We consider the effects of parametric perturbation on the onset of chaos in different dynamical systems. Favoring or suppression of chaos was observed depending on the phase or the frequency of the periodic perturbation. A lowering of the threshold of chaos was observed in an electronic device simulating a Josephson-Junction model and the suppression of chaos was obtained in a bistable mechanical device. We showed that in case of spatial instability in a sample of liquid crystal, the action of the parametric perturbation is to modify the velocity and the onset of the defects. Considering that the emergence of defects precedes the threshold of spatio-temporal chaos, we infer that parametric perturbation can modify the threshold of chaos in this spatial dynamical system.
