In this paper, we are particularly interested in the fractional form of the Hénon-Lozi type map. Using discrete fractional calculus, we show that the general behavior of the proposed fractional order map depends on the fractional order. The dynamical properties of the new generalized map are investigated by applying numerical tools such as: phase portrait, bifurcation diagram, largest Lyapunov exponent, and 0-1 test. It shows that the fractional order Hénon-Lozi map exhibits a range of different dynamical behaviors including chaos and coexisting attractors. Furthermore, a one-dimensional control law is proposed to stabilize the states of the fractional order map. Numerical results are presented to illustrate the findings.
