Analyzing data from a chaotic pendulum, I calculated the Lyapunov exponent to be somewhere around 10^5 . While my gut tells me something is wrong with this number , i failed to find any information regarding the order of magnitude of Lyapunov exponents and their meaning.

Can someone give me a "feeling" for different magnitudes of Lyapunov exponents, or a place I can get a less theoretical and more practical read about them?

Thank you
