# #6 - The Dequan Li Attractor

Published on

A new 3D autonomous dynamical system proposed by Dequan Li *(Physics
Letters A, 372, 387, 2008.)* produces a chaotic attractor whose global topological
properties are unusual. The attractor has a rotation symmetry and only a single real
fixed point for the parameters used in his study. The symmetric, complex pair of fixed
points cannot be ignored: they play a major role in organizing the motion on a surface
of peculiar toroidal type. #1

const a = 40.0;

const next = (x,y,z) => {
const dx = a * (y - x) + c * x * z;;
const dy = e * x + f * y - x * z;
const dz = b * z + x * y - d * x * x;
