Transient Spatio-temporal Chaos in a Reaction-diiusion Model Typeset Using Revt E X


We theoretically investigate a two-component reaction-diiusion system that exhibits transient spatio-temporal chaos before reaching a periodic attractor. The transient times grow exponentially with the size of the system. The chaotic behaviour is characterized by the calculation of local Lyapunov exponents and the propagation velocity of a localized… (More)
