Title: On The Chaotic Dynamics Of Multiple Double Layers In Plasma

Abstract

When a multiple double layers structure in plasma is driven far from equilibrium, it passes into a chaotic state, characterized by uncorrelated oscillations of the plasma parameters. Two scenarios of transition to chaos were identified: the Feigenbaum scenario (cascade of period doubling bifurcations) and the intermittency scenario.
