We study low-dimensional dynamical systems, i.e., systems described by one-dimensional noninvertible or two-dimensional invertible maps. For such systems it is often possible to obtain analytic understanding of generic properties of transient chaos that are shared by more realistic physical systems. For example, for a higher-dimensional system, one-dimensional maps can be used to model the dynamics along the unstable manifold [564, 220].
