Study of hidden oscillations and hidden chaotic attractors (basin of attraction of which does not contain neighborhoods of equilibria) requires the development of special analytical-numerical methods. Development and application of such methods for localization of hidden chaotic attractors in dynamical model of Chua’s circuit are demonstrated in this work.
