Media Hunt # – Rossler Attractor

Similar to the Lorenz attractor, the Rossler attractor models three non-linear differential equations that demonstrate chaotic behavior. The attractor, however, still has a form that involves symmetry and follows a certain pattern. The equations were only theoretical and did not have a specific application, but it was later found that they helped in studying chemical reactions (more specifically in modeling the equilibrium). The graph begins with a spiral close to one plane (and around a certain point), and then begins to rise and twist in the direction orthogonal to that original plane. The chaos occurs when the constants are set to a = 0.2, b = 0.2, and c = 5.7, but other values can produce similar chaotic results.
