Why it does not work for small values of delay?

This is not really an error but - In the main algorithm, shouldn't T(i) be updated immediately after X(i) is updated? That way x0 would correspond to x(0) and not x(0.1) = x(deltat).

It seems that the time series is not correct when the parameters are fixed as follows:
a=1.2,b=1,tau=60,deltat=0.01,sampe_n = 200000;
