Original paper


The present study experimentally investigates amplitude death in delay-coupled double-scroll circuits with a time-varying network topology that randomly changes at a regular interval. Circuit experiments show that amplitude death can occur in the time-varying network. Furthermore, the experimental results well agree with the analytical results obtained based on a time-averaged adjacency matrix when the interval is much shorter than the natural period of the double-scroll circuits.
