Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Chaotic saddles are nonattracting dynamical invariant sets that can lead to a variety of physical phenomena. We describe the blowout bifurcation of chaotic saddles located in the symmetric invariant manifold of coupled systems and discuss dynamical phenomena associated with this bifurcation.
