Abstract

High-dimensional chaos has been an area of growing recent investigation. The questions of how dynamical systems become high-dimensionally chaotic with multiple positive Lyapunov exponents, and what the characteristic features associated with the transition are, remain less investigated. In this paper, we present one possible route to high-dimensional chaos. By this route, a subsystem becomes chaotic with one positive Lyapunov exponent via one of the known routes to low-dimensional. chaos, after which the complementary subsystem becomes chaotic, leading to additional positive Lyapunov exponents for the whole system. A characteristic feature of this route is that the additional Lyapunov exponents pass through zero smoothly. As a consequence, the fractal dimension of the chaotic attractor changes continuously through the transition, in contrast to the transition to low-dimensional chaos at which the fractal dimension changes abruptly. We present a heuristic theory and numerical examples to illustrate this route to high-dimensional chaos.
