to emphasize the similarity to the familiar Feigenbaum diagram.
Fig. 2. Return map showing each value of xmax versus
the previous value of xmax. The insert shows fractal
structure at a magnification of 104.
Fig. 3. Chaotic time variation of x, v, a, and
for A = 2.107.
Fig. 4. Stereoscopic view of the attractor, which is approximately a
Mobius strip. Also shown is the fixed point at the origin with its stable
and unstable manifold.
GIF animated views of this attractor and its basin of attraction are available.
