The delayed Lorenz system is as follows: (Bifurcation parameter as $\tau$)

$$\begin{align*} D^\alpha x_1(t) = & a_1(x_2(t-\tau)-x_1(t)) \\ D^\alpha x_2(t) = & a_2x_1(t)-x_2(t)-x_1(t)x_3(t) \\ D^\alpha x_3(t) = &-a_3x_3(t-\tau)+\frac{1}{2}(x_1(t)x_2(t)) \end{align*}$$

  • $\begingroup$ If you are looking for a numerical solution to this, you to need to specify the values of a's? It seems that \alpha is a fractional derivative parameter, so again you need to assign a certain value to it. $\endgroup$ – zhk Mar 20 '16 at 8:56

    $\begingroup$ This question seems incomplete. It states a system of equations, but does not tell what kind of results are wanted. Please supply more information. Also, give the values for constants in the main post, not in a comment. $\endgroup$ – m_goldberg Mar 20 '16 at 12:57

Well, to be honest, you did not provide any information as also mentioned by @m_goldberg. Any ways, I choose random initial conditions and a random value for the delay tau = 1.

a1 = 10; a2 = 28; a3 = 8/3; alpha = 1; \[Tau] = 1;

sol = First[
   NDSolve[{x1'[t] == a1*(x2[t - \[Tau]] - x1[t]), 
     x1[t /; t <= 0] == 3,
     x2'[t] == a2*x1[t] - x2[t] - x1[t]*x3[t], x2[t /; t <= 0] == 6,
     x3'[t] == -a3*x3[t - \[Tau]] + 1/2*x1[t]*x2[t], 
     x3[t /; t <= 0] == 3}, {x1, x2, x3}, {t, 0, 20}]];

Plot[Evaluate[{x1[t], x2[t], x3[t]} /. sol], {t, 0, 200}, 
 PlotStyle -> {Thick}, Frame -> True]

enter image description here

Note: Next time provide complete information, not just a bunch of equations.

Addition (Space curve for:{x1[t],x2[t],x3[t]})
