In this article, we propose and study an extension of the Chen-Lai algorithm for chaotification of discrete-time dynamical systems. The proposed method is a simple but mathematically rigorous feedback control design method that can gradually make all the Lyapunov exponents of the controlled system strictly positive for any given n-dimensional dynamical system that has a uniformly bounded Jacobian but otherwise could be originally nonchaotic or even asymptotically stable. © World Scientific Publishing Company.
