Controlling cardiac chaos is often achieved by applying a large damaging electric shock-defibrillation. It removes all waves, without differentiating reentries and normal waves, anatomical and functional reentries. Anatomical reentries can be removed by anti-tachycardia pacing (ATP) as well. But ATP requires the knowledge of the position of the reentry, and… (More)

We study the dynamics of fronts in parametrically forced oscillating lattices. Using as a prototypical example the discrete Ginzburg-Landau equation, we show that much information about front bifurcations can be extracted by projecting onto a cylindrical phase space. Starting from a normal form that describes the nonequilibrium Ising-Bloch bifurcation in… (More)

Pinning of vortices by defects plays an important role in various physical (superconductivity, superfluidity, etc.) or biological (propagation in cardiac muscle) situations. Which defects act as pinning centers? We propose a way to study this general problem by using an advection field to quantify the attraction between an obstacle and a vortex. A full… (More)

Rotating waves in cardiac muscle may be pinned to a heterogeneity, as it happens in superconductors or in superfluids. We show that the physics of electric field distribution between cardiac cells permits one to deliver an electric pulse exactly to the core of a pinned wave, without knowing its position, and even to locations where a direct access is not… (More)

In the Kuramoto model, a uniform distribution of the natural frequencies leads to a first-order (i.e., discontinuous) phase transition from incoherence to synchronization, at the critical coupling parameter K(c). We obtain the asymptotic dependence of the order parameter above criticality: r-r(c)alpha(K - K(c))(2/3). For a finite population, we demonstrate… (More)

We propose a procedure to distinguish quasiperiodic from chaotic orbits in short-time series, which is based on the recurrence properties in phase space. The histogram of the return times in a recurrence plot is introduced to disclose the recurrence property consisting of only three peaks imposed by Slater's theorem. Noise effects on the statistics are… (More)

We investigate the effects of a time-delayed all-to-all coupling scheme in a large population of oscillators with natural frequencies following a bimodal distribution. The regions of parameter space corresponding to synchronized and incoherent solutions are obtained both numerically and analytically for particular frequency distributions. In particular, we… (More)

We study the robustness of self-sustained oscillatory activity in a globally coupled ensemble of excitable and oscillatory units. The critical balance to achieve collective self-sustained oscillations is analytically established. We also report a universal scaling function for the ensemble's mean frequency. Our results extend the framework of the "aging… (More)

An increase of the coupling strength in the system of two coupled Rössler oscillators leads from a nonsynchronized state through phase synchronization to the regime of lag synchronization. The role of unstable periodic orbits in these transitions is investigated. Changes in the structure of attracting sets are discussed. We demonstrate that the onset of… (More)
