How similar is the performance of the cubic and the piecewise-linear circuits of Chua?

Physics Letters A, 375(2):143-148.

This Letter reports phase diagrams quantifying and contrasting the dynamical performance of the paradigmatic piecewise-linear and cubic circuits of Chua. Although both circuits may be regarded as macroscopically isomorphic over wide regions in control parameter space, we show that their microscopic structure displays a myriad of rather distinctive intrinsic features making them unique. Inhomogeneities embedded in periodic and chaotic phases complicate some applications of the circuits but may also adequately act as realistic noise proxies in synchronization problems. In addition, infinite cascades of spirals and hubs observed experimentally very recently in a related dissipative flow are shown to be also present in both circuits of Chua, emerging however in a rather distinctive asymmetric way. Thus Chuas circuits may be used to study experimentally elusive and theoretically intricate phenomena generating periodicity hubs.
