An optimized box-assisted algorithm for fractal dimensions
Abstract We present an optimized algorithm for estimating the correlation dimension of an attractor based on very long time sequences. The main idea is to use a mesh in order to count only near
The infinite number of generalized dimensions of fractals and strange attractors
Abstract We show that fractals in general and strange attractors in particular are characterized by an infinite number of generalized dimensions Dq, q > 0. To this aim we develop a rescaling
Measuring the Strangeness of Strange Attractors
We study the correlation exponent v introduced recently as a characteristic measure of strange attractors which allows one to distinguish between deterministic chaos and random noise. The exponent v
How to calculate the fractal dimension of a complex network: the box covering algorithm
Covering a network with the minimum possible number of boxes can reveal interesting features for the network structure, especially in terms of self-similar or fractal characteristics. Considerable
Consistency of the Takens estimator for the correlation dimension
Motivated by the problem of estimating the fractal dimension of a strange attractor, we prove weak consistency of U-statistics for stationary ergodic and mixing sequences when the kernel function is
Generalized dimensions of strange attractors
Abstract It is pointed out that there exists an infinity of generalized dimensions for strange attractors, related to the order-q Renyi entropies. They are monotonically decreasing with q. For q = 0,
Fractal and multifractal analysis: A review
The aim of this review is to explain and to categorize the various algorithms into groups and their application in the field of medical signal analysis.
A comparison of correlation and Lyapunov dimensions
This paper investigates the relation between the correlation ( D2) and the Kaplan–Yorke dimension (DKY) of three-dimensional chaotic flows. Besides the Kaplan–Yorke dimension, a new Lyapunov
Fundamental limitations for estimating dimensions and Lyapunov exponents in dynamical systems
We show that values of the correlation dimension estimated over a decade from the Grassberger-Procaccia algorithm cannot exceed the value 2 log10N if N is the number of points in the time series.
Dimension of weather and climate attractors
A PROCEDURE for estimating the correlation dimension of the attractor of a dynamical system1 has been applied to a number of data sets that are representative of weather or climate variations.
