Chaos* Whats in a name? Shakespeare, Romeo and Juliet Chaos A rough, unordered mass of things Ovid, Metamorphoses The answer is nothing and everything. Nothing because A rose by any other name would smell as sweet. And yet, without a name Shakespeare would not have been able to write about that rose or distinguish it from other flowers that smell less pleasant. So also with chaos. *Ditto, W.L.; Spano, M. L. Lindner, J. F.: Physica D, 1995, 86, 198.
Chaos The dynamical phenomenon we call chaos has always existed, but until its naming we had no way to distinguishing it from other aspects of nature such as randomness, noise and order. From this identification then came the recognition that chaos is pervasive in our word. Orbiting planets, weather patterns, mechanical systems (pendula), electronic circuits, laser emission, chemical reactions, human heart, brain, etc. all have been shown to exhibit chaos. Of these diverse systems, we have learned to control all of those that are on the smaller scale. Systems on a more universal scale (weather and planets) remain beyond our control. chaos Math Stochastic behaviour occurring in a deterministic system. Royal Society, London,1986

Michele Henon, astronomer, Nice Observatory, France. During the 1960's, he studied the dynamics of stars moving within galaxies. His work was in the spirit of Poincares approach to the classisical three-body problem: What important geometric structures govern their behaviour? The main property of these systems is their unpredictable, chaotic dynamics that are difficult to analyze and visualize. During the 1970's he discovered a very simple iterated mapping that shows a chaotic attractor, now called Henon's attractor, which allowed him to make a direct connection between deterministic chaos and fractals.deterministic chaosfractals Henon map
- Dissipative system - the contraction of volume in the state space The a The asymptotic motion will occur on sets that have zero volumes A set showing stability against small random perturbations: attractor - Chaotic attractor - locally exponential expansion of nearby points on the attractor Henon map
Two fundamental characteristics of chaotic systems that makes them unpredictable: Sensitivity dependence on the initial conditions This causes the systems having the same values of control parameters but slightly differing in the initial conditions to diverge exponentially (on the. average) during their evolution in time. Ergodicity A large set of identical systems which only differ in their initial conditions will be distributed after a sufficient long time on the attractor exactly the same way as the series of iterations of one single system (for almost every initial condition of this system). Henon map
The idea of controlling chaos All stable processes, we shall predict. All unstable processes, we shall control. John von Neumann, circa Freeman Dyson: Infinite in All Directions, Chapter Engineers Dreams, Harper: N.Y., 1988: A chaotic motion is generally neither predictable nor controllable. It is unpredictable because a small disturbance will produce exponentially growing perturbation of the motion. It is uncontrollable because small disturbances lead only to other chaotic motions and not to any stable and predictable alternative. Von Neumanns mistake was to imagine that every unstable motion could be nudged into a stable motion by small pushes and pulls applied at the right places. So it happened.
The idea of controlling chaos The idea of controlling chaos Henon map - Bifurcation diagram x
The linearized equation of motion of the system around the fixed point z F : For chaos control we apply a small parameter perturbation p n p o if and when the system approaches the fixed point. ABC of Chaos Control x y
During chaos control – for simplicity – we apply parameter perturbation that is linearly proportional to the systems distance from the fixed point, where C T is the control vector. From equations (1) and (2) we get the linearized equation of motion around the fixed point when chaos control is attempted: Shinbrot, T.; Grebogi, C.; Ott, E.; Yorke, J. A.: Nature, 1993, 363, 411.
Chaos control is successful if the new system state z n+1 (p o +δp n ) lies on the stable manifold of the fixed point z F (p o ) of the unperturbed system.
The just described strategy for chaos control implies the followings: For a successful chaos control, therefore, one has to know: the dynamics of the system around the fixed point the systems distance from the fixed point the right value of control vector C T the eigenvalue of the fixed point in the stable direction
Numerical example Henon map The linearized equation of motion around the fixed point z F when p n p o parameter perturbation is applied: !
Numerical example Henon map The eigenvalues of the fixed point of the unperturbed system are calculated by solving the following equation: resulting in Lets find the control vector C T such that
Numerical example Henon map The control vector can be calculated by solving for the new eigenvalues, and by applying the rules of the control strategy. Suppose:
Numerical example Henon map which gives Note that C contains parameters characteristics of the systems dynamics only.
Numerical example Henon map which gives
Numerical example Henon map According to our control equation the parameter perturbation for successful chaos control should be the following:
Numerical example Henon map
The linearized equation of motion of the system around the fixed point z F : Can we do better? Can we determine C experimentally? Answer: OGY theory* *Ott, E.; Grebogi, C.; Yorke, J. A.: Phys. Rev. Letters, 1990, 64, 1196.
The effect of parameter perturbation: the map, thus the fixed point is shifted but we assume the same linear dynamics
To achieve chaos control we demand that the next iterate falls near the stable direction. This yields the following condition (see figure). =1 =0 which is the OGY formula Ott, E.; Grebogi, C.; Yorke, J. A.: Phys. Rev. Letters., 1990, 64, 1196.
Constant K can be calculated from experimental data: u from the slope of the map about the fixed point at p o g form the displacement of the fixed point with respect to a change in p f u T from the eigenvectors in both stable and unstable directions calculated from the linearized map about the fixed point.
Limits of the OGY method: When the fixed point is such that f u and g are nearly orthogonal to each other, the control constant increases to infinity. Such fixed points are uncontrollable. The method works only for hyperbolic fixed points with a stable eigenvector. Determination of f u requires measurement of two (three) system variables, and also a good numerical approximation to the systems dynamics around the fixed point. However, collecting data along the stable manifold may be experimentally inaccessible. In real systems there is often noise present preventing the determination of the systems state and of the control constant with the required accuracy. Surprisingly, a simplification of the OGY formula provided the right algorithm for successfully controlling chaos in chemical systems.
Simplification of the OGY formula If the stable eigenvalue is very small ( s 0), the 2D map changes to a 1D map, which leads to a much simpler control formula: It also means that instead of targeting the stable manifold, we now directly target the fixed point itself. This is the so called SPF (simple proportional feedback) algorithm derived by Peng et al. This method has been used most effectively for controlling chaos in chemical systems.

The scientist does not study nature because it is useful; he studies it because he delights in it, and he delights in it because it is beautiful. If nature were not beautiful, it would not be worth knowing, and if nature were not worth knowing, life would not be worth living. Henri Poincaré ( )
