Dependence on Parameters

The Lorenz model shows a rich variety of behavior as the parameters a,b,c are changed. Usually b and c are held fixed and a is varied. This corresponds to increasing the nonlinearity, driving the system further away from equilibrium, or in the convection context increasing the temperature difference across the layer of fluid.

Reset the parameters to their default values by quitting and restarting the applet. You might want to set tr an=0 for this investigation.
