1 hour (actually 50 minutes)
In this lecture, I will discuss a class of multidimensional maps with one nonlinearity, often called discrete-time Lurie systems. In the 2-D case, this class includes Lozi map and Belykh map. I will derive rigorous conditions for the multidimensional maps to have a generalized hyperbolic attractor in the sense of Bunimovich-Pesin. Then, I will show how these chaotic maps can be embedded into the flow, and I will give specific examples of three-dimensional piece-wise linear ODEs, generating this class of hyperbolic attractors.
