Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

A renormalisation approach to investigate travelling wave solutions of an excitable reaction- diusion system on a deterministic fractal structure has recently been derived. The dynamics of a particular class of solutions which are governed by a two dimensional subspace of these renormalisation recursion relationships are discussed in this paper. The bifurcations of this mapping are discussed with reference to the discontinuities which arise at the singularities. The map is chaotic for a bounded region in parameter space and bounds on the Hausdor dimension of the associated invariant hyperbolic set are calculated.
