Definition
xn+1 = sin(a yn) + c cos(a xn)
yn+1 = sin(b xn) + d cos(b yn)
where a, b, c, d are variabies that define each attractor.


a = -1.4, b = 1.6, c = 1.0, d = 0.7



a = 1.6, b = -0.6, c = -1.2, d = 1.6



a = 1.7, b = 1.7, c = 0.6, d = 1.2



a = 1.5, b = -1.8, c = 1.6, d = 0.9



a = -1.7, b = 1.3, c = -0.1, d = -1.2



a = -1.7, b = 1.8, c = -1.9, d = -0.4



a = -1.8, b = -2.0, c = -0.5, d = -0.9
