Our work on "Exactly solvable chaos in an electromechanical oscillator" was published in issue 3 of Chaos (2013). [See also Xueping Long's 2013 thesis on the same topic.]

Rachel Fordyce's thesis project on a chaotic water wheel and the improvements on the setup made by Alison Saunders during the 2010 summer resulted in two articles:
L. Illing, A. M. Saunders, and D. Hahs, Chaos, vol. 22, 013127 (2012) and L. Illing, R. F. Fordyce, A. M. Saunders, and R. Ormond, Am. J. Phys., vol. 80 (3), 192 (2012).
