title = "Introduction to Transient Chaos",

abstract = "In numerical or experimental investigations one never has infinitely long time intervals at one{\textquoteright}s disposal. In fact, what is needed for the observation of chaos is a well-defined separation of time scales. Let t 0 denote the internal characteristic time of the system. In continuous-time problems, t 0 can be the average turnover time of trajectories on a Poincar{\'e} map in the phase space. In a driven system, it is the driving period. In discrete-time dynamics, t 0 can be the time step itself.",
