We show experimental and numerical results of phase synchronization between the chaotic Chua circuit and a small sinusoidal perturbation. Experimental real-time phase synchronized states can be detected with oscilloscope visualization of the attractor, using specific sampling rates. Arnold tongues demonstrate robust phase synchronized states for… (More)
We have studied the effects of perturbations on the cat's cerebral cortex. According to the literature, this cortex structure can be described by a clustered network. This way, we construct a clustered network with the same number of areas as in the cat matrix, where each area is described as a sub-network with a small-world property. We focus on the… (More)
The creation of an outer layer of chaotic magnetic field lines in a tokamak is useful to control plasma-wall interactions. Chaotic field lines (in the Lagrangian sense) in this region eventually hit the tokamak wall and are considered lost. Due to the underlying dynamical structure of this chaotic region, namely a chaotic saddle formed by intersections of… (More)
The modal and nonmodal linear properties of the Hasegawa-Wakatani system are examined. This linear model for plasma drift waves is nonnormal in the sense of not having a complete set of orthogonal eigenvec-tors. A consequence of nonnormality is that finite-time nonmodal growth rates can be larger than modal growth rates. In this system, the nonmodal… (More)
We have studied effects of perturbations on the cat cerebral cortex. According to the literature, this cortex structure can be described by a clustered network. This way, we construct a clustered network with the same number of areas as in the cat matrix, where each area is described as a sub-network with small-world property. We focus on the suppression of… (More)
We investigated the transition to wave turbulence in a spatially extended three-wave interacting model, where a spatially homogeneous state undergoing chaotic dynamics undergoes spatial mode excitation. The transition to this weakly turbulent state can be regarded as the loss of synchronization of chaos of mode oscillators describing the spatial dynamics.
