Lorenz Equations

  1. May 17, 2005 #1
    As part of my summer job working with one of my professors, I've written a C++ program to do Runge-Kutta of order 4 on a system of 3 equations. I've been playing around with it using the Lorenz equations and using maple to graph the results. I was wondering if anyone could tell me some initial conditions to use to get a metachaotic result (one which starts chaotic but than settles down). I've read that this can be accomplished with sigma=10, r=21, and b=8/3 if the right starting conditions are used, but i don't have a lot of time to play around with the initial conditions. Thanks for any help.
