Abstract

A formula is obtained for the action transferred between two weakly coupled harmonic oscillators, where the time-dependent frequency of one oscillator passes through resonance with the fixed frequency of the other. The analysis shows the similarity between the discrete system and the process of linear mode conversion in inhomogeneous continuous media.
