I am not too sure where to post this,and so have decided on the general category.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

My question is on the Chaos theory. A very basic question as I have only recently come across this subject. Am I right in assuming that:

The future of a system is not predictable if the initial variables(that determine an event) exceed a certain finite number.

If this is true could someone please enlarge on the matter.If it is wrong please educate me. I am quite green on this subject.

Thank you.
