The Rossler Chaotic Attractor

Thanks to
for this example of chaos, and the transition to chaos. "After running the default settings Bossel describes A=0.2, B=0.2, Initial Values X=0 Y=2 and Z=0 and varying C=2,3,4,5 shows period doubling and transition to chaotic behavior."

We're looking into environmental applications in our course, and how dramatically dynamics can change, based on a small change in parameters. Climate change "suffers" this chaotic behavior, we fear, and we're going to be "taken by surprise" when the dynamics changes on us suddenly....
