Abstract:

This is the final report on this project. The objectives were threefold 1 to study the chemical and biological activity in environmental flows often involving larger particles which are influenced by inertia, buoyance, Stokes drag, and gravity forces 2 to establish to what extent a natural chaotic system can be modeled deterministically and 3 to demonstrate theoretically and experimentally that we can encode a message in a power oscillator source which is then transmitted through some communication channel e.g. optical fiber, microwave antenna to be received by a decoder which translates the message back to its original form, the goal being to use a method for synchronizing a chaotic oscillator to the incoming signal such that in-band noise is reduced.
