By using the fact that Jacobian transports derivative along the orbit of the invariant manifold, a new algorithm for computing 1D manifold is proposed first. The new mesh point is located with a Prediction-Correction scheme which reduces the searching time and at the same time gives rise to a simplified accuracy condition. Two dimensional manifold is computed by covering it with orbits of 1D sub-manifold. A generalized Foliation Condition is used to guarantee that the 2D manifold is growing uniformly along the orbits of 1D sub-manifold in different directions. The performance of the algorithm is demonstrated with hyper chaotic 3D Hénon map and Lorenz system.
