Bragard, J.; Boccaletti, S.; Mendoza, C. “Synchronization of spatially extended chaotic systems with asymmetric coupling”. En Brazilian Journal of Physics. 2005. Vol. 35 (2B). pp. 411-417, (2005).
In this paper, we report the consequences induced by the presence of asymmetries in the coupling scheme on
the synchronization process of a pair of one-dimensional complex fields obeying Complex Ginzburg Landau
equations. While synchronization always occurs for large enough coupling strengths, asymmetries have the
effect of modifying synchronization thresholds and play a crucial role in selecting the statistical and dynamical
properties of the highly coupled synchronized motion. Possible consequences of such symmetry induced effects in biological and natural systems are discussed.
