This senior project investigates chaotic behavior and controlled chaos in electrical circuits. It primarily focuses on two types of circuits: one with a varicap diode and one with a operational amplifier based Chua diode. These are the non-linear elements of the circuit that produce chaotic behavior in voltage outputs. Attempts to get the circuits to function correctly were unsuccessful, but the project includes a theoretical investigation of the chaotic behavior of the circuits through bifurcations and period doubling, as well as ways this behavior could be theoretically controlled.
