Abstract
Erratic wave break-ups can cause spatiotemporal disorder (often called 'turbulence') in excitable media, Using different experimental setups of the Belousov-Zhabotinsky reaction, as well as simulations, we show that a finite number of pulses, each of which causes backfiring (splitting) of the waves, completely annihilates the disordered waves. Considering formal analogies, one may similarly control cardiac fibrillation. (C) 2002 Elsevier Science B.V. All rights reserved.
