Reflecting, Nonlocal, and Diagonal Coupling Topologies in Networks of the Coupled Dynamics Elements with Various Nature

Backgrounds and Objectives: Networks of coupled dynamical o scillators are of high interest for last decades. The interest to their dynamics greatly increases with the discovery of chimera states. The latter are characterized by the coexistence of regions with coherent and incoherent behavior. There are many works devoted to the networks with nonlocal coupling topology, but the influence of the coupling topology type has not been sufficiently studied.

Signal Propagation in Nerve Fiber

In this article a problem of signal propagation in nerve fiber is considered. Ohm’s losses and heat processes are taken into account. These permit to join two stages (metabolic and non-metabolic) of propagation and Na+ and K+ ions transmission through cell membrane connected with propagation. Electrodynamics of nerve fiber is described by telegraph equations with losses. Heat processes in fiber are described by an equation of entropy transfer.

Numerical Simulation of a Looped Tube 4-Stage Traveling-Wave Thermoacoustic Engine

Background and Objectives: The technology of thermoacoustic energy conversion is one of the most promising technologies for converting thermal energy into electrical one. A brief review of the achievements in development of the multi-stage traveling-wave engines was made. The numerical simulation of a 4-stage engine with a load was done. The aim of research was to determine the engine parameters, required to achieve the maximum of efficiency of the system and the acoustic power on the load.
