According to Miliotis, Sinha, and Ditto
By applying nonlinear dynamics to the dense storage of information, we demonstrate how a single nonlinear dynamical element can store M items, where M is variable and can be large. This provides the capability for naturally storing data in different bases or in different alphabets and can be used to implement multilevel logic. Further we show how this method of storing information can serve as a preprocessing tool for (exact or inexact) pattern matching searches. Since our scheme involves just a single procedural step, it is naturally set up for parallel implementation and can be realized with hardware currently employed for chaos-based computing architectures.
