It is impossible to obtain chaotic behavior using conventional finite precision calculations on a digital platform. All such realizations are eventually periodic. Also, digital calculations of the periodic orbits are often erroneous due to round-offand truncation errors. Because of these errors, periodic orbits quickly diverge from the true orbit and they end up into one of the few cycles that occur for almost all initial conditions. Hence, digital calculations of chaotic systems do not represent the true orbits of the mathematically defined original system. This discrepancy becomes evident in the simulations of the binary shift chaotic maps like Bernoulli map or tent map. Although these systems are perfectly well defined chaotic systems, their digital realizations always converge to zero. In the literature, there are some studies which replace the least significant zero bits by random bits to overcome this problem.
