Huygens' original system of pendulum clocks and its generalized (and modern) version.
For a small coupling strength (m 3 large) and initial conditions close to in-phase, system (19) , (20) synchronizes in-phase as depicted in Figures 3(a) and 3(b) . For the same coupling strength and initial conditions close to anti-phase, the oscillators synchronize in anti-phase, as shown in Figures 3(c) and 3(d) , where black line: x 1 and grey line: x 2.
Photo of the experimental setup.
In this experiment, the oscillators practically synchronize in-phase. The oscillators have been released from initial conditions close to in-phase and the mass of the coupling bar has been increased to . InFigures 9(a) and 9(b) , black line: x 1 and grey line: x 2. In Figure 9(d) , transient behaviour has been omitted.
For initial conditions far from in-phase, the oscillators synchronize in anti-phase. Black line: x 1 and grey line: x 2.
