Title

M4 - Concentrations of chemical substances in the transition to a chaotic attractor

Description

The coordinates of this image are given by the concentrations of chemical substances. This image shows the transition to a chaotic attractor (“ocean” in the lower part). Here, points are traced which initially lie within a rectangle. The content of the rectangle assumes the shape of “mountains,” which descend further and further, until they get “caught” by the attractor at the bottom.
