I Deterministic chaos in linear systems

  1. May 30, 2018 #1
    I was reading a paper about deterministic chaos, where the author had commented that non-linear systems can be affected by this. My question is whether some linear systems can also have chaotic behavior. It is possible?

    Thank you

    I don’t think so. If you double the input of a linear system you just double the output. You don’t suddenly get extreme sensitivity to parameters.
