Spatio-temporal complexity in dual delay nonlinear laser dynamics: chimeras and dissipative solitons

We demonstrate for a nonlinear photonic system that two highly asymmetric feedback delays can induce a variety of emergent patterns which are highly robust during the system's global evolution. Explicitly, two-dimensional chimeras and dissipative …

Chimera States in Nonlinear Systems with Multiple Delayed Feedbacks

Coherent-incoherent motions known as chimera states have recently sparked substantial interest in the nonlinear dynamics community. Recent findings show that chimera states may appear in a wide range of natural phenomena. In the present contribution, …

On Theory and Modeling of Complex Nonlinear Delay Dynamics

The motivation behind our research in dynamical systems is an implementation of brain-inspired hardware. In the first part of the talk, we discuss the emergence of complex patterns in a nonlinear delay oscillator. Those self-organized formations …

Laser chimeras as a paradigm for multistable patterns in complex systems

A chimera state is a rich and fascinating class of self-organized solutions developed in high-dimensional networks. Necessary features of the network for the emergence of such complex but structured motions are non-local and symmetry breaking …
