But language kindred to my thought,
Till everything She said, I sung,
In notes unforced, in words unsought.
"The Door Of Humility" by Alfred Austin

To dream He wrote the little song
I made to Him with love's unforced design!

(Any dawn now), awaken
In church, not on the coffin boards
Of a back pew, or on furnace-room rags,
But on the steps of the altar

The number of attracting trajectories depends on many factors including the dynamics of the unforced system, the nature of the forcing F (t ), and the amplitude γ of the forcing.
Is the astronomical forcing a reliable and unique pacemaker for Climate?
Influence of the parameters γ and TU LC The two particular types of synchronization illustrated in Fig. 5(c) and 5(e) have been obtained for a fixed value of the amplitude γ of the external forcing and of the natural period of the unforced paleoclimatic system TU LC .
Is the astronomical forcing a reliable and unique pacemaker for Climate?
To understand this Figure, recall that the unforced oscillator (i.e., γ = 0) has a stable fixed point for |β | > 1 and a stable limit cycle for |β | < 1.
Is the astronomical forcing a reliable and unique pacemaker for Climate?
For this, keep in mind (i) that the period of the unforced oscillation varies by almost a factor of two within the range 0 < |β | < 1, and (ii) that synchronization requires some relation between the period of the unforced oscillations and the forcing period.
Is the astronomical forcing a reliable and unique pacemaker for Climate?
The right-hand side of this equation depends on a parameter µ and the unforced dynamics ˙x = fµ (x, 0) are assumed to exhibit a bifurcation when µ equals a critical value µ0 .
