A dynamical meaning of fractal dimension
Abstract: When two attractors of a dynamical system have a common basin boundary , small changes in initial conditions which lie near can result in radically different long-term behavior of the trajectory. A quantitative description of this phenomenon is obtained in terms of the fractal dimension of the basin boundary .
