Abstract

The Oregonator is the simplest chemically plausible model for the Belousov-Zhabotinsky reaction. We investigate the response of the Oregonator to sinusoidal inputs with amplitudes and frequencies within plausible ranges. We focus on a regime where the unforced Oregonator is excitable (with no sustained oscillations). We use numerical simulations and dynamical systems tools to both characterize the response patterns and explain the underlying dynamic mechanisms.
