On the Mechanisms Behind Chaos

Research output: Contribution to journalJournal articleResearchpeer-review


Chaotic systems are observed everywhere. Electronic circuit analogues based on the differential equations of the models for the chaotic systems are often used to study the nature of chaotic systems. This tutorial is an attempt to classify electronic chaotic oscillators according to the mechanism behind the chaotic behavior, e.g. one group is based on the sudden interrupt of inductive currents, another group is based on the sudden parallel coupling of capacitors with different voltages, and a third group may be based on multiplication of signals. An example of chaos based on disturbance of integration is discussed in details.
