#### Significant Research Contributions

- Wavelength doubling bifurcations

This is the rst report of the observation of wavelength doubling bifurcations. The phenomena is observed in coupled map lattices. An analytic criterion for the observation of the phenomena is also obtained. The result is an important step in our under

- Control of chaos

(i) It is shown that a combination of adaptive control and synchronization can be used to estimate parameters of the system. (Phys. Rev. E 59, 284 (1999); Phys. Rev. E 61, 4986 (2000).) (ii) A novel idea of enhancing chaos in chaotic systems is suggest

- Complex Networks

(i) It is shown that coupled map dynamics on complex networks gives rise to phase synchronized clusters. Two interesting results are obtained. First, two types of clusters, self-organized and driven are identied. In self-organized clusters most of the

- Aggregation

The rst analytic calculation for the limiting fan density and the critical angle for ballistic aggregation is given. Interesting scaling properties for the densities are found numerically. The study of percolation on the aggregates has given useful in

- Amplitude death

An important phenomenon in coupled dynamical systems is amplitude death where the dynamics of the coupled systems is quenched or suppressed while the individual systems oscillate when uncoupled. We introduce a general mechanism for amplitude death in c

- Coupled map lattices

(i) The rst systematic analysis of the problem of the stability of spatially and temporally periodic solutions to coupled map lattice systems is done. It is shown that the problem can be reduced to the study of eigenvalues of matrices of much smaller

- Spatial synchronization and extinction

We show that a species rst undergoes spatial synchronization and then extinction. Thus a species cannot survive in isolated locations and cannot avoid extinction. The reason for this behavior is the competitive nature of interaction between members of

- Characterization of chaotic systems

(i) Mutual correlations : A novel method of characterizing correlations between dynamical variables is introduced by dening mutual correlation exponents. These exponents are geometric in nature and provide information about the system which is not eas

- Extreme events

We analyse extreme events on complex networks using the random walk model where the extreme events are dened as surpassing of the ux above a prescribed threshold. We nd that the nodes with smaller number of links are more prone to extreme events th
