5 November 1993 Spatiotemporal oscillations and chaos induced by an electrical field
Author Affiliations +
In this work we investigate the effect of direct and alternating current on spatial and spatiotemporal patterns in two ionic Brusselator models. While the electrical field strength is assumed to be spatially homogeneous in one model, the other model takes local variations of the electrical field caused by the different mobility of ions into account. An externally applied electrical field distorts stationary Turing patterns and induces oscillatory behavior. If bulk oscillations in a spatially distributed system are perturbed by alternating current, deterministic chaos may be found.
