I have a working code of animation of a double pendulum. I have theta1 and theta2. I wanted to trace the path followed by double pendulum on the torus. meaning as the pendulums moves the path should be traced simultaneously on torous. And I wanted to put both these annimation side by side .

• ListAnimate I used but seems it is not working. as I tried before , for each instant of time I tried to save the trajectory in a table form later used ListAnimate , but failed. – acoustics Oct 28 '18 at 9:20

This could be a strategy to achieve your goals.

background = ParametricPlot3D[ torus[θ1, θ2], {θ1, 0, 2 Pi}, {θ2, 0, 2 Pi}];
curve[t_] = torus[θ1[t], θ2[t]] /. sol;

(* creating the curve plots for all discete times: all computations are done here and not in Manipulate so that computations have to be done only once, speeding up the animation process  *)
curves = Table[
ParametricPlot3D[curve[s t], {s, 0, 1}, PlotStyle -> Thick] /.
Line[x_] :> Tube[x, 0.01],
{t, 0, 10, 0.05}];

Manipulate[
GraphicsRow[{
Show[{
background,
curves[[i]]
}],
frames[[i]]
},
ImageSize -> Large
],
{i, 1, Length[curves], 1},
TrackedSymbols :> i
]

The idea is as follow: Given a curve

$$\gamma \colon [0,T] \to \mathbb{R}^3,$$

you obtain a homotopy of this curve to a point by

$$H \colon[0,T] \times [0,1] \to \mathbb{R}^3, \qquad H(t,s) = \gamma(s t).$$

You can now use one of the parameters $$s$$ or $$t$$ as animation parameter and the other one as plotting parameter. If you use t as "time" in the animation and if you plot the curve $$s \mapsto H(t,s)$$ for $$s \in [0,1]$$ and fixed t, you obtain exactly the curve that $$\gamma$$ traveled from time $$0$$ to time $$t$$. That's it basically.

The replacement rule

Line[x_] :> Tube[x, 0.01]

just turns the rather thin curves produced by ParametricPlot3D into a tubular curves for better visibility.

• Sir can you briefly explain it, please. what exactly you have done. It sever the purpose and I take this as an answer. I wanted to understand what is happening. – acoustics Oct 28 '18 at 10:19
