Abstract

A simple scalar coupled map lattice model for excitable media is intensively analysed in this paper. This model is used to explain the excitability of excitable media, and a Hopf-like bifurcation is employed to study the different spatio-temporal patterns produced by the model. Several basic rules for the construction of these kinds of models are proposed. Illustrative examples demonstrate that the sCML model is capable of generating complex spatiotemporal patterns.
