  • Direct solution for the power spectrum of the Lorenz attractor. Andrews, P. L.; Waltz, R. E. // Physics of Fluids (00319171);Nov88, Vol. 31 Issue 11, p3168 

    A novel method is applied to the Lorenz system that deals directly with the power spectrum of the turbulent solutions. Analytic predictions are produced as to the level of turbulence and the spread in frequency space of the solution that are in good agreement with numerical computations. The...

    From a topological point of view, periodic orbits of three dimensional dynamical systems are knots, that is, circles (S∧1) embedded in the three sphere (S∧3) or in R∧3. The ensemble of periodic orbits comprising the skeleton of a 3-D strange attractor form a link: a collection of...

    It has been shown that forced Lorenz models generally maintain their two-lobe structure, just giving rise to changes in the occurrence of their regimes. Here, using the richness of a unified formalism for Kolmogorov-Lorenz systems, we show that introducing oscillating forcings can lead to the...

  • Ellipsoidal Chaos. Zehrour, Okba; Elhadj, Zeraoulia // Nonlinear Studies;2012, Vol. 19 Issue 1, p71 

    In this paper, we report the finding of sufficient conditions for the chaotic solution of general 3-D dynamical system to be contained in an ellipsoidal set. The resulting chaotic attractor is called Ellipsoidal Chaos. We prove also that the set of ellipsoidal chaos is not empty because the...

  • Dynamics of stochastic Lorenz family of chaotic systems with jump. Huang, Zaitang; Cao, Junfei; Jiang, Ting // Journal of Mathematical Chemistry;Feb2014, Vol. 52 Issue 2, p754 

    This paper discusses the Lorenz family of chaotic systems under the influence of poisson noise. We obtain the sufficient and necessary conditions for stochastic stability under some assumptions for stochastic Lorenz family of chaotic systems with jump. We then investigate the estimation of the...

    We study a class of geometric Lorenz flows, introduced independently by Afraimovič, Bykov & Sil′nikov and by Guckenheimer & Williams, and give a verifiable condition for such flows to be mixing. As a consequence, we show that the classical Lorenz attractor is mixing.

    Another approach is developed for generating two-wing hyperchaotic attractor, four-wing chaotic attractor, and high periodic orbits such as period-14 from a sinusoidally driven based canonical Lorenz system. A sinusoidal function controller is introduced into a 3D autonomous Lorenz system, so...
