parameter) so as to force the system trajectory directly onto the stable manifold of a desired unstable periodic orbit. Consequently, the system walks toward the unstable periodic orbit along the stable manifold. Eventually, it is repelled from that orbit, at which point PPF control again intervenes to constrain the system. The PPF technique has been used, for example, to control the interspike intervals of arrhythmic cardiac tissue and spontaneously bursting neuronal networks.
