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.
