We study the control of transport properties in a deterministic inertia ratchet system via the extended delay feedback method. A chaotic current of a deterministic inertia ratchet system is controlled to a regular current by stabilizing unstable periodic orbits embedded in a chaotic attractor of the unperturbed system. By selecting an unstable periodic orbit, which has a desired transport property, and stabilizing it via the extended delay feedback method, we can control transport properties of… 
Directed transport of an inertial particle in a washboard potential induced by delayed feedback.
It is demonstrated that with applied feedback desymmetrization of coexisting attractors takes place leaving the ones supporting either positive or negative velocities as the only surviving ones, and found parameter ranges for which in the presence of thermal noise the directed transport is enhanced compared to the noiseless case.
Open Problems on Information and Feedback Controlled Systems
The state-of-the-art and the main open problems that include aspects of the redundancy of correlated operations of feedback control and the continuous operation of feedback controlled systems are presented.
Complex Synchronization and Chaos in Driven Overdamped Ratchets
The role of synchronization on the current of particles in periodically‐forced overdamped ratchets is studied. The main goal is to explain the mean velocity and diffusion on the basis of
Artificial Brownian motors: Controlling transport on the nanoscale
In systems possessing spatial or dynamical symmetry breaking, Brownian motion combined with unbiased external input signals, deterministic and random alike, can assist directed motion of particles at


Control of a Deterministic Inertia Ratchet System via Extended Delay Feedback
(Received 15 August 2006)We study the control of a transport property in a deterministic inertia ratchet system via ex-tended delay feedback. We stabilize a chaotic current of a ratchet system to a

The origin of the current reversal is identified as a bifurcation from a chaotic to a periodic regime, and trajectories revealing intermittent chaos and anomalous deterministic diffusion are observed.

It is shown that the main stability properties of the system controlled by time-delayed feedback can be simply derived from a leading Floquet exponent defining the system behavior under proportional feedback control.
Regular and chaotic transport in asymmetric periodic potentials: Inertia ratchets.
This work characterizes the motion by cumulants of the contracted, time-dependent solution of the Liouville equation, and can distinguish regular from chaotic transport.
Anticipated synchronization in coupled inertial ratchets with time-delayed feedback: a numerical study.
It is found that the slave ratchet can respond in exactly the same way as the master will respond in the future, thereby anticipating the nonlinear directed transport.
Control of chaos via an unstable delayed feedback controller.
A modified scheme based on an unstable delayed feedback controller for stabilizing unstable periodic orbits embedded in chaotic attractors and shows efficiency for an unstable fixed point of a simple dynamic model and an unstable periodic orbit of the Lorenz system.
Deterministic directed transport of inertial particles in a flashing ratchet potential.
It is shown that a critical threshold of the ratchet asymmetry is required for the system to achieve a net current and directed transport can be greatly enhanced when the coupling strength of particles is increased.
Directed chaotic transport in Hamiltonian ratchets.
It is shown that regular ratchet transport can be directed against an external potential gradient while chaotic ballistic transport is restricted to unbiased systems.
