Type I intermittency in a dynamical system with dichotomous parameter change

In type I intermittency, simple models known for at least twenty years show that a characteristic u-shaped probability distribution is obtained for the laminar phase length. We have shown elsewhere that, for some cases of pathology, the laminar phase length distribution characteristic for type I intermittency may be obtained in human heart rate variability data. The heart and its regulatory systems are presumed to be both noisy and nonstationary. Although the effect of additive noise on the laminar phase distribution in type I intermittency is well known, neither the effect of multiplicative noise nor of nonstationarity (i.e. changes of the control parameter with the time) have been studied. In this paper, we first discuss the properties of two classes of models of type I intermittency: a) the control parameter of the logistic map is changed dichotomously from a value within the intermittency range to just below the bifurcation point and back; b) the control parameter is changed randomly within the same parameter range as in the model class a). We show that the properties of both models are importantly different from those obtained for type I intermittency in the presence additive noise as obtained by Hirsch twenty years ago. The two models help explain some of the features seen in the intermittency in human heart rate variability.
