Abstract Under certain conditions, the rate of increase of the statistical entropy of a simple, fully chaotic, conservative system is known to be given by a single number, characteristic of this system, the Kolmogorov–Sinai entropy rate. This connection is here generalized to a simple dissipative system, the logistic map, and especially to the chaos threshold of the latter, the edge of chaos. It is found that, in the edge-of-chaos case, the usual Boltzmann–Gibbs–Shannon entropy is not… Expand

The production of Tsallis entropy in the limit of weak chaos and a new indicator of chaoticity
We study the connection between the appearance of a ‘metastable’ behaviour of weakly chaotic orbits, characterized by a constant rate of increase of the Tsallis q-entropy [C. Tsallis, PossibleExpand
The complexity of the logistic map at the chaos threshold
We apply a generalized version of the Kolmogorov–Sinai entropy, based on a non-extensive form, to analyzing the dynamics of the logistic map at the chaotic threshold, the paradigm of power-lawExpand
Time evolution of thermodynamic entropy for conservative and dissipative chaotic maps
Abstract We consider several low-dimensional chaotic maps started in far-from-equilibrium initial conditions and we study the process of relaxation to equilibrium. In the case of conservative mapsExpand
Generalization of the Kolmogorov–Sinai entropy: logistic-like and generalized cosine maps at the chaos threshold
Abstract We numerically calculate, at the edge of chaos, the time evolution of the nonextensive entropic form S q ≡[1−∑ i =1 W p i q ]/[ q −1] (with S 1 =−∑ i =1 W p i ln p i ) for two families ofExpand
Sensitivity function and entropy increase rates for z-logistic map family at the edge of chaos
It is well known that, for chaotic systems, the production of relevant entropy (Boltzmann–Gibbs) is always linear and the system has strong (exponential) sensitivity to initial conditions. In recentExpand
Entropy Production and Pesin-Like Identity at the Onset of Chaos
Asymptotically entropy of chaotic systems increases linearly and the sensitivity to initial conditions is exponential with time: these two types of behavior are related. Such relationship isExpand
Statistical descriptions of nonlinear systems at the onset of chaos
Ensemble of initial conditions for nonlinear maps can be described in terms of entropy. This ensemble entropy shows an asymptotic linear growth with rate K. The rate K matches the logarithm of theExpand
Numerical study of the oscillatory convergence to the attractor at the edge of chaos

Information and Helical Mechanism of Entropy Increase
The principle of entropy increase is not only the basis of statistical mechanics, but also closely related to the irreversibility of time, the origin of life, chaos and turbulence. In this paper, weExpand
Nonextensivity at the edge of chaos of a new universality class of one-dimensional unimodal dissipative maps
AbstractWe introduce a new universality class of one-dimensional unimodal dissipative maps. The new family, from now on referred to as the (z1, z2)-logarithmic map, corresponds to a generalization ofExpand


Estimation of the Kolmogorov entropy from a chaotic signal
While there has been recently a dramatic growth in new mathematical concepts related to chaotic systems, ' the detailed comparison between models and experimental data has lagged somewhat. AfterExpand
A non extensive approach to the entropy of symbolic sequences
Symbolic sequences with long-range correlations are expected to result in a slow regression to a steady state of entropy increase. However, we prove that also in this case a fast transition to aExpand
Circular-like maps: sensitivity to the initial conditions, multifractality and nonextensivity
Dissipative one-dimensional maps may exhibit special points (e.g., chaos threshold) at which the Lyapunov exponent vanishes. Consistently, the sensitivity to the initial conditions has a power-lawExpand
