A method for estimating a period of unstable periodic solutions is suggested in continuous dissipative chaotic dynamical systems. The measurement of a minimum distance between a reference state and an image of transformation of it exhibits a characteristic structure of the system, and the local minima of the structure give candidates of period and state of corresponding symmetric solutions. Appropriate periods and initial states for the Newton method are chosen efficiently by setting a threshold to the range of the minimum distance and the period.
