# What is Chaotic: Definition and 65 Discussions

Chaotic was originally a Danish trading card game. It expanded to an online game in America which then became a television program based on the game. The program was able to be seen on 4Kids TV (Fox affiliates, nationwide), Jetix, The CW4Kids, Cartoon Network and Disney XD. It was brought over to the United States from Denmark by Bryan C. Gannon and Chaotic USA Entertainment Group, and produced by Chaotic USA Entertainment Group, 4Kids Productions and Bardel Entertainment. The trading card game came out September 6, 2006 in the U.S. and Canada.
Each card comes with a unique code which the owner can upload onto the Chaotic website. This allows the owner to trade and play online using his/her own card collection. The game was well known to be the only game with a TV show, an online game, and a TCG that were all integrated. However, the online game is currently closed.

18. ### I Harmonic oscillator: Why not chaotic?

Hi. As far as I know, the movement of a harmonic oscillator normally is not considered to be chaotic. Why not? Since the angular frequency can never be known to absolute precision, an error in the phase builds up. I can see that this build-up is only linear in time (if we assume the angular...
19. ### Intuitive idea for chaotic light statistics?

Does anyone have an intuitive idea for the statistics of chaotic light? I can understand that the power fluctuations in this kind of light can give rise to a second order autocorrelation parameter g(2) higher than 1. However I can not see why the value for this parameter should be g(2)=2. Does...

48. ### Chaotic Inflation Models & Equations

When using the Friedmann equation (flat space, no cosmological constant): H = sqrt (8 pi G / 3 ) * rho, if we use rho in mass/volume, H is in (time)^-1 like it should. Now for some inflation models, we use: H = sqrt (8 pi G / 3 ) * V(Phi). It seems that V(Phi) should also be able to be...
49. ### Are chaotic systems really determinitistic?

Chaotic systems are defined in terms if extreme dependence on initial conditions. Very small changes in initial conditions result in large scale variations "downstream". The implication is that if we know the initial conditions exactly, we can know the system's behavior exactly as it evolves...
50. ### Is there a beginning to chaotic inflation?

Is chaotic inflation eternal into the past forever, as well as into the future forever. In the theory was there a beginning to it, or has it always been?
