    The effect of an asymmetry upon the synchronous chaos in coupled systems with period doubling is studied by numerical methods. The introduction of an asymmetry after the loss of the transverse superstability imparts fractal properties to the synchronous chaotic attractor. On approaching the...

    Noise-induced escape from a quasi-attractor, and from the Lorenz attractor with non-fractal boundaries, are compared through measurements of optimal paths. It has been found that, for both types of attractor, there exists a most probable (optimal) escape trajectory, the prehistory of the escape...
