We use symmetry considerations to investigate control of a class of resonant three-wave interactions relevant to pattern formation in weakly damped, parametrically forced systems near onset. We classify and tabulate the most important damped, resonant modes and determine how the corresponding resonant triad interactions depend on the forcing parameters. The(More)
We show how pattern formation in Faraday waves may be manipulated by varying the harmonic content of the periodic forcing function. Our approach relies on the crucial influence of resonant triad interactions coupling pairs of critical standing wave modes with damped, spatiotemporally resonant modes. Under the assumption of weak damping and forcing, we(More)
Time-delays are common in many physical and biological systems and they give rise to complex dynamic phenomena. The elementary processes involved in template biopolymerization, such as mRNA and protein synthesis, introduce significant time delays. However, there is not currently a systematic mapping between the individual mechanistic parameters and the time(More)
We investigate the relationship between the linear surface wave instabilities of a shallow viscous fluid layer and the shape of the periodic, parametric-forcing function (describing the vertical acceleration of the fluid container) that excites them. We find numerically that the envelope of the resonance tongues can only develop multiple minima when the(More)
Designing genetic networks with desired functionalities requires an accurate mathematical framework that accounts for the essential mechanistic details of the system. Here, we formulate a time-delay model of protein translation and mRNA degradation by systematically reducing a detailed mechanistic model that explicitly accounts for the ribosomal dynamics(More)
Previous work has shown that Benjamin–Feir unstable traveling waves of the complex Ginzburg–Landau equation (CGLE) in two spatial dimensions cannot be stabilized using a particular time-delayed feedback control mechanism known as 'time-delay autosynchronization'. In this paper, we show that the addition of similar spatial feedback terms can be used to(More)
Parametrically-excited surface waves, forced by a repeating sequence of delta-function impulses, are considered within the framework of the Zhang-Viñals model [W. Zhang and J. Viñals, J. Fluid Mech. 336, 301 (1997)]. With impulsive forcing, the linear stability analysis can be carried out exactly and leads to an implicit equation for the neutral stability(More)
Motivated by the rich variety of complex periodic and quasi-periodic patterns found in systems such as two-frequency forced Faraday waves, we study the interaction of two spatially periodic modes that are nearly resonant. Within the framework of two coupled one-dimensional Ginzburg-Landau equations we investigate analytically the stability of the periodic(More)
