###### §22.19(ii) Classical Dynamics: The Quartic Oscillator

… ►For an initial displacement with $$, bounded oscillations take place near one of the two points of stable equilibrium $x=\pm \sqrt{1/\beta}$. Such oscillations, of period $2K\left(k\right)/\sqrt{\eta}$, with modulus $k=1/\sqrt{2-{\eta}^{-1}}$ are given by: …##### 2: Sidebar 9.SB2: Interference Patterns in Caustics
