Chaos, entropy and a generalized extension principle. (English) Zbl 0827.58037

Summary: We show a relationship between a very simple criterion, positive topological entropy and Li-Yorke chaos. A general definition of fuzzification and level set, based on \(t\)-norms/conorms and their diagonal functions, is introduced. The chaos theorem of Benhabib and Day for set valued mappings is considerably strengthened and generalised.
