Invisible Parts of Attractors

This paper deals with the attractors of generic dynamical systems. We introduce the notion of epsilon-invisible set, which is an open set in which almost all orbits spend on average a fraction of time no greater than epsilon. For extraordinarily small values of epsilon (say, smaller than 2^(-100)), these are areas of the phase space which an observer virtually never sees when following a generic orbit. 

We construct an open set in the space of all dynamical systems which have an epsilon-invisible set that includes parts of attractors of size comparable to the entire attractor of the system, for extraordinarily small values of epsilon. The open set consists of C^1 perturbations of a particular skew product over the Smale-Williams solenoid. Thus for all such perturbations, a sizable portion of the attractor is almost never visited by generic orbits and practically never seen by the observer.
