The transition to phase and amplitude turbulent states in the one-dimenĀsional complex Ginzburg-Landau equation is investigated by a numerical simulation. In order to describe existing attractors quantitatively, the largest Lyapunov exponent is estimated. The largest Lyapunov exponent is positive but small for the phase turbulence and it is much larger for the amplitude turbulence. Moreover, it seems independent on the system size. |
