Generates a 2-dimensional time series using the Henon map.

1 2 3 |

`start` |
A 2-dimensional vector indicating the starting values for the x and y Henon coordinates. If the starting point is not specified, it is generated randomly. |

`a` |
The |

`b` |
The |

`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 Henon system is shown. |

The Henon map is defined as follows:

*x[n] = 1 - a*x[n - 1]^2 +
y[n - 1]*

*y[n] = b*x[n -
1].*

The default selection for both *a* and *b*
parameters (*a*=1.4 and *b*=0.3) is known to
produce a deterministic chaotic time series.

A list with two vectors named *x* and *y*
containing the x-components and the y-components of the
Henon map, respectively.

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