Abstract

A biological coupled oscillator system of a plasmodial slime mold, Physarum polycephalum, was studied. The existence of some of the oscillation patterns predicted by this theory was shown. Furthermore, the effectiveness of the symmetric Hopf bifurcation theory for practical systems was emphasized.
