Hyperbolic strange attractors of physically realizable systems

A review of studies aimed on revealing or constructing physical systems with hyperbolic strange attractors, like Plykin attractor and Smale–Williams solenoid, is presented. Examples of iterated maps, differential equations, and simple electronic devices with chaotic dynamics associated with such attractors are presented and discussed. A general principle is considered and illustrated basing on manipulation of phases in alternately excited oscillators and time-delay systems.

Hyperbolic chaos in the Bonhoeffer–van der Pol oscillator with additional delayed feedback and periodically modulated excitation parameter

Topic and aim. The aim of the work is to consider an easy-to-implement system demonstrating the Smale–Williams hyperbolic attractor based on the Bonhoeffer–van der Pol oscillator, alternately manifesting a state of activity or suppression due to periodic modulation of the parameter by an external control signal, and supplemented with a delayed feedback circuit. Investigated models. A mathematical model is formulated as a non-autonomous second-order equation with delay. The scheme of the electronic device that implements this type of chaotic behavior is proposed.

Belykh attractor in Zaslavsky map and its transformation under smoothing

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.
