Abstract

We show that chaotic attractors are rarely found in multistable dissipative systems close to the conservative limit. As we approach this limit, the parameter intervals for the existence of chaotic attractors as well as the volume of their basins of attraction in a bounded region of the state space shrink very rapidly. An important role in the disappearance of these attractors is played by particular points in parameter space, namely, the double crises accompanied by a basin boundary metamorphosis. Scaling relations between successive double crises are presented. Furthermore, along this path of double crises, we obtain scaling laws for the disappearance of chaotic attractors and their basins of attraction.
