In science:

The correlation dimensions (D2 ) and the largest Lyapunov exponents (λ) are calculated with the familiar algorithms for chaotic attractors in SISs, and the existence of those quantities has been considered as evidence of chaotic dynamics in those natural systems.
Predicting and characterizing data sequences from structure-variable systems
Only when the environment parameters change sufficiently slowly, a theory of SISs can be a well approximate tool to analyze the data sequences from them.
Predicting and characterizing data sequences from structure-variable systems
We emphasize that the developing structure with variable parameters of the logistic map (which is a SVS) including its periodic motion and its period-doubling counterparts can be well predicted with a sophisticated prediction algorithm for SISs.
Predicting and characterizing data sequences from structure-variable systems
As that has been shown above, we do have succeeded in predicting the developing structure of the logistic map shown in Fig. 1 with a 2D prediction algorithm (m=2) for SISs.
Predicting and characterizing data sequences from structure-variable systems
For these SISs from SVS in the variable-parameter space as Eq. 3, there is no unstable periodic orbit in their asymptotic state since the parameter µ always increases.
