When chaotic systems are used in different practical applications, such as chaotic secure communication and chaotic pseudorandom sequence generators, a large number of chaotic systems are strongly required. However, for a lack of a systematic construction theory, the construction of chaotic systems mainly depends on the exhaustive search of systematic parameters or initial values, especially for a class of dynamical systems with hidden chaotic attractors. In this paper, a class of quadratic polynomial chaotic maps is studied, and a general method for constructing quadratic polynomial chaotic maps is proposed. The proposed polynomial chaotic maps satisfy the Li–Yorke definition of chaos. This method can accurately control the amplitude of chaotic time series. Through the existence and stability analysis of fixed points, we proved that such class quadratic polynomial maps cannot have hidden chaotic attractors. View Full-Text
