Lattice dynamical models of adaptive spatio-temporal phenomena

  • Sudeshna Sinha
Spatio-Temporal Chaos, Synchronization And Control


We describe the rich spectrum of spatio-temporal phenomena emerging from a class of models incorporating adaptive dynamics on a lattice of nonlinear (typically chaotic) elements. The investigation is based on extensive numerical simulations which reveal many novel dynamical phases, ranging from spatio-temporal fixed points and cycles of all orders, to parameter regimes displaying marked scaling properties (as manifest in distinct 1/f spectral characteristics and power law distributions of spatial quantities).
