Abstract : It has been shown both theoretically and experimentally that it is possible to control the symbolic dynamics of a chaotic system using small perturbations. We show a method of very rapidly targeting a region of width e near a desired state point on a one-dimensional map using control of symbolic dynamics; this method demonstrates that controlling symbolic dynamics provides an efficient algorithm for targeting.
