A cell dynamic system model for deterministic chaos enables precise quantification of the round-off error growth, i.e., deterministic chaos in digital computer realizations of mathematical models of continuum dynamical systems. The model predicts the following: a) The phase space trajectory (strange attractor) when resolved as a function of the computer accuracy has intrinsic logarithmic spiral curvature with the quasiperiodic Penrose tiling pattern for the internal structure. b) The universal constant for deterministic chaos is identified as the steady-state fractional round-off-error k for each computational step.
