Chaos in a simple identification/counter model

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The development of C3I models is of importance in investigating decision theory as applied to tactical and logistic problems. A recent model due to Meyer can be viewed as a discrete dynamical system in a four-dimensional euclidean space. In this paper, a two-dimensional discrete dynamical system is analyzed retaining several basic features of Meyer's model using the tools of nonlinear dynamics in general, and chaos theory in particular. Such features as attractors and repellers are identified and certain values of the parameters which admit chaotic regimes including strange attractors or repellers are determined. A substanial dynamic characterization of a discrete system of dimension greater than one is achieved.
