In this chapter, we assume that two bounded rational firms not only pursue profit maximization but also take consumer surplus into account, so the objections of all the firms are combination of their profits and the consumer surplus. And then a dynamical duopoly Cournot model with bounded rationality is established. The existence and stability of the boundary equilibrium points and the Nash equilibrium of the model are discussed, respectively. And then the stability condition of the Nash equilibrium is given. The complex dynamical behavior of the system varies with parameters in the parameter space is studied by using the so-called 2D bifurcation diagram. The coexistence of multiple attractors is discussed through analyzing basins of attraction. It is found that not only two attractors can coexist, but also three or even four attractors may coexist in the established model. Then, the topological structure of basins of attraction and the global dynamics of the system are discussed through invertible map, critical curve and transverse Lyapunov exponent. At last, the synchronization phenomenon of the built model is studied.
