Dynamics of a discrete system with the operator of evolution given by an implicit function: from the Mandelbrot map to a unitary map
2017, Vol. 13, No. 3, pp. 331-348
An abstract discrete time dynamical system, given by an implicit function of the values of a variable at successive moments of time, is presented. The dynamics of this system is defined ambiguously both in reverse and forward time. An example of a system of such type is described in the works of Bullett, Osbaldestin and Percival [Physica D, 1986, vol. 19, pp. 290–300; Nonlinearity, 1988, vol. 1, pp. 27–50]; it demonstrates some features of the behavior of Hamiltonian systems. The map under study allows a smooth transition from the case of the explicitly defined evolution operator to an implicit one and, further, to the “conservative” limit, corresponding to the symmetric evolution operator satisfying the unitarity condition. Being created on the basis of the complex Mandelbrot map, it demonstrates the transformation of the phenomena of complex analytical dynamics to “conservative” phenomena and allows us to identify the relationship between them.
