General measure of chaoticity of a system?

  1. Sep 5, 2008 #1
    Is there a way to have some observables, apply an equation and find a measure if the system is chaotic or not?

    For example, measure the time-dependent displacement of the wings of an airplane, apply some analysis and then say "OMG! And I mean O.M.G.! We are in the chaotic regime. Better do something about it!"
