Section 10.5 The van der Pol Equation
10.25. Consider the van der Pol Equation 10.97. Suppose α is a random variable. How do the statistics
of α affect the trajectories shown in Figure 10.14 and the time traces in Figure 10.15.
Solution: Since the curves in both sets of figures depend on the value of α, uncertainty in that value results
in uncertainties in the curves. One expects that a given variance in α results in a similar variance in the
location of the curves. One can interpret the given curves in Figure 10.11 and the time traces in Figure 10.12
as mean values for a given mean value of α.
