This study proposes a pseudorandom number generator of q -Gaussian random variables for a range of q values, -∞ <; q <; 3, based on deterministic chaotic map dynamics. Our method consists of chaotic maps on the unit circle and map dynamics based on the piecewise linear map. We perform the q-Gaussian random number generator for several values of q and conduct both Kolmogorov-Smirnov (KS) and Anderson-Darling (AD) tests. The q-Gaussian samples generated by our proposed method pass the KS test at…

Dynamic Analysis of Digital Chaotic Maps via State-Mapping Networks

Understanding the network structure of a chaotic map’s SMN in digital computers can facilitate counteracting the undesirable degeneration of chaotic dynamics in finite-precision domains, also helping to classify and improve the randomness of pseudo-random number sequences generated by iterating the chaotic maps.

Network analysis of the state space of chaotic map in digital domain

Some dynamical properties of chaotic maps in fixed-point arithmetic are disclosed by studying its corresponding state network, where every possible value is considered as a node and every possible mapping relation between a pair of nodes works as a directed edge.

Dynamic analysis of chaotic maps as complex networks in the digital domain

Understanding the network structure of SMN of a chaotic map in the digital computers can facilitate counteracting the undesirable dynamics degenerations of digital chaotic maps in finite-precision domains, helping also classify and improve the randomness of pseudo-random number sequences generated by iterating chaotic maps.

Arnold Cat Map and Sinai as Chaotic Numbers Generators in Evolutionary Algorithms

Chaos attractors Arnold Cat Map and Sinai are used as chaotic numbers generators and their influence on the cost functions convergence’s speed is investigated to assess which attractor is better from the view of cost function convergence's speed.

The multiddimensional Gauss iterated map uses more control parameters as compared to multidimensional logistic map, which enhances the data security, and the Gauss variations take lesser time for encryption and decryption as comparedto the logistic variations.
