The Necessity for a Time Local Dimension in Systems with Time Varying Attractors
Author(s): K. Saermark , Yosef Ashkenazy , Jacob Levitan

Subject(s): CX.00

Category: None


We show that a simple non-linear system of ordinary differential equations may possess a time varying attractor dimension. This indicates that it is infeasible to characterize EEG and MEG time series with a single time global dimension. We suggest another measure for the description of non-stationary attractors.
