The Lorenz Attractor

Invariant sets and limit sets are similar to the attractor concept. The expression has a somewhat cloudy history. Other MathWorks country sites are not optimized for visits from your location. InEdward Lorenz developed a simplified mathematical model for atmospheric convection. As with other chaotic systems the Lorenz system is sensitive to the initial conditions, two initial states no matter how close will diverge, usually sooner rather than later.

Two butterflies that are arbitrarily close to each other but not at exactly the same position, will diverge after a number of times steps, making it impossible to predict the position of any butterfly after many time steps. Equations or systems that are nonlinear can give rise to a richer variety of behavior than can linear systems.

In physical systemsthe n dimensions may be, for example, two or three positional coordinates stractor each of one or more physical entities; in economic systemsthey may be separate variables such as the inflation rate and the unemployment rate.


Notice the two “wings” of the butterfly; these correspond to two different sets of physical behavior of the system.

Lorenz system

A point on this graph represents a particular physical state, and the blue curve is the path followed by such a point during a finite period of time. This is equivalent to the difference between stable and unstable equilibria.

As a way to quantify the different behaviors, I chose to focus on the frequency with which the model switched states, from one “wing” to the other.

The Lorenz attractor visualization. By running a series of simulations with different parameters, I arrived at the following set of results: If two of these frequencies form an irrational fraction i.

The three axes are each mapped to a different instrument. An attractor is called strange if it has a fractal structure. At the critical value, both equilibrium points lose stability through a Hopf bifurcation.

Not to be confused with Lorenz curve or Lorentz distribution. The Lorenz equations are derived from the Oberbeck-Boussinesq approximation to the equations describing fluid circulation in a shallow layer lorrenz fluid, heated uniformly from below and cooled uniformly from above.

Attractors can take on many other geometric shapes phase space subsets. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. This article includes a list of referencesbut its sources remain unclear because it has insufficient inline citations. The Lorenz system dw a system of ordinary differential equations first studied by Edward Lorenz.

Journal of Computer and Systems Sciences International. Its Hausdorff dimension is estimated to be 2. If the evolving variable is two- or three-dimensional, the attractor of the dynamic process can be represented geometrically in two or three dimensions, as for example in the three-dimensional case depicted to the right.

An invariant set is a set that evolves to itself under the dynamics. Examples include the swings of a pendulum clockand the heartbeat while resting. The Lorenz oscillator is a 3-dimensional dynamical system that exhibits chaotic flow, noted for its lemniscate shape. The state variables are x, y, and z.

The series does not form limit cycles nor does it ever reach a steady state. For example, if the bowl containing a rolling marble was inverted and the marble was porenz on top of the bowl, the center bottom now top of the bowl is a fixed state, but not an attractor.

Press the “Small cube” button! Because of the dissipation due to air resistance, the point x 0 is also an attractor.
