Chaotic attractors in delayed neural networks. (English) Zbl 0995.92004

Summary: This paper investigates the complex dynamical behavior of delayed neural networks with two neurons with the help of computer simulations. It has been shown that such networks may exhibit chaotic dynamics undergoing a period-doubling bifurcation process. In some parameter domains, interesting phenomena of coexistence of periodic orbits and chaotic attractors have been observed.
