Review of Actual Problems of Nonlinear Dynamics

Turbulence in microwave electronics: teoretical approaches and experimental results

A review of the current state of different theoretical approaches to the description of turbulence in electron beams and electronic devices at microwave frequencies is shown. A three types of turbulent (nonlaminar) electron beams were considered. The first type of turbulent electron beam is caused by the intersection of electronic trajectories (e.g., due to thermal velocity) and it is common to the flow of electrons at all.

Mathematical theory of dynamical chaos and its applications: review part 1. Pseudohyperbolic attractors

We consider important problems of modern theory of dynamical chaos and its applications. At present, it is customary to assume that in the finite-dimensional smooth dynamical systems three fundamentally different forms of chaos can be observed.

«Exotic» models of high-intensity wave physics: linearizing equations, exactly solvable problems and non-analytic nonlinearities

Topic and aim. A brief review of publications and discussion of some mathematical models are presented, which, in the author’s opinion, are well-known only to a few specialists. These models are not well studied, despite their universality and practical significance. Since the results were published at different times and in different journals, it is useful to summarize them in one article. The goal is to form a general idea of the subject for the readers and to interest them with mathematical, physical or applied details described in the cited references.

Simple electronic chaos generators and their circuit simulation

Topic and aim. The aim of the work is to review circuits of chaos generators, those described in the literature and some original ones, in a unified style basing on circuit simulations with the NI Multisim package, which makes the comparison of the various devices apparent. Investigated models.

Nonlinear dynamical models of neurons: Review

Topic. A review of the basic dynamical models of neural activity is presented and individual features of their behavior are discussed, which can be used as a basis for the subsequent development and construction of various configurations of neural networks. The work contains both new original results and generalization of already known ones published earlier in different journals.

Fractional models in hydromechanics

Topic and purpose. The last two decades are marked by wide spreading fractional calculus in theoretical description of the natural processes. Replacement of the integer-order operators by their fractional (and even complex) counterparts opens up a continuous field of new differential equations in which the standard set of equations of theoretical physics (wave, diffusion, etc.) is represented by separate spikelets at points with integer coordinates. But what do the fractional-order derivatives mean physically?
