Transverse mode instability in fiber optic cables causes power amplification to exhibit chaotic behavior. Due to this, numerical modeling of fiber optic power amplification is extremely computationally expensive. In this paper I work through modeling similar behavior in a simpler system. I also visualize the three-dimensional phase portrait of the system in order to better understand the behavior and hopefully relate it to more well-understood problems.
