  • Synchronization of chaos in an array of three lasers 

    Terry, John R.; Thornburg, K. Scott; DeShazer, David J.; VanWiggeren, Gregory D.; Zhu, Shiqun; Ashwin, Peter; Roy, Rajarshi (American Physical Society, 1999)
    Synchronization of the chaotic intensity fluctuations of three modulated Nd:YAG lasers oriented in a linear array with either a modulated pump or loss is investigated experimentally, numerically, and analytically. ...
  • Tangencies in invariant disc packings for certain planar piecewise isometries are rare 

    Ashwin, Peter; Fu, Xin-Chu (Taylor & Francis, 2001)
    For planar piecewise isometries (PWIs) (two-dimensional maps that restrict to isometries on some partition) there is a natural coding given by the itinerary of a trajectory between the pieces (atoms) of the partition on ...
  • Thresholds for the formation of satellites in two-dimensional vortices 

    Turner, M. R.; Gilbert, Andrew D. (Cambridge University Press, 2008)
    This paper examines the evolution of a two-dimensional vortex which initially consists of an axisymmetric monopole vortex with a perturbation of azimuthal wavenumber m = 2 added to it. If the perturbation is weak, then the ...
  • Two-state intermittency near a symmetric interaction of saddle-node and Hopf bifurcations: a case study from dynamo theory 

    Ashwin, Peter; Rucklidge, Alastair M.; Sturman, Rob (Elsevier, 2004)
    We consider a model of a Hopf bifurcation interacting as a codimension 2 bifurcation with a saddle-node on a limit cycle, motivated by a low-order model for magnetic activity in a stellar dynamo. This model consists of ...
  • Vortex motion in a weak background shear flow 

    Bajer, Konrad; Bassom, Andrew P.; Gilbert, Andrew D. (Cambridge University Press, 2004)
    A point vortex is introduced into a weak background vorticity gradient at finite Reynolds number. As the vortex spreads viscously so the background vorticity becomes wrapped around it, leading to enhanced diffusion of ...
  • What is the spatial distribution of magnetic helicity injected in a solar active region? 

    Pariat, E.; Nindos, A.; Démoulin, P.; Berger, M.A. (EDP Sciences, 2006)
    Context. Magnetic helicity is suspected to play a key role in solar phenomena such as flares and coronal mass ejections. Several investigations have recently computed the photospheric flux of magnetic helicity in active ...
