Anyone who's interested in chaos and dynamical systems must come along the Lotka-Volterra equations at
some point. And most of the times you find descriptions for it in 2 dimensions, with one predator and one prey
population. But there's more to it as John S. Costello showed in *Synchronisation of Chaos
in a Generalized Lotka-Volterra Atractor*
