As a system parameter is varied, sudden and qualitative changes in the chaotic attractor can occur, the so-called crises [292, 293]. These qualitative changes can be seen in bifurcation diagrams where one coordinate, say x , of the attractor is plotted versus a system parameter, as shown in Fig. 3.1. Sudden shrinkage or enlargements of the set of x values are visible at several parameter values, indicating the complexity of crisis events in a typical dynamical system.
