We consider the dynamics of a periodic chain of N coupled overdamped particles under the influence of noise. Each particle is subjected to a bistable local potential, to a linear coupling with its nearest neighbours, and to an independent source of white noise. We show that as the coupling strength increases, the number of equilibrium points of the system… (More)

We consider the dynamics of a periodic chain of N coupled overdamped particles under the influence of noise, in the limit of large N. Each particle is subjected to a bistable local potential, to a linear coupling with its nearest neighbours, and to an independent source of white noise. For strong coupling (of the order N 2), the system synchronises, in the… (More)

A sufficient condition for global synchronization in coupled map lattices (CML) with translation invariant coupling and arbitrary individual map is proved. As in [Jost & Joy, 2001] where CML with reflection invariant couplings are considered, the condition only involves the linearized dynamics in the diagonal, namely for all points in the diagonal, the… (More)

We propose a procedure to generate dynamical networks with bursty, possibly repetitive and correlated temporal behaviors. Regarding any weighted directed graph as being composed of the accumulation of paths between its nodes, our construction uses random walks of variable length to produce time-extended structures with adjustable features. The procedure is… (More)

Motivated by experimental and theoretical work on autonomous oscillations in yeast, we analyze ordinary differential equations models of large populations of cells with cell-cycle dependent feedback. We assume a particular type of feedback that we call responsive/signaling (RS), but do not specify a functional form of the feedback. We study the dynamics and… (More)

We investigate the dynamics of unidirectional semi-infinite chains of type-I oscillators that are periodically forced at their root node, as an archetype of wave generation in neural networks. In previous studies, numerical simulations based on uniform forcing have revealed that trajectories approach a traveling wave in the far-downstream, large time limit.… (More)

We consider the dynamics of a piecewise affine system of degrade-and-fire oscillators with global repressive interaction, inspired by experiments on synchronization in colonies of bacteria-embedded genetic circuits. Due to global coupling, if any two oscillators happen to be in the same state at some time, they remain in sync at all subsequent times; thus… (More)

Strongly nonlinear degrade-and-fire (DF) oscillations may emerge in genetic circuits having a delayed negative feedback loop as their core element. Here we study the synchronization of DF oscillators coupled through a common repressor field. For weak coupling, initially distinct oscillators remain desynchronized. For stronger coupling, oscillators can be… (More)

In this technical note we calculate the dynamics of a linear feedback model of progression in the cell cycle in the case that the cells are organized into k = 3 clusters. We examine the dynamics in detail for a specific subset of parameters with non-empty interior. There is an interior fixed point of the Poincaré map defined by the system. This fixed point… (More)

We study the complexity of stable waves in unidirectional bistable coupled map lattices as a test tube to spatial chaos of traveling patterns in open flows. Numerical calculations reveal that, grouping patterns into sets according to their velocity, at most one set of waves has positive topological entropy for fixed parameters. By using symbolic dynamics… (More)
