Paper Abstract

We study the dynamics of excitation pulses in a modified Oregonator model for the light-sensitive Belousov-Zhabotinsky (BZ)reaction assuming that the intensity of the applied illumination is a spatiotemporal stochastic field with finite correlation time and correlation length. For a two-component version of the model we discuss the dependence of the pulse speed on the characteristic parameters of the noise in the framework of a small noise approximation up to the first order in the correlation time. In the full three-component model we find enhancement of coherence resonance for suitable chosen correlation time. Based on this observation, we propose a mechanism for noise-enhanced propagation of pulse trains in excitable media subjected to external fluctuations.
