    Spiral chaos appears in the two-dimensional Aliev-Panfilov model. The generation mechanism of the spiral chaos is related to the breathing instability of pulse trains. The spiral chaos can be eliminated by applying periodic force uniformly. The elimination of the spiral chaos is most effective when the frequency of the periodic force is close to that of the breathing motion.
