Analysis of a new quadratic 3D chaotic attractor. (English) Zbl 1383.34065

Summary: A new three-dimensional chaotic system is introduced. Basic properties of this system show that its corresponding attractor is topologically different from some well-known systems. Next, detailed information on dynamic of this system is obtained numerically by means of Lyapunov exponents spectrum, bifurcation diagrams, and 0-1 chaos indicator test. We finally prove existence of this chaotic attractor theoretically using Shil’nikov theorem and undetermined coefficient method.
