Experimental Observation of Synchronous Competition in the Chua System
Physical Review E
We present experimental results for two different sinusoidal functions competing to phase synchronize a Chua oscillator. Our approach involves real-time observation of the synchronization process. It shows that depending on the amplitude and frequency values of the two sinusoidal functions, the Chua oscillator can stay phase synchronized to one or the other of the inputs all the time or can alternate synchronous states between them. Numerical simulations show good agreement with the experimental observations.
