chaos in the sense of Li and Yorke; maximal scrambled sets; topological entropy; chaotic functions; scrambled sets
In this note we characterize chaotic functions (in the sense of Li and Yorke) with topological entropy zero in terms of the structure of their maximal scrambled sets. In the interim a description of all maximal scrambled sets of these functions is also found.
