MS5 Communicating with Chaos

The realization that chaos can be controlled by small perturbations leads to the idea that chaotic systems can be used to produce a signal bearing desired information. In fact, it has been demonstrated experimentally that the symbolic dynamics of a chaotic attractor can be made to follow a prescribed symbol sequence, so any desired message can be encoded and transmitted. In this minisymposium the basic ideas of chaos in communication and the experiments that demonstrate their implementation will be presented. Recent developments in higher dimensional encoding and filtering of in-band noise will also be introduced.
