Lyapunov Exponents, Dimension and Entropy in Coupled Lattice Maps

  • R. M. Everson
Part of the NATO ASI Series book series (NSSB, volume 208)


Recent years have seen advances in understanding of complex dynamics and chaos displayed by rather simple systems. Some routes to chaos are now well understood and have been observed experimentally in diverse fields. Quantitative measures of the chaos, principally Lyapunov exponents, dimensions and entropies12have been developed and used to connect theory and experiment.
