hi people, ive been looking into Chaos theory and would like to build an experiment to produce a Lorenz attractor graph. is this possible? does the water wheel produce the butterfly wings graph? alot of the articles on the net say the same thing so i have given up there.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

im reading through nonlinear dynamics and Chaos-Strogatz and Chaos-Gleick. they say the graphs are produced from Lorenz convection current equations on a computer simulation. this is why im wondering how to produce them in a lab experiment.

many thanks
