We introduce simple models of genetic regulatory networks and we proceed to the mathematical analysis of their dynamics. The models are discrete time dynamical systems generated by piecewise affine contracting mappings whose variables represent gene expression levels. These models reduce to boolean networks in one limiting case of a parameter, and their… (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)

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)

We prove the existence and we study the stability of the kink-like xed points in a simple Coupled Map Lattice for which the local dynamics has two stable xed points. The condition for the existence allows us to deene a critical value of the coupling parameter where a (multi) generalized saddle-node bifurcation occurs and destroys these solutions. An… (More)

We examine the problem of the dynamics of interfaces in a one-dimensional space-time discrete dynamical system. Two different regimes are studied: the non-propagating and the propagating one. In the first case, after proving the existence of such solutions, we show how they can be described using Taylor expansions. The second situation deals with the… (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)
