what is the chaos theory all about??
Chaos! To be more specific, processes where very small changes in input give wildly different outputs. Weather forecasting more than a day or so in advance is a typical example.
For clarification, deterministic systems with great sensitivity in initial conditions. Random effects don't count. Mathematically defined as a positive lyapunov exponent - showing an exponential divergence in initial conditions. Philosophically significant as a way complex effects may be explained in terms of simple ones.
This doesn't really belong here. Chaos is pretty mainstream these days.
try finding Gleick's book, its very interesting stuff, nothing too math heavy, but gives a good introduction to what chaos theory is about and how it developed.
