ABSTRACT This paper studies a pulse-coupled network consisting of simple chaotic spiking oscillators (CSOs). If a unit oscillator and its neighbor(s) have (almost) the same parameter values, they exhibit in-phase synchronization of chaos. As the parameter values differ, they exhibit asynchronous phenomena. Based on such behavior, some synchronous groups appear partially in the network. Typical phenomena are verified in the laboratory via a simple test circuit. These phenomena can be evaluated numerically by using an effective mapping procedure. We then apply the proposed network to image segmentation. Using a lattice pulse-coupled network via grouping synchronous phenomena, the input image data can be segmented into some sub-regions.

    ABSTRACT: This paper studies piecewise constant cir-cuits with an impulsive switch. Since vector field of the circuit equation is piecewise constant, the trajectories are piecewise linear : it is well suited for precise analysis. First, we consider the autonomous case. The switch is controlled by a state and the circuits can exhibit chaotic behavior. Sec-ond, we consider the non-autonomous case. The switch is controlled by time and the circuits can exhibit rich super stable periodic behavior. We have confirmed the behavior in numerical simulations and embedded return maps have a flat part. Typical phenomena can be confirmed experimen-tally.

    ABSTRACT: In this paper the issue of structure based learning of Hopfield like chaotic neural networks is investigated in such a way that all neurons behave in a synchronous manner. By utilizing the idea of structured inverse eigenvalue problem and the sufficient conditions on the coupling weights of a network which guarantee the synchronization of all neuron's outputs, we propose a learning method for tuning the coupling weights of a network where not only synchronize all neuron's outputs with each other but also brings about any desirable topology for the structure of the network. Specifically, this method is evaluated by performing simulations on the scale-free topology.

    ABSTRACT: This paper studies chaos synchronization-based data transmission scheme in multiple sink wireless sensor networks. In the proposed scheme, each wireless sensor node has a simple chaotic oscillator. The oscillators generate impulsive signals with chaotic interspike intervals, and are impulsively coupled by the signals via wireless communica-tion. Each wireless sensor node transmits and receives sensor information only in the timing of the couplings. The proposed scheme can exhibit various synchronization and quasi-synchronization of chaos, and can effectively gather sensor information with low energy consumption. Also, the proposed scheme can flexibly adapt various wireless sensor networks not only with a single sink node but also with multiple sink nodes. We evaluate the proposed scheme using computer simulations. Through simulation experiments, we show effectiveness of the proposed scheme and discuss its development potential.
