Characterization of Complex Systems by Aperiodic Driving Forces
The response of a complex system is usually very complicated if it is perturbed by a sinusiodal driving force. We show, however, that for every complex system there is a special aperiodic driving force which produces a simple response. This special driving force is related to a certain nonlinear differential equation. We propose to use the parameters of this differential equation to describe the complexity of the system.
