Description

We use Mathematica to illustrate the applications of Jacobi elliptic functions to obtain the approximate solution of a two degree of freedom, undamped, homogeneous dynamical system having small cubic nonlinearities. We also illustrate in this article how Mathematica may help to obtain the closed-form solution of Lamé’s equation.
