Examples of Lorenz-like attractors in Hénon-like maps. (English) Zbl 1331.37040
Summary: We display a gallery of Lorenz-like attractors that emerge in a class of three-dimensional maps. We review the theory of Lorenz-like attractors for diffeomorphisms (as opposed to flows), define various types of such attractors, and find sufficient conditions for three-dimensional Henon-like maps to possess pseudohyperbolic Lorenz-like attractors. The numerically obtained scenarios of the creation and destruction of these attractors are also presented.
