We present the first algorithms that allow the estimation of nonnegative Lyapunov exponents from an experimental time series. Lyapunov exponents, which provide a qualitative and quantitative characterization of dynamical behavior, are related to the exponentially fast divergence or convergence of nearby orbits in phase space. A system with one or more positive Lyapunov exponents is defined to be chaotic. Our method is rooted conceptually in a previously developed technique that could only be applied to analytically defined model systems: we monitor the longterm growth rate of small volume elements in an attractor. The method is tested on model systems with known Lyapunov spectra, and applied to data for the BelousovZhabotinskii reaction and CouetteTaylor flow. Contents 1.
Mixedmode oscillations with multiple time scales

Mixedmode oscillations (MMOs) are trajectories of a dynamical system in which there is an alternation between oscillations of distinct large and small amplitudes. MMOs have been observed and studied for over thirty years in chemical, physical, and biological systems. Few attempts have been made thus far to classify different patterns of MMOs, in contrast to the classification of the related phenomena of bursting oscillations. This paper gives a survey of different types of MMOs, concentrating its analysis on MMOs whose smallamplitude oscillations are produced by a local, multipletimescale “mechanism. ” Recent work gives substantially improved insight into the mathematical properties of these mechanisms. In this survey, we unify diverse observations about MMOs and establish a systematic framework for studying their properties. Numerical methods for computing different types of invariant manifolds and their intersections are an important aspect of the analysis described in this paper.

Most of the recent literature on chaos and nonlinear dynamics is written either for popular science magazine readers or for advanced mathematicians. This paper gives a broad introduction to this interesting and rapidly growing field at a level that is between the two. The graphical and analytical tools used in the literature are explained and demonstrated, the rudiments of the current theory are outlined and that theory is discussed in the context of several examples: an electronic circuit, a chemical reaction and a system of satellites in the solar system. 9112378
