Abstract

As studied in the previous chapters, a (general) system consists of a set of objects and a set of relations between the objects. However, in practice, many systems, which can be described with only one relation, have many complicated structures and properties that we still do not completely understand. To address such concerns, this chapter concentrates two fascinating properties—chaos and attractors—of single-relation systems. In particular, Section 8.1 studies the concept of chaos and related properties and characterizations. And Section 8.2 considers the concept of attractors and its characterizations.
