Analytical results for coupled-map lattices with long-range interactions.


We obtain exact analytical results for lattices of maps with couplings that decay with distance as r(-alpha). We analyze the effect of the coupling range on the system dynamics through the Lyapunov spectrum. For lattices whose elements are piecewise linear maps, we get an algebraic expression for the Lyapunov spectrum. When the local dynamics is given by a… (More)
