Abstract

Having discussed the phenomena of chaos and the routes leading to it in ‘simple’ one-dimensional settings, we continue with the exposition of chaos in dynamical systems of two or more dimensions. This is the relevant case for models in the natural sciences since very rarely can processes be described by only one single state variable. One of the main players in this context is the notion of strange attractors.
