Sensitive dependence on initial conditions

  title={Sensitive dependence on initial conditions},
  author={Eli Glasner and Benjamin Weiss},
It is shown that the property of sensitive dependence on initial conditions in the sense of Guckenheimer follows from the other two more technical parts of one of the most common recent definitions of chaotic systems. It follows that this definition applies to a broad range of dynamical systems, many of which should not be considered chaotic. We investigate the implications of sensitive dependence on initial conditions and its relation to dynamical properties such as rigidity, ergodicity… 

On Sensitive Dependence on Initial Conditions and Existence of Physical Measure for 3-Flows

After reviewing known results on sensitiveness and also on robustness of attractors together with observations on their proofs, we show that for attractors of three-dimensional flows, robust chaotic

When is a dynamical system mean sensitive?

This article is devoted to studying which conditions imply that a topological dynamical system is mean sensitive and which do not. Among other things, we show that every uniquely ergodic, mixing

Chaotic Properties of Mappings on a Probability Space

Sensitive dependence on initial conditions is widely understood as being the central idea of chaos. We first give sufficient conditions (both topological and ergodic) on an endomorphism to ensure the

Sensitivity and chaos of iterated function systems

The present work is concerned with sensitivity and chaos for iterated function systems (IFSs). First of all, we introduce the concept of S-transitivity for IFSs which is relevant with sensitive

How chaotic are strange non-chaotic attractors?

We show that the classic examples of quasiperiodically forced maps with strange non-chaotic attractors described by Grebogi et al and Herman in the mid-1980s have some chaotic properties. More

Two results on entropy, chaos and independence in symbolic dynamics

We survey the connections between entropy, chaos, and independence in topological dynamics. We present extensions of two classical results placing the following notions in the context of symbolic

Chaotic dynamical systems

In this work, we look at the dynamics of four different spaces, the interval, the unit circle, subshifts of finite type and compact countable sets. We put our emphasis on chaotic dynamical system and

Chaotic iterated function systems

The present work is concerned with chaotic iterated function systems, in a more general case. In this regard, we consider a finite set of relations as the generators of our system. Then we study the

Rigidity in topological dynamics

Abstract By analogy with the ergodic theoretical notion, we introduce notions of rigidity for a minimal flow (X, T) according to the various ways a sequence Tni can tend to the identity

On Devaney's definition of chaos

Chaotic dynamical systems have received a great deal of attention in recent years (see for instance [2], [3]). Although there has been no universally accepted mathematical definition of chaos, the

Sensitive dependence to initial conditions for one dimensional maps

This paper studies the iteration of maps of the interval which have negative Schwarzian derivative and one critical point. The maps in this class are classified up to topological equivalence. The
