    Analog to Digital Conversion in Physical Measurements

    Full text link
    There exist measuring devices where an analog input is converted into a digital output. Such converters can have a nonlinear internal dynamics. We show how measurements with such converting devices can be understood using concepts from symbolic dynamics. Our approach is based on a nonlinear one-to-one mapping between the analog input and the digital output of the device. We analyze the Bernoulli shift and the tent map which are realized in specific analog/digital converters. Furthermore, we discuss the sources of errors that are inevitable in physical realizations of such systems and suggest methods for error reduction.Comment: 9 pages in LATEX, 4 figures in ps.; submitted to 'Chaos, Solitons & Fractals

    Analytic conditions are used to predict the bounds in parameter space of the regions of existence of a non-chaotic strange attractor for the quasi-periodically forced van der Pol equation. One bound arises from the condition for existence of a simple quasi-periodic response to the forcing; the other appears to be related to the occurrence of a Hopf bifurcation in the averaged form of the equation

    Abstract--In this paper we introduce the concept of practical stability and practical stability in finite time for chaotic attractors. The connection between practical and asymptotic stability is discussed

    Sample-based approach can outperform the classical dynamical analysis - Experimental confirmation of the basin stability method

    In this paper we show the first broad experimental confirmation of the basin stability approach. The basin stability is one of the sample-based approach methods for analysis of the complex, multidimensional dynamical systems. We show that investigated method is a reliable tool for the analysis of dynamical systems and we prove that it has a significant advantages which make it appropriate for many applications in which classical analysis methods are difficult to apply. We study theoretically and experimentally the dynamics of a forced double pendulum. We examine the ranges of stability for nine different solutions of the system in a two parameter space, namely the amplitude and the frequency of excitation. We apply the path-following and the extended basin stability methods (Brzeski et al., Meccanica 51(11), 2016) and we verify obtained theoretical results in experimental investigations. Comparison of the presented results show that the sample-based approach offers comparable precision to the classical method of analysis. However, it is much simpler to apply and can be used despite the type of dynamical system and its dimensions. Moreover, the sample-based approach has some unique advantages and can be applied without the precise knowledge of parameter values

    Stabilization of unstable steady states by variable delay feedback control

    Full text link
    We report on a dramatic improvement of the performance of the classical time-delayed autosynchronization method (TDAS) to control unstable steady states, by applying a time-varying delay in the TDAS control scheme in a form of a deterministic or stochastic delay-modulation in a fixed interval around a nominal value T0T_0. The successfulness of this variable delay feedback control (VDFC) is illustrated by a numerical control simulation of the Lorenz and R\"{o}ssler systems using three different types of time-delay modulations: a sawtooth wave, a sine wave, and a uniform random distribution. We perform a comparative analysis between the VDFC method and the standard TDAS method for a sawtooth-wave modulation by analytically determining the domains of control for the generic case of an unstable fixed point of focus type.Comment: 7 pages, 4 figures, RevTe
