Instabilities in 1D spatially extended systems are studied with the aid of both temporal and spatial Lyapunov exponents. A suitable representation of the spectra allows a compact description of all the possible disturbances in tangent space. The analysis is carried out for chaotic and periodic spatiotemporal patterns. Singularities of the spectra and localization properties of the associated Lyapunov vectors are discussed. 
Chronotopic Lyapunov analysis: II. Toward a unified approach
From the analyticity properties of the equation governing infinitesimal perturbations, it is conjectured that all types of Lyapunov exponents introduced in spatially extended 1D systems can beExpand
An Open-System Approach for the Characterization of Spatio-Temporal Chaos
The structure of the invariant measure of space-time chaos is investigated by adopting an “open-system” point of view and a “volume”-propagation velocity is introduced, i.e., the velocity with which ensembles of localized perturbations tend to fill volumes in the neighbouring regions. Expand
Entropy potential and Lyapunov exponents.
It is shown that the knowledge of the entropy potential allows determining also Lyapunov spectra in general reference frames where the time-like and space-like axes point along generic directions in the space-time plane. Expand
Characterization of the spatial complex behavior and transition to chaos in flow systems
Abstract We introduce a “spatial” Lyapunov exponent to characterize the complex behavior of non-chaotic but convectively unstable flow sytems. This complexity is of spatial type and is due toExpand

Lyapunov Spectra of Coupled Chaotic Maps
All the above numerical observations are explained, based on heuristic physical understanding of the competition of intensity of chaoticity, and strength of coupling, and on an analogy of the discrete coupled maps with continuous extended systems. Expand
Scaling Region in Desynchronous Coupled Chaotic Maps

Convective Lyapunov spectra
We generalize the concept of the convective (or velocity-dependent) Lyapunov exponent from the maximum rate Λ(v) to an entire spectrum Λ(v, n). Our results are derived by following two distinctExpand

Periodic orbits in coupled Henon maps: Lyapunov and multifractal analysis.
A powerful algorithm is implemented in a 1-d lattice of Henon maps to extract orbits which are periodic both in space and time and the arrangement of periodic orbits allows the elucidate the spatially chaotic structure of the invariant measure. Expand
Spatio-Temporal Chaos and Localization
Nonlinearities in the flow equations of spatially extended systems can give rise to high-dimensional deterministic chaos. This plays the role of an intrinsic source of disorder in tangent space, andExpand
