On the sighting of unicorns: a variational approach to computing invariant sets in dynamical systems

Chaos: An Interdisciplinary Journal of Nonlinear Science 2017 pepe78/Invariant-Sets-Attractors

We propose to compute approximations to general invariant sets in dynamical systems by minimizing the distance between an appropriately selected finite set of points and its image under the dynamics.
