The effect of coupling sensitivity of chaos is known as logarithmic singular behavior of the Lyapunov exponents of coupled chaotic systems at small values of the coupling parameter. In order to study it analytically, we use a continuous-time stochastic model which can be treated by means of the Fokker-Planck equation. One main result is that the singularity depends on the fluctuations of the finite-time Lyapunov exponents and on the mismatch between the coupled systems. We derive scaling relations for the Lyapunov exponents and give a qualitative explanation of the origin of the logarithmic singularity. The analytical predictions are compared with results of numerical calculations for different deterministic systems. © 2000 American Institute of Physics.

    Stochastic Resonance (SR) is a well known process whereby the transmission of a weak periodic signal through some nonlinear systems can be improved by adding a random perturbation (noise). Unlike the conventional SR, we produce this phenomenon by adding a chaotic perturbation to the system. We...
