A quasi-logistic, nonlinear model for ionization wave modes is introduced. Modes are due to finite size of the discharge and current feedback. The model consists of competing coupled modes and it incorporates spatial wave amplitude saturation. The hysteresis of wave mode transitions under current variation is reproduced. Sidebands are predicted by the model and found in experimental data. The ad hoc model is equivalent to a general—so-called universal—approach from bifurcation theory.

    The stable problem of rotor system, seen in many fields, has been cared for more. Nowadays the reasons of most losing stability are caused by nonlinear behavior. This presents higher requirements to the designing of motor system: considering nonlinear elements, avoiding the unstable parameter...
