@article{Yang2001ChaosIS, title={Chaos in small-world networks.}, author={X. Yang}, journal={Physical review. E, Statistical, nonlinear, and soft matter physics}, year={2001}, volume={63 4 Pt 2}, pages={ 046206 } }

A nonlinear small-world network model has been presented to investigate the effect of nonlinear interaction and time delay on the dynamic properties of small-world networks. Both numerical simulations and analytical analysis for networks with time delay and nonlinear interaction show chaotic features in the system response when nonlinear interaction is strong enough or the length scale is large enough. In addition, the small-world system may behave very differently on different scales. Time… Expand

There is one nontrivial length-scale in the small-world network model of Watts and Strogatz, analogous to the correlation length in other systems, which is well-defined in the limit of infinite system size and which diverges continuously as the randomness in the network tends to zero, giving a normal critical point in this limit.
