- TITLE: Sensorless stabilization of bounce juggling
- AUTHORS: R. Ronsse, Ph. Lefèvre, R. Sepulchre
- ABSTRACT: The paper studies the properties
of a sinusoidally vibrating wedge billiard as a model for 2-D bounce juggling.
It is shown that some periodic orbits that are unstable in the elastic fixed
wedge become exponentially stable in the non-elastic vibrating wedge. These
orbits are linked with some classical juggling patterns, providing an interesting
benchmark for the study of the frequency-locking properties in human rhythmic
tasks. Experimental results on sensorless stabilization of juggling patterns
are also described.
