Co-existence of chaos and stable periodic orbits in a simple discrete neural network. (English) Zbl 1098.37069

Summary: We show that a simple discrete network of two identical neurons can demonstrate chaotic behavior near the origin. This is complementary to the results due to J. Wu and R. Zhang [Discrete Contin. Dyn. Syst., Ser. B 4, 851-863 (2004; Zbl 1115.92003)], where it was shown that the same system can have a large capacity of stable periodic orbits in a region away from the origin.
