Figure 6: Turbulent destruction of chimera states.

Figure 6

Chimera states are being progressively destroyed as parameter β is increased, through a turbulent evolution of the chimera pattern (Φ0=−0.4, at point A in the (ɛ,δ) plane of Fig. 2). Turbulence occurs as irregular, more and more frequent, vanishing and appearing events of chimera heads as time n is running. (a) β=2.4. (b) β=4.0.
