Chaotic particle

  1. Aug 29, 2006 #1
    This is a rather silly post but a friend of mine posed this question to me, as a challange and as simple as I thought the answer would be I have been unable to solve it. Maybe someone can help.

    What is the name of a chaotic particle?

    His feild is fluid dynamics but I just can't seem to come up with a proper name for a chaotic particle, or is this a joke.

    Systems or groups of particles (photons, electrons, neutrons, protons, nuclei etc) can have chaotic behaviour but I don't think that a particle can be chaotic.
