Using Chaos as a Carrier of Information

Date: 1/29/2001

Henry Abarbanel
Professor, UCSD

Chaotic waveforms are "intermediate" between regular, sinusoidal signals and noise. They have sufficient structure in phase space to allow one to modulate information onto the waveforms, transmit the compound signal, and demodulate at a receiver. We will discuss general strategies for doing this, some practical considerations in accomplishing it, and some descriptions of wireless and optical implementations of these ideas. We will also discuss why one might want to do this.
