Using Chaos to Reduce Oscillations
A. Dabrowski and T. Kapitaniak

Chaotic dynamical systems are usually controlled in a way which allows the replacement of chaotic behavior by the desired periodic motion. We give the example in which an originally regular (periodic) system is controlled in such a way as to make it chaotic. This approach based on the idea of dynamical absorber allows the significant reduction of the amplitude of the oscillations in the neighborhood of the resonance.
Key words: chaotic behaviour, resonance
