Rabinovich-Fabrikant Equation

The 3-D Map

$\displaystyle \dot x$ $\textstyle =$ $\displaystyle y(z-1+x^2)+\gamma x$  
$\displaystyle \dot y$ $\textstyle =$ $\displaystyle x(3z+1-x^2)+\gamma y$  
$\displaystyle \dot z$ $\textstyle =$ $\displaystyle -2z(\alpha+xy)$  

(Rabinovich and Fabrikant 1979). The parameters are most commonly taken as $\gamma=0.87$ and $\alpha=1.1$. It has a Correlation Exponent of $2.19\pm 0.01$.
