Experimental investigation of micro-chaos

Micro-chaos is a phenomenon when small amplitude chaotic oscillations are inflicted by digital effects (sampling, roundoff and processing delay). In previous works, various digitally controlled unstable linear mechanical systems were analysed; the corresponding micro-chaos maps were derived and the coexistence of several disconnected chaotic attractors was proven. The distance of the farthest attractor from the desired state can be quite large, while the size of these attractors is usually negligible from practical point of view.
