Spatiotemporal chaos in a multidomain regime in a Gunn-effect device is numerically investigated as an example of collective domain oscillations under global constraints. The dynamics of carrier densities are computed using a set of model partial differential equations. Numerical results reveal some distinctive and chaotic clustering features caused by the global coupling and boundary effects. The chaotic regime is then characterized in terms of a Lyapunov spectrum and Lyapunov dimension, the latter increasing with the size of the system.
