The quantum mechanical model of a dissipative system that is chaotic in its classical limit is solved numerically. The system is nonlinear optical second harmonic generation, and the model is the quantum optical master equation. The steady‐state of the master equation is found and compared with the classical chaotic attractor. Computational methods appropriate for vector processors and for the connection machine are described.
