Optimal Schedules of Light Exposure for Rapidly Correcting Circadian Misalignment
The top plot shows the entraining stimulus (LD-cycle) and the leftmost plot, the entrained limit cycle corresponding to this stimulus. Here pink corresponds to day and black to night. The middle plot shows the oscillations in the first coordinate of the entrained limit cycle. The last plot shows the phase of periodic stimulus or, equivalently, of the entrained oscillator. All significant features are labeled with the appropriate notation (See Methods, or Notation in supplemental text S1).
