Abstract Branched manifolds that describe strange attractors in R3 can be enclosed in, and are organized by, canonical bounding tori. Tori of genus g are labeled by a symbol sequence, or “periodic orbit”, of period g-1. We show that the number of distinct canonical bounding tori grows exponentially like N(g) ~ eγ(g-1), with eγ = 3, so that the “bounding tori entropy” is log(3).
