Some Observations on State Space Grids and Closely Related Nonlinear Methods

Stephen J. Guastello, Marquette University, Milwaukee, WI

Abstract: State space grids are the most frequently used form of nonlinear analysis in this special issue. This article elaborates on hypotheses one can test using them, the role of entropy constructs, and expansions to experimental designs and analysis that one can reasonably make to study system stability questions or systems with three or more interacting agents.

Keywords: state space grids, entropy symbolic dynamics, orbital decom-position, attractor
