Issue: 09

Pages: 184-189


On the basis of the correlation dimension method, in particular, the Grassberger-Procaccia algorithm it is carried out an analysis of the temporal raws of dust concentrations on two points of the Odessa city and calculated the correlation dimension spectrum. It has been proven availability of the chaos. The received data are agreed with the corresponding data on the Lyapunov dimension spectrum, Kalane-York dimension and Kolmogorov entropy.
