Kaplan-Yorke Map

$\displaystyle x_{n+1}$ $\textstyle =$ $\displaystyle 2x_n$  
$\displaystyle y_{n+1}$ $\textstyle =$ $\displaystyle \alpha y_n+\cos(4\pi x_n),$  

where $x_n$, $y_n$ are computed mod 1. (Kaplan and Yorke 1979). The Kaplan-Yorke map with $\alpha=0.2$ has Correlation Exponent $1.42\pm 0.02$ (Grassberger Procaccia 1983) and Capacity Dimension 1.43 (Russell et al. 1980).
