They cover general functional analytic setup and an example that forces chaos, validated numerics for equilibria of analytic vector fields: invariant manifolds and connecting orbits, continuation of solutions and studying delay differential equations with rigorous numerics, computer-assisted bifurcation diagram validation and applications in materials science, dynamics and chaos for maps and the Conley index, and rigorous computational dynamics in the context of unknown nonlinearities.
To better understand how the transition to chaos happens, one may consider a so-called bifurcation diagram. Figure 6 shows, for every value of r, the corresponding set of points that are reached after 1,000 iterations.

With reference to the bifurcation diagram of Figure 5 the classical forward or backward continuation of parameter b is obtained with the following initial conditions [x.sub.1](0) = 3; [x.sub.2](0) = [x.sub.3](0) = [x.sub.4](0) = [x.sub.5](0) = 0 and [x.sub.1](0) = 1; [x.sub.2](0) = [x.sub.3](0) = [x.sub.4](0) = [x.sub.5](0) = 0.

Caption: Figure 2: (a) The bifurcation diagram for forward direction ([[beta].sub.1] = 0.1961, [[beta].sub.2] = 0.0101); (b) the bifurcation diagram for backward direction ([[beta].sub.1] = 0.1961, [[beta].sub.2] = 0.4); cross mark denotes stable equilibrium and dot mark denotes unstable equilibrium.
