Lyapunov spectral analysis of a nonequilibrium Ising-like transition

Journal Article

By simulating a nonequilibrium coupled map lattice that undergoes an Ising-like phase transition, we show that the Lyapunov spectrum and related dynamical quantities such as the dimension correlation length~$\xi_\delta$ are insensitive to the onset of long-range ferromagnetic order. As a function of lattice coupling constant~$g$ and for certain lattice maps, the Lyapunov dimension density and other dynamical order parameters go through a minimum. The occurrence of this minimum as a function of~$g$ depends on the number of nearest neighbors of a lattice point but not on the lattice symmetry, on the lattice dimensionality or on the position of the Ising-like transition. In one-space dimension, the spatial correlation length associated with magnitude fluctuations and the length~$\xi_\delta$ are approximately equal, with both varying linearly with the radius of the lattice coupling.
