Self-oscillating system generating rough hyperbolic chaos

Topic and aim. The aim of the work is design of rough chaos generator, whose attractor implements dynamics close to Anosov flow on a manifold of negative curvature, as well as constructing and analyzing mathematical model, and
conducting circuit simulation of the dynamics using the Multisim software.

Investigated models. A mathematical model is considered that is a set of ordinary differential equations of the ninth order with algebraic nonlinearity, and a circuit representing the chaos generator is designed.

Mathematical theory of dynamical chaos and its applications: Review Part 2. Spiral chaos of three-dimensional flows

The main goal of the present paper is an explanation of topical issues of the theory of spiral chaos of three-dimensional flows, i.e. the theory of strange attractors associated with the existence of homoclinic loops to the equilibrium of saddle-focus type, based on the combination of its two fundamental principles, Shilnikov’s theory and universal scenarios of spiral chaos, i.e. those elements of the theory that remain valid for any models, regardless of their origin.

Robust chaos in autonomous time-delay system

We consider an autonomous system constructed as modification of the logistic differential equation with delay that generates successive trains of oscillations with phases evolving according to chaotic maps. The system contains two feedback loops characterized by two generally distinct  retarding time parameters. In the case of their equality, chaotic dynamics is associated with the  Smale–Williams attractor that corresponds to the double-expanding circle map for the phases of the carrier of the oscillatory trains.

Four-dimensional system with torus attractor birth via saddle-node bifurcation of limit cycles in context of family of blue sky catastrophes

A new four-dimensional model with quasi-periodic dynamics is suggested. The torus attractor originates via the saddle-node bifurcation, which may be regarded as a member of a bifurcation family embracing different types of blue sky catastrophes. Also the torus birth through the Neimark-Sacker bifurcation occurs in some other region of the parameter space.   Download full version

Uniformly hyperbolic attractor in a system based on coupled oscillators with «figure-eight» separatrix

A new autonomous system with chaotic dynamics corresponding to Smale–Williams attractor in Poincare map is introduced. The system is constructed on the basis of the model with «figure-eight» separatrix on the phase plane discussed in former times by Y.I. Neimark. Our system is composed of two Neimark subsystems with generalized coordinates x and y. It is described by the equations with additional terms due to which the system becomes self-oscillating.

Simple electronic chaos generators and their circuit simulation

Topic and aim. The aim of the work is to review circuits of chaos generators, those described in the literature and some original ones, in a unified style basing on circuit simulations with the NI Multisim package, which makes the comparison of the various devices apparent. Investigated models.


If we allow non-smooth or discontinuous functions in definition of an evolution operator for dynamical systems, then situations of quasi-hyperbolic chaotic dynamics often occur like, for example, on attractors in model Lozi map and in Belykh map.
