CHAOS is a C‐based program on SUN workstations, designed for studying nonlinear dynamics. It furnishes easy access to graphical and numerical procedures through the SUN windowing system. Among the graphical tools of CHAOS are the drawing of basins, basin boundaries, bifurcation diagrams, unstable manifolds, and point sets. The program can plot in 2D and 3D as well as on the surface of a cylinder, sphere, or torus. On the numerical side, CHAOS can compute fractal and correlation dimensions, Lyapunov exponents, Poincaré maps, power spectra, and periodic orbits. The program allows for the quick and easy addition of new systems of equations.
