  • The order parameter equation for the relative phase of correlated hand movements, derived in a previous paper by Haken et al. (1985), is extended to a time-dependent stochastic differential equation. Its solutions are determined close to stationary points and for the transition region. Remarkably good agreement between this theory and recent experiments done by Kelso and Scholz (1985) is found, and new predictions are offered.
