Abstract: We present a novel class of functions that can describe the stable and unstable manifolds of the Hénon map. We propose an algorithm to construct these functions by using the Borel-Laplace transform. Neither linearization nor perturbation is applied in the construction, and the obtained functions are exact solutions of the Hénon map. We also show that it is possible to depict the chaotic attractor of the map by using one of these functions without explicitly using the properties of the attractor.
Keywords: Borel-Laplace transform, asymptotic expansion, difference equation, Hénon map.
