".. suppose instead of fixed object (a building), we had a moving object - say, a pendulum. We can represent the horizontal and vertical motion of the pendulum in a two-dimensional graph."

"..phase space represents the state of an object in a multi-dimensional plane. The motion of the simple pendulum could be shown on a graph where the x-axis is the angle of displacement from the vertical and the y-axis is the angular velocity."

"Phase space turns dull statistical data into a telling picture, abstracting all the essential information from the moving parts and providing us with an easy to grasp overview of the system's behaviour over time."

"In phase space, the complete state of knowledge about a dynamical system at a single instant collapses to a point. That point then is the dynamical system at that instant. At the next instant, the system will have changed, and so the point moves."
