    I consider that this article gives readers a nice basic of Coupled Map(s) which is one of typical platforms for investigating dynamical system with high degree of freedom. In this article, we also find several impressive animations which largely help readers to intuitively grasp how Couple Maps work and for what phenomena Coupled Maps are usable as computational/mathematical tools. In these regards, this article should be included in the Scholarpedia.

    The below are points for which I feel more detailed explanations or brief collections are needed:

    In Sec.1 Introduction-- (A) Choose a (set of) field variable(s) on a lattice. This set of variable(s) is not at the microscopic but the macroscopic level.

    -->some more details on the definition of microscopic/macroscopic are required.

    In Sec.2-1 Frozen Random Patterns-- Through the time evolution, domains of different sizes, with different phases of oscillations are formed as an attractor.

    --> why is 'attractor' written in singular form in this case ?

    In Sec.2-3 Spatio-temporal Intermittency--

    -->Why the movies for Type-II STI are not presented? I consider the direct comparison between Type-I and Type-II STIs through the demonstration by movies is attractive for readers.

    In Sec.4 References --

    The following book edited by one of the present authors, also, is a nice reference for Coupled Maps, (if the book is not very hard to access).
