Abstract
Recently, several complex network approaches to time series analysis have been developed
and applied to study a wide range of model systems as well as real-world data, e.g.,
geophysical or financial time series. Among these techniques, recurrence-based concepts
and prominently ε-recurrence networks, most faithfully represent the
geometrical fine structure of the attractors underlying chaotic (and less interestingly
non-chaotic) time series. In this paper we demonstrate that the well… Expand

This paper systematically investigates the recurrence-based phase space network of order k that has previously been used to specify different types of dynamics in terms of the motif ranking from a different perspective and finds that the network size scales with different scale exponents and the degree distribution follows a quasi-symmetric bell shape around the value of 2k.

It is shown that the recently developed approach of recurrence network analysis provides potentially useful geometric characteristics distinguishing between regular and chaotic orbits, and it is found that chaotic orbits in an intermittent laminar phase (commonly referred to as sticky orbits) have a distinct geometric structure possibly differing in a subtle way from those of regular orbits.

- Commun. Nonlinear Sci. Numer. Simul.

The addition of white and colored noise to a chaotic time series changes the topology and the structure of the underlying attractor reconstructed from the time series and it is shown that the recurrence network measures are capable of identifying the nature of noise contamination in a time series.
