A recent conjecture in this Journal, concerning the existence of spiral stability phases in Hartley’s oscillator, is corroborated amply. We report numerically computed stability phase diagrams indicating precisely where spirals of periodicity and chaos may be found in several control planes of the system. In addition, we describe some remarkable parameter loops in control space which allow one to trace identical dynamical behaviors by tuning totally independent parameters.
