FIG. 1.

Bifurcation diagram. The solid lines represent the standard theoretical prediction of , the saturated island width, for three different values of [cf. Eq. (17)]. The numerical data with , , and are represented with triangles, circles, and squares, respectively. Full symbols show cases with while for the empty symbols . A case with is added for comparison (crosses). The dashed lines show the prediction of the new theory, where is calculated using Eq. (26). The radial width of the numerical box is .
