Abstract

We consider the dynamics of two pendulum clocks (with pendulums of the same length but different masses) suspended on the same beam. We give evidence that besides the complete and phase synchronizations, the considered system can exhibit long period synchronization and chaotic behavior. We argue that the observed phenomena are robust.
