Chaos Theory James A. Yorke: “In this paper we analyze a situation in which the sequence…is non-periodic and might be called chaotic” “Period Three Implies Chaos”, Amer. Math. Soc., 82 (1975) 985-992 Chaos theory is the study of apparently random behavior of deterministic systems. Where do we find Chaos? In Physics, Engineering, and Biology : Plasma discharges, Electronic circuits, Lasers, Fluid flows, Granular media, Mechanical tools, Neurons, Heart Muscle, Oscillations of Lakes, Weather models
Ed Lorenz found : The solution is called a strange attractor. -It oscillates irregularly, never exactly repeating. -It is bounded.
O.E. Rössler (1976) simplified the Lorenz system and obtained an attractor with a single spiral:
Aperiodic: A chaotic signal looks like a burst of irregular pulses
Sensitive dependence on initial conditions: Two initially nearby trajectories (green and red) separate exponentially fast in time.
Lyapunov Exponents Largest Lyapunov Exponent: For a 3-dim system we have 3 exponents: Chaos: λ1 >0 λ2 =0, where | λ3| > | λ1| => λ1 + λ2 + λ3 <0 λ3 <0 Periodic Torus : λ1 = 0 λ2 = 0 λ3 < 0 Periodic Cycle : λ1 = 0 λ2 < 0 λ3 < 0 Chaos Characterization
Lyapunov Dimension If k is the largest integer for which then we define Fractal Dimension For regular geometrical shapes D 0 is an integer. For 3-dim Chaotic Attractors: 2 < D 0 < 3

Nonlinear and Chaotic Plasma Discharges Nonlinear spatial structures (striations) and stability analysis in RF Ar plasmas: R. A. Goldstein et al, Phys. Fluids 22 (1979), 231 M. A. Huerta et al, Phys. Rev. A 26 (1982), 539 J. A. Walkenstein et al., Phys. Lett. A261 (1999), 183 Chaotic oscillations of the current, light flux, and bifurcation route to chaos in glow discharges in Ar, He and Ne, and thermoionic discharges in Ar: P.Y. Cheung et al., Phys. Rev. Lett.59 (1987), 551 T. Braun et al., Phys. Rev. Lett. 59 (1987), 613 T. Mausbach et al., Phys. Plasmas 6 (1999), 3817
Models for a chaotic plasma: Metastables are important in obtaining self sustained oscillations in the positive column of a dc discharge: V. O. Papanyan et al., Int. J. Bifurc. Chaos 4 (1994), 1495 Where n, m are the electron and metastable concentrations, n and m are the lifetimes; P is the rate of metastable production Z is the effective ionization rate where m 0, n 0 are the equilibrium values N i+1 = N i (1-N i ) (bifurcation similar to the logistic map)
Control of Chaos OGY method (Ott-Grebogi-Yorke ‘89) Stabilization on a periodic orbit by a small time-dependent perturbation of one systems’ parameter Pyragas’ method Stabilization on a periodic orbit by delayed feedback Complete Synchronization of Chaos (Pecora and Carroll ‘90) Synchronization trough coupling between identical systems

For the Rössler attractor an angle coordinate can be introduced as the oscillator phase Φ. A sharp peak in the power spectrum indicates the presence of a dominant frequency of oscillation f=0.164.
We sample the trajectory at f=0.164. The points are scattered all over the attractor due to chaotic phase diffusion.
We introduce in the system a small perturbation P = A sin (2πft), called pacer : where f=0.164 is the dominant frequency and A=0.007 We sample the trajectory of the paced System at the pacer frequency and we get points that are located nearby each other, within a limited range. Phase Synchronization of Chaos: -E. Rosa, Jr., et al (1998) Phys. Rev. Lett. 80, 1642-1645; -M.G. Rosenblum et al (1996) Phys. Rev. Lett. 76, 1804-1807 ;

We apply Kirchoff’s law on the two loops: Plasma-Resistor-Source, and Resistor-Inductor-Capacitor -L p is the parasitic inductance of the discharge; -V p (I 1 ) is the nonlinear voltage-current characteristic of the plasma; -E is the high voltage. Numerical Model for the Experimental Set-up

We tune the two uncoupled systems until they show nearly the same dominant frequency in their power spectrum. The frequency mismatch of the peaks is about Δf ≈ 50 Hz.
Time delay embedding is used to reconstruct the attractors of the two uncoupled systems. The delay is 2T S, where T S is the acquisition rate T S = 50µs.
We then couple the systems at Rc=0.7 KΩ. The peaks in the power spectrum are at exactly the same frequency.
We compute the phase of the acquired signals by using the Hilbert Transform (H): u (t)= arbitrary signal H (u(t)) = phase shift with π/2 of each component in the power spectrum of u (t), at any moment t. Instantaneous phase: Condition for Phase Synchronization:
We compute the phase difference ΔΦ = Φ Chua - Φ plasma of the time series acquired for different coupling strengths Rc Average time of chaotic transients :
During phase synchronization, the phase difference between the two signals is constant while their amplitudes remain chaotic Plasma Light Flux vs. Chua Voltage VC2 During a phase jump with 2 we observe on the scope a burst perpendicular on the 45º line
