Computer Simulation of a Chaotic Chua Circuit

Nonlinear Dynamical systems are common in many scientific disciplines. A particularly interesting problem is the phase synchronization of a chaotic signal with various types of external signals. This type of analysis has applications in a wide range of areas, from secure communication and encryption, to electronic filters. The main goal of our project is to study this situation using computer models. In this first part, we simulate a chaotic signal from a very simple electronic circuit that exhibits a chaotic behavior called Chua 's circuit. We wrote a computer program that allows us to visualize the real time response of the system to the variation of the parameter values. In the future, we will include the ability to study, in real time, the phase synchronization of the chaotic signal with a range of external signals.
