The One-Dimensional Damped Forced Harmonic Oscillator Revisited
Flores-Hidalgo, G.; Barone, F. A.
European Journal of Physics, v32 n2 p377-379 Mar 2011
In this paper we give a general solution to the problem of the damped harmonic oscillator under the influence of an arbitrary time-dependent external force. We employ simple methods accessible for beginners and useful for undergraduate students and professors in an introductory course of mechanics.
