Abstract
IN THIS EFFORT WE PROPOSE TO APPLY CERTAIN RECENTLY DEVELOPED ALGORITHMS TO THE PROBLEM OF CHARACTERIZING STRANGE ATTRACTORS RECONSTRUCTED FROM ACOUSTIC TIME SERIES DATA. THESE ALGORITHMS ARE NOW IN RELATIVELY COMMON USE IN EXPERIMENTAL DATA ANALYSIS OF CHAOTIC SYSTEMS AND HAVE ENJOYED REASONABLE SUCCESS AGAINST REAL WORLD DATA. IN PARTICULAR, WE PROPOSE TO USE GENERALIZED CORRELATION INTEGRALS TO MEASURE THE HAUSDORFF (FRACTAL) DIMENSION OF THE ATTRACTOR, TO DISTINGUISH BETWEEN DETERMINISTIC CHAOS AND WHITE NOISE, AND TO DISPLAY A SPECTRUM OF DIMENSIONS OF ATTRACTORS IN THE DATA SETS.
