Acceleration of Bouncing Balls in External Fields
Abstract: We introduce two models, the Fermi-Ulam model in an external field and a one dimensional system of bouncing balls in an
external field above a periodically oscillating plate. For
both models we investigate the possibility of unbounded motion.
In a special case the two models are equivalent.
