This toolbox contains the functions which can be used to simulate some of the well-known fractional order chaotic systems, such as:
- Chen's system,
- Arneodo's system,
- Genesio-Tesi's system,
- Lorenz's system,
- Newton-Leipnik's system,
- Rossler's system,
- Lotka-Volterra system,
- Duffing's system,
- Van der Pol's oscillator,
- Volta's system,
- Lu's system,
- Liu's system,
- Chua's systems,
- Financial system,
- 3 cells CNN.
The functions numerically compute a solution of the fractional nonlinear differential equations, which describe the chaotic system. Each function returns the state trajectory (attractor) for total simulation time.

Really it is a nice contribution, thank you for your share!


Very good submission, i am very interested by your works about fractional order systems. I have some preoccupations to plot the bifurcation diagrams in chaos systems using Fractional order.
An example could help me to solve my problem.
best regard!!!!


perfect,exactly what i needed,thank you for your selfless contribution 。

Thank you for your unselfish dedication!


An excellent contribution. Thank you!


Hi I really appreciate your toolbox. I have a question. Does the numerical technique you have used in your code has a name? I mean the way you approximate the systems with the fractional derivatives has a name?. Thanks
