Chaotic synchronization : applications to living systems / Erik Mosekilde, Yuri Maistrenko, Dmitry Postnov.

Interacting chaotic oscillators are of interest in many areas of physics, biology, and engineering. In the biological sciences, for instance, one of the challenging problems is to understand how a group of cells or functional units, each displaying complicated nonlinear dynamic phenomena, can intera...
