Ahstract--A pair of coupled quadratic difference equations with randomly chosen coefficients is repeatedly iterated by computer to produce a two-dimensional map. The map is tested for stability and sensitivity to initial conditions. The process is repeated until a chaotic solution is found. In this way a computer can generate a large collection of strange attractors that are all different, and most of which have considerable aesthetic appeal. A simple computer program and examples of its output… CONTINUE READING
