Many of the nonlinear high-dimensional systems have hyperchaotic attractors
. Typical trajectory on such attractors is characterized by at least two po
sitive Lyapunov exponents. We provide numerical evidence that chaos-hyperch
aos transition in six-dimensional dynamical system given by flow can be cha
racterized by the set of infinite number of unstable periodic orbits embedd
ed in the attractor as it was previously shown for the case of two coupled
discrete maps. (C) 2001 Elsevier Science B.V. All rights reserved.
