    • Abstract


      We report the existence of chimera states in an assembly of identical nonlinear oscillators that are globally linked to each other in a simple planar cross-coupled form. The rotational symmetry breaking of the coupling term appears to be responsible for the emergence of these collective states that display a characteristic coexistence of coherent and incoherent behaviour. The finding, observed in both a collection of van der Pol oscillators and chaotic Rössler oscillators, further simplifies the existence criterion for chimeras, thereby broadens the range of their applicability to real-world situations.
