Abstract:

Nonlinear dynamics problems prove difficult to investigate analytically or numerically if probabilistic terms are involved in their equations. This paper develops a technique for handling problems of this type that is practical only if a high speed computer is available to perform the attendant computations. The method is general, but was applied to the Van der Pol equation.
