Considering two identical, coupled chaotic oscillators describing the spiking behavior of pancreatic β-cells, this contribution examines the bifurcations through which low-periodic orbits embedded in the synchronized chaotic state lose their transverse stability and produce the characteristic picture of a riddled basin of attraction. We also discuss different types of locally and globally riddled basins that arise for different combinations of coupling parameters. © 2000 American Institute of Physics.

    The phenomenon of hard excitation is natural for many electronic oscillators. In particular, in a gyrotron, a maximal efficiency is often attained in the hard excitation regime. In this paper, we study the injection-locking phenomena using two models of an electronic maser in the hard excitation...

    To determine whether β-cell function could be impaired by the treatment for Wilms' tumour (WT) in childhood, we investigated the insulin secretion of 44 survivors of WT (22 males) with a median off-treatment follow up of 8.3 years (range 1–19.8). All patients had an intravenous glucose...
