Paper Abstract

Theoretically, a nonlinear system can be entrained to many selected behaviors by resonance excitation. A sufficiently accurate model of the nonlinear system is needed to compute the control sequence, but incomplete models may be used as the basis for experiments to probe the dynamics and extract additional model details. We report our efforts to control the chaotic oscillations of the Belousov- Zhabotinsky reaction and related chemical oscillators. Instrumentation and the interaction of laboratory constraints with the modeling algorithm are discussed.
