1980 The Shimizu-Morioka system

Christophe LETELLIER
T. Shimizu & N. Morioka

A system algebraically simpler than the Lorenz system has been proposed by Shimizu & Morioka [1].

- The system

The set of three ordinary differential equations known as the "Shimizu & Morioka" system reads as :

      \dot{x}=y \\[0.1cm]
      \dot{y}=x-\mu y-xz \\[0.1cm]
      \dot{z}=-\alpha z+x^2
  \right.  \, .
This system has one fixed point, F_0, located at the origin of the phase space and two fixed pointsF_\pm located at (\pm \sqrt{\alpha},0,1). For a wide range of parameter values, including those corresponding to a chaotic attractor, F_0 is a saddle and F_\pm are two saddle-foci. This system produces a ``Lorenz-like’’ chaotic attractor with parameter values  \mu=0.81 and  \alpha=0.375 (Fig. 1).

Replacing the \alpha with 0.191450 changes the attractor for a ``Burke and Shaw-like’’ attractor (Fig. 2).
