Noise-induced order

  • K. Matsumoto
  • I. Tsuda


A new noise effect on chaos in one-dimensional mappings is reported. The transition from chaotic behavior to ordered behavior induced by external noise is observed in a certain class of one-dimensional mappings. This transition is clearly shown in terms of the Lyapunov number, entropy, power spectrum, and the nature of orbits.

Key words
