shown in Figure 2.
[26], in which state feedback is used to convert chaotic motion into stable motion.
The boundaries are marked by yellow in Figure 6 and they conform with the analysis above; for example, the periodic motion (purple) as [l.sub.1] = 3 and p = 0 in Figure 6(a) corresponds to the red curves in Figure 5(a) and the chaotic motion (red) as [xi] = 1.68 and [l.sub.1] = 0 observed in Figure 6(a) matches the phase diagram shown in Figure 3(b), which means that the phenomenon of multistability indeed coexists in the proposed four-wing memristive chaotic system.
5, we can see that with the bifurcation parameter Z increasing, the motion system first is chaotic motion. Under different gear damping ratio [zeta] = 0.001, 0.02, 0.06 and 0.1, chaotic attractor is not the same shape, as shown in Fig.
The study of chaotic motion in nonlinear systems has been a popular area of research during the last few decades.
