The Lorenz Model - Demo 3

Time series

It is also useful to plot the "time series" i.e. the plot of single variables as a function of time.

Here is X(t)

And here is Z(t)

The variable Z(t) corresponds to the heat flow convected by the fluid, and is easily measured experimentally.

The "randomness" or aperiodic nature of the solution is evident.
