Interval-based tracing of strange attractors

Dominique Michelucci, Sebti Foufou

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


The method described here relies on interval arithmetic and graph theory to compute guaranteed coverings of strange attractors like Hénon attractor. It copes with infinite intervals, using either a geometric method or a new directed projective interval arithmetic.
