Search results for: chaotic dynamics
Local bifurcation theory is used to prove the existence of chaotic dynamics in two well-known models of tritrophic food chains. To the best of our knowledge, the simplest technique to guarantee the emergence of strange attractors in a given family of vector fields consists of finding a 3-dimensional nilpotent singularity of codimension 3 and verifying some generic algebraic conditions. We provide the essential background regarding...

Numerical analysis of chaotic dynamics is a challenging task. The one-parameter families of logistic maps and closely related quadratic maps f_a(x)=a-x^2 are well-known examples of such dynamical systems. Determining parameter values that yield stochastic-like dynamics is especially difficult, because although this set has positive Lebesgue measure,...
