WarningAny uncritical application of the methods included in this toolbox can yield to pitfalls. The users of these programmes are urged to inform themselves by the basics of nonlinear dynamics and the problems which can occur therein.
We give no warranties for the results obtained with the toolbox.
The toolbox programmes are based on modern methods of nonlinear data analysis. The following literature is highly recommended to get introduced into nonlinear dynamics, recurrence plots, and related methods and to avoid wrong usage or misinterpretation.
