<p>It is shown that, for analytic functions f, systems of the form z̈=f(z*,ż) and z̈=f(z)cannot produce chaos; and that systems of the form z̈=f(z* , ż *) and z̈=f(z,z*) are conservative. Eight simple chaotic systems of the form z̈=f(z, z*) with quadratic and cubic polynomial f(z, z*) are given. Lyapunov spectra are calculated, and the systems' phase space trajectories are displayed. For each system, a Hamiltonian is given, if one exists. © World Scientific Publishing Company.</p>
