Systems with multiple competing frequencies show resonant responses when the ratio of the frequencies is a rational number. This resonance phenomenon, termed mode locking, has been observed in many experimental systems. Dissipative dynamical systems normally show low dimensional behavior; one can therefore extract the dynamics by modelling the system with lower dimensional maps. Mathematical formulation is given to construct a lower dimensional map for the beam-pendulum system. Such lower dimensional models display the essential dynamics observed in real systems.
