Lozi Attractor

The French mathematician René Lozi introduced a piecewise linear version of the Hénon map [1] with applications in secure communications [2]. It is a 2D invertible iterated map that yields a chaotic attractor. Selecting "attractor" shows the iterates of this map with initial value , and selecting "iterations to escape" colors points in the plane based on how long it takes the sequence of iterates with that initial value to escape the region .
