Description

Generates a 1-dimensional time series using the Gauss map

Usage

3
  gaussMap(a = 4.9, b = -0.58,
    start = runif(1, min = -0.5, max = 0.5),
    n.sample = 5000, n.transient = 500, do.plot = TRUE)

Arguments

start

A numeric value indicating the starting value for the time series. If the starting point is not specified, it is generated randomly.

a

The a parameter. Default: 4.9

b

The b parameter. Default: -0.58

n.sample

Length of the generated time series. Default: 5000 samples.

n.transient

Number of transient samples that will be discarded. Default: 500 samples.

do.plot

Logical value. If TRUE (default value), a plot of the generated Gauss system is shown.

Details

The Gauss map is defined as follows:

x[n+1] = exp(-a*(x[n])^2) + b

The default selection for both a and b parameters is known to produce a deterministic chaotic time series.

Value

A vector containing the values of the time series that has been generated.

Note

Some initial values may lead to an unstable system that will tend to infinity.
