Abstract: The attractor associated with a system of nonlinear differential-delay equations, arising from the Wu-Liu metal cutting model, is shown to have a noninteger pointwise dimension and positive metric entropy. Projections of the attractor onto a two-dimensional plane substantiate the existence of complex dynamics. The result suggests that certain regenerative chatter states may be chaotic.
