I am little confused about the right place to ask this question but anyway here it goes: How can one convince oneself that (if at all it is true) chaotic attractors always are fractals? Thanks in advance.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

P.S.: Little bit of googling suggested that there are examples of non-strange chaotic attractors for discreet maps, hence my question is ill-posed for maps but what about the continuous dynamical systems?
