ABSTRACT

Evolutionary motions in a bouncing ball system consisting of a ball having a free fall in the Earth’s gravitational field have been studied systematically. Because of nonlinear form of the equations of motion, evolutions show chaos for certain set of parameters for certain initial conditions. Bifurcation diagram has been drawn to study regular and chaotic behavior. Numerical calculations have been performed to calculate Lyapunov exponents, topological entropies and correlation dimension as measures of complexity. Numerical results are shown through interesting graphics.
