oscillations and waves

Strange waves in the ensemble of van der Pol oscillators

The purpose of this paper is to study the processes of spatial disorder and the development of phase multistability in a discrete medium of anharmonic oscillators. Methods. An ensemble of diffusively coupled van der Pol oscillators is used as a model of discrete anharmonic medium. The model is investigated by numerical simulation; its phase dynamics is studied. The formed spatial structures are visualized by means of phase difference distribution. Results.
