             abstract = "Pairs of delay-coupled chaotic systems were shown to be able to 
                         achieve isochronal synchronization under bidirectional coupling 
                         and self-feedback. Such identical-in-time behavior was 
                         demonstrated to be stable under a set of conditions and to support 
                         simultaneous bidirectional communication between pairs of chaotic 
                         oscillators coupled with time-delay. More recently, it was shown 
                         that isochronal synchronization can emerge in networks with 
                         several hundreds of oscillators, which allows its exploitation for 
                         communication in distributed systems. In this paper, we introduce 
                         a conceptual framework for the application of isochronal 
                         synchronization to TDMA communication in networks of delay-coupled 
                         chaotic oscillators. On the basis of the stable and 
                         identical-in-time behavior of delay-coupled chaotic systems, the 
                         chaotic dynamics of distributed oscillators is used to support and 
                         sustain coordinate communication among nodes over the network. On 
                         the basis of the unique features of chaotic systems in isochronal 
                         synchronization, the chaotic signals are used to timestamp clock 
                         readings at the physical layer such that logical clock 
                         synchronization among the nodes (a prerequisite for TDMA) can be 
                         exploited using the same basic structure. The result is a 
                         standalone network communication scheme that can be advantageously 
                         applied in the context of ad-hoc networks or alike, especially 
                         short-ranged ones that yield low values of time-delay. As explored 
                         to its depths in practical implementations, this conceptual 
                         framework is argued to have potential to provide gain in 
                         simplicity, security and efficiency in communication schemes for 
                         autonomous/standalone network applications.",
