Abstract: We give simple conditions that guarantee, for strongly dissipative maps, the existence of strange attractors with a single direction of instability and certain controlled behaviors. Only the d= 2 case is treated in this paper, although our approach is by no means limited to two phase-dimensions. We develop a dynamical picture for the attractors in this class, proving they have many of the statistical properties associated with chaos: positive Lyapunov exponents, existence of SRB… 
Strange attractors and their periodic repetition.
The Duffing system is used to illustrate that the overall dynamical behavior of the system, including strange attractors, is organized in the form of an asymptotic invariant pattern as the magnitude of the applied periodic forcing approaches zero.
Dynamical profile of a class of rank-one attractors
Abstract This paper contains results on the geometric and ergodic properties of a class of strange attractors introduced by Wang and Young [Towards a theory of rank one attractors. Ann. of Math. (2)
Ergodic Theory and Dynamical Systems
For strongly dissipative Hénon maps at the first bifurcation parameter where the uniform hyperbolicity is destroyed by the formation of tangencies inside the limit set, we establish a thermodynamic

For a strongly dissipative Hénon-like map at the first bifurcation parameter at which the uniform hyperbolicity is destroyed by the formation of tangencies inside the limit set, we effect a
Large deviations in non-uniformly hyperbolic dynamical systems
Abstract We prove large deviation principles for ergodic averages of dynamical systems admitting Markov tower extensions with exponential return times. Our main technical result from which a number
New Strange Attractors for Discrete Dynamical Systems
A discrete dynamical system in Euclidean m-space generated by the iterates of an asymptotically zero map f , satisfying |f(x)| → 0 as |x| → ∞, must have a compact global attracting set A. The
"Large" strange attractors in the unfolding of a heteroclinic attractor
We present a mechanism for the emergence of strange attractors in a one-parameter family of differential equations defined on a 3-dimensional sphere. When the parameter is zero, its flow exhibits an


Strange attractors in saddle-node cycles: prevalence and globality
Abstract We consider parametrized families of diffeomorphisms bifurcating through the creation of critical saddle-node cycles. We show that they always exhibit Hénon-like strange attractors for a set
Strange attractors in higher dimensions
We consider generic one-parameter families of diffeomorphisms on a manifold of arbitrary dimension, unfolding a homoclinic tangency associated to a sectionally dissipative saddle point (the product
Ergodic Theory of Differentiable Dynamical Systems
These notes are about the dynamics of systems with hyperbolic properties. The setting for the first half consists of a pair (f, µ), where f is a diffeomorphism of a Riemannian manifold and µ is an
Abundance of strange attractors
In 1976 [He] H~non performed a numerical study of the family of diffeomorphisms of the plane ha,b(X, y)=(1-ax2+y, bx) and detected for parameter values a=l.4, b=0.3, what seemed to be a non-trivial

Abstract The main result of this paper is a construction of geometric Lorenz attractors (as axiomatically defined by J. Guckenheimer) by means of an Ω-explosion. The unperturbed vector field on ℝ3 is
Homoclinic bifurcation to a transitive attractor of Lorenz type
The author proves that a cubic differential equation in three dimensions has a transitive attractor similar to that of the geometric model of the Lorenz equations. In fact, what is proved is that
This paper is about the ergodic theory of attractors and conservative dynamical systems with hyperbolic properties on large parts (though not necessarily all) of their phase spaces. The main results
Towards a Kneading Theory for Lozi Mappings. II: Monotonicity of the Topological Entropy and Hausdorff Dimension of Attractors
Abstract: We construct a kneading theory à la Milnor–Thurston for Lozi mappings (piecewise affine homeomorphisms of the plane). In the first article a two-dimensional analogue of the kneading
