The system was evaluated in a bifurcation diagram that held all parameters constant except the driving force amplitude, gamma, 3 values of interest were chosen, .4 when the system was not chaotic, .45 when it was almost nearly chaotic and .47 when it was in full chaos. Time evolution of position, state-space plots, Poincare sections and a bifurcation diagram were chosen as evidence of non choatic vs chaotic character.
