Instabilities in Systems with Threshold Dynamics: Experiments and Theory
First experimental study, using electronic circuits, of highly
nonlinear dynamics, including chaos of coupled stick-slip elements.
Numerical results are used to analyze the dynamics.
First experimental verification, using granular assemblies, of the
Guttemberg-Richter (power) law for earthquake intensities.
