close to ffl PB . Consider as an initial condition a pulse with a finite perturbation in its tail, (T = 0 in fig. 3.4 and fig. 3.5). As one can readily see, the perturbation rapidly grows (T = 250) creating two pulses moving in opposite directions (T = 1000). As time increases, the rightmost pulse moves away from the remaining pattern and does not interact any further. The pattern moving with apparently constant velocity to the left develops more oscillations (T = 3000 \Gamma 9000) forming a front connecting YA and a neighborhood of the unstable YC . The important dynamical consequence of this structure is that behind the front, pulse-like waves are emitted constantly in both directions. While the ones traveling in the direction of the original excitation merge the leading front, a sequence of pulses is observed to move in the

Comprehensive Summaries of Uppsala Dissertations from the Faculty of Science and Technology 279. 48 pp. Uppsala. ISBN 91-554-3972-1. The aim of this work has been to analyse global bifurcations arising in a laser with injected signal and in a catalytic reaction on a surface of Pt, from the point of view of dynamical systems theory. The 3-dimensional ordinary differential equation which models the laser was found to contain a homoclinic orbit to a saddle-focus equilibrium, what corresponds to the Sil'nikov phenomenon. It is well known that under certain eigenvalue relationship, this global bifurcation displays chaotic dynamics. In this problem the fixed point was also involved in a Hopf/saddle-node local bifurcation. The interaction of the Sil'nikov phenomenon and the saddle-node bifurcation was studied by constructing a geometrical model. It was determined that a...

An analysis of the nonlinear dynamics of current modulated weakly index-guided VCSELs in a multi--transverse mode regime is performed by using a model that takes into account all the transverse modes supported bythe waveguide. Nonlinear dynamical behavior is studied when applying current modulation of high frequency and large modulation depth. Chaotic behavior is obtained in the multitransverse mode regime due to transverse mode competition. Chaotic operation is suchthatmultistabilityofthechaos-chaos type is observed. Injection of appropriate optical pulses can switchbetween different stable chaotic solutions. The case of a VCSEL in which the fundamental mode is selected is also analysed. Nonlinear dynamics of the single mode VCSEL is such that the chaotic behavior is not present for the considered range of current modulation amplitudes and frequencies. Only periodic behaviors are observed, in such away that multistability of different periodic solutions also appears. Switching between different stable periodic solutions also appears when appropriate external optical pulses are injected. Finally,weshow that spontaneous emission noise increases the numberofavailable channels in chaotic optical communication systems in which frequency division multiplexing with multi-transverse mode VCSELs is used.

In this paper, we estimate the errors due to observational noise on the recurrence quantification analysis (RQA). Based on this estimation, we present ways to minimize these errors. We give a criterion to choose the threshold ε needed for the optimal computation of the recurrence plot (RP). One important point is to show the limits of interpretability of the results of the RQA if it is applied to measured time series. We show that even though the RQA is very susceptible to observational noise, it can yield reliable results for an optimal choice of ε if the noise level is not too high. We apply the results to typical models, such as white noise, the logistic map and the Lorenz system, and to experimental laser data.
