Limit cycle analysis of the verge and foliot clock escapement using impulsive differential equations and Poincare Maps.

The verge and foliot escapement mechanism of a mechanical clock is a classical example of a feedback regulator. In this aper we analyze the dynamics of this mechanism to ungrstand its o eration from a feedback perspective. Using impulsive cherential equations and PoincarC maps to model the dynamics...
