This chapter introduces the basic concepts of dynamical systems theory and several basic mathematical methods for controlling chaos. The main goal of this chapter is to provide an introduction to and a summary of the theory of dynamical systems, with particular emphasis on fractal theory, chaos theory, and chaos control. We first define what is meant by a dynamical system, then we define an attractor, and then the concept of the fractal dimension of a geometrical object. We also define the Lyapunov exponents as a measure of the chaotic behavior of a dynamical system. On the other hand, the fractal dimension can be used to classify geometrical objects because it measures the complexity of an object. The chapter also describes mathematical methods for controlling chaos in dynamic systems. These methods can be used to control a real dynamic system; however, due to efficiency and accuracy requirements we were forced to use fuzzy logic to model the uncertainty, which is present when numerical simulations are performed. We also describe in this chapter a new theory of chaos using fuzzy logic techniques. Chaotic behavior in nonlinear dynamical systems is very difficult to detect and control. Part of the problem is that mathematical results for chaos are difficult to use in many cases, and even if one could use them there is an underlying uncertainty in the accuracy of the numerical simulations of the dynamical systems. For this reason, we can model the uncertainty of detecting the range of values where chaos occurs, using fuzzy set theory. Using fuzzy sets, we can build a theory of fuzzy chaos, where we can use fuzzy sets to describe the behaviors of a system. We illustrate our approach with two cases: Chua’s circuit and Duffing’s oscillator.
