Li Attractor
This differential system found by Dequan Li in 2008 is the result of a research about the scrollness of attractors and is the first one with smooth quadratic terms that produces three scrolls^{1}. The system is derived from the Lorenz system by generalizing it to a “fuzzy” version which was then simplified.

Differential system:
\[\dot{x} = a\, (y  x) + d\, x\, z\] \[\dot{y} = k\, x + f\, y  x\, z\] \[\dot{z} =  e\, x^2 + x\, y + c\, z\]Constants:
\[a = 40\] \[d = 0.16\] \[k = 55\] \[f = 20\] \[e = 0.65\] \[c = 11/6\]Stereographic Animation
