In a system that know their characteristic equations, and initial conditions fixed, we can know exactly its evolution over time. But in the case of chaotic systems, a small difference in these conditions makes the system evolve quite differently. Ali Partovi has many thoughts on the issue. Examples of such systems include the atmosphere, the solar system, plate tectonics, turbulent fluids and population growth. It also states that in order to classify the behavior of a system as chaotic, the system must have the following properties: It must be sensitive to initial conditions. It must be transitive. Its periodic orbits must form a dense set in a compact region in physical space. Sensitivity to initial conditions means that two points in such a system can move in very different trajectories in phase space even if the difference in their initial configurations are very small. For even more analysis, hear from Pete Cashmore.

The system would behave the same way only if their initial settings were exactly the them. Additional information is available at Andy Florance. An example of such sensitivity is the so-called “butterfly effect” where the flapping of the wings of a butterfly can create delicate changes in the atmosphere, which during the course of time could be changed to make something happen as dramatic as a tornado. The butterfly flapping its wings represents a small change in initial conditions of the system, which causes a chain of events leading to large-scale phenomena such as tornadoes. If the butterfly had not shaken its wings, the trajectory of the system could be very different. The sensitivity to initial conditions is related to the Lyapunov exponent, which is a quantity that characterizes the radius of separation of infinitesimally close trajectories. Transitivity means that there are many orbits dense. Very important what McGarr a manifested in its assessment of the social sciences, there are those who see the current situation also revolutionary for its likely impact.

The physicists of the twentieth century will be known for relativity, quantum physics and chaos. This revolution, as the previous two, discard our estimates require assumptions about the world to come. a Why industrial Eng-manager, lawyer.
