Abstract
A transport barrier is introduced in the one-dimensional sandpile model by reducing the local flux in a barrier region. This reduction causes a modifi cation in the structure of the avalanches and triggers quasiperiodic fluctu ations of the particle fluxes. The frequency of these fluctuations is inver sely proportional to the transport barrier width. (C) 2001 American Institu te of Physics.
