Synchronization of Chimera States in Ensembles of Nonlocally Coupled Cubic Maps

Background and Objectives: Effects of mutual and external synchronization of chimera states are studied in two coupled ensembles of discrete maps. Each of the ensembles is a onedimensional ring of nonlocally coupled cubic maps in the chaotic oscillation mode. In order to create differences in the dynamics of the ensembles when there is no coupling between them, a mismatch is introduced in the parameters of the individual oscillators of the first and second rings. Effects of external and mutual synchronization of chimera states are explored in detail.

Influence of Time-delay in the Coupling Channel on the Complete Synchronization of Chaos

In the current work the influence of delay in a coupling channel on the synchronization of regular and chotic oscillations in discrete maps and continuous time systems is studied. It is established that introduction of time delay in a discrete system prevents synchronization of chaos but allows synchronization of periodic and quasiperiodic oscillations.
