spatio-temporal dynamics

Approaches to study of multistability in spatio-temporal dynamics of two-age population

Purpose of the work is to study spatio-temporal dynamics of limited two-age structured populations that populate a 2D habitat and capable of long-range displacement of individuals. We proposed the model that is the network of nonlocally coupled nonlinear maps with nonlinear coupling function. Conditions for the emergence of different types of heterogeneous spatial distribution, combining coherent and incoherent regimes in different sites and solitary states are studied. Methods.

Modeling of cardiac activity on the basis of maps: ensembles of coupled elements

The dynamics of coupled maps’ ensembles is investigated in the context of description of spatio-temporal processes in the myocardium. Particular, the dynamics of two coupled maps is explored as well as modeling the interaction of pacemaker (oscillatory) cell and myocyte (excitable cell), and the interation of two pacemakers. Setting of synchronous regime by increasing of coupling strength is considered through a coincidence of their characteristic time scales (characteristic frequencies).
