The Kaplan–Yorke map is a discrete-time dynamical system. It is an example of a dynamical system that exhibits chaotic behavior. The Kaplan–Yorke map takes a point (xn, yn ) in the plane and maps it to a new point given by
Due to roundoff error, successive applications of the modulo operator will yield zero after some ten or twenty iterations when implemented as a floating point operation on a computer. It is better to implement the following equivalent algorithm:
where the and are computational integers. It is also best to choose to be a large prime number in order to get many different values of .
Another way to avoid having the modulo operator yield zero after a short number of iterations is
which will still eventually return zero, albeit after many more iterations.
