A fundamental observation in nonlinear dynamics is that the asymptotic chaotic invariant sets in many high-dimensional systems are low-dimensional. We argue that such a behavior is typically associated with chaos synchronism. Numerical support using coupled chaotic systems including a class derived from a nonlinear partial differential equation is provided. (C) 2002 Elsevier Science Ltd. All rights reserved.
