# How can I calculate the correlation dimension and/or the Lyapunov exponent of a time series using Mathematica

I have a pretty long time series (4000 data points).

How can I calculate the Correlation dimension and/or Lyapunov exponent for such data?

What is the format of the data? Depending on the sort of file it is in you can often simply define datain=Import["/yourdirectory/yourfile.dat"] but you should look at the options for Import which may help. –  Jonathan Shock May 28 '13 at 10:29
