- TITLE: Open-loop stabilization of 2D impact juggling
- AUTHORS: R. Ronsse, Ph. Lefevre, R. Sepulchre.
- ABSTRACT: The paper studies the properties of a sinusoidally
vibrating wedge billiard as a model for 2D impact 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.
