Abstract

Unstable dimension variability is a mechanism whereby an invariant set of a dynamical system, like a chaotic attractor or a strange saddle, loses hyperbolicity in a severe way, with serious consequences on the shadowability properties of numerically generated trajectories. In dynamical systems possessing a variable parameter, this phenomenon can be triggered by the bifurcation of an unstable periodic orbit. This Letter aims at discussing the possible types of codimension-one bifurcations leading to unstable dimension variability in a two-dimensional map, presenting illustrative examples and displaying numerical evidences of this fact by computing finite-time Lyapunov exponents.
