Scaling properties of spatially extended chaotic systems

We investigate the scaling properties of Lyapunov eigenvectors and exponents in coupled-map lattices exhibiting space-time chaos. A deep interrelation between spatiotemporal chaos and kinetic roughening of surfaces is postulated. We show that the logarithm of unstable eigenvectors exhibits scale-invariance with roughness exponents that can be predicted by a simple scaling conjecture. We argue that these scaling properties should be generic in spatially homogeneous extended systems with local diffusive-like couplings.
