Extending the HKB model of coordinated movement to oscillators with different eigenfrequencies.


:We study the dynamics of a system of coupled nonlinear oscillators that has been used to model coordinated human movement behavior. In contrast to earlier work we examine the case where the two component oscillators have different eigenfrequencies. Problems related to the decomposition of a time series (from an experiment) into amplitude and phase are discussed. We show that oscillations at multiples of the main frequency of the oscillator system may occur in the phase and amplitude due to the choice of a coordinate system and how these oscillations can be eliminated. We derive an explicit equation for the dynamics of the relative phase of the oscillator system in phase space that enables a direct comparison between theory and experiment.

  • The structure of two-dimensional scalar fields with applications to vision.

    abstract::Two-dimensional scalar fields (e. g. pictures) are often described by way of a linear superposition of simple base functions. It is argued that such decompositions are often unnatural in the sense that the decomposition takes no regard of the structure of the field and it may happen that the parts are more complicated...
