Lorenz Attractor

Application ID: 16635

A Lorenz attractor can be described by a system of ordinary differential equations: the Lorenz system. In the early 1960s, Lorenz discovered the chaotic behavior of this system for certain parameter values and initial conditions. The solution, when plotted as a phase space, resembles the figure eight.

This example uses the Dormand-Prince explicit method for solving the ODEs and a Point Trajectories plot for visualizing the Lorenz attractor.

This model example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:
