Abstract

Existing works on coherence resonance, i.e., the phenomenon of noise-enhanced temporal regularity, focus on excitable dynamical systems such as those described by the FitzHugh-Nagumo equations. We extend the scope of coherence resonance to an important class of nonexcitable dynamical systems: coupled chaotic oscillators. In particular. we argue that, when a system of coupled chaotic oscillators in a noisy environment is viewed as a signal processing unit. the degree of temporal regularity of certain output signals may be modulated by noise and may reach a maximum value at some optimal noise level. Implications to signal processing in biological systems are pointed out.
