Limit Cycle Analysis of the Verge and Foliot Clock Escapement using Impulsive Differential Equations and Poincar´e 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 erspective. Using impulsive cherential equations and PoincarC maps to model the dynamics o...
