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.
