Chaos Theory has been called the third great revolution in Twentieth Century Physics after the Relativity and Quantum Theories. This course explains how Chaos Theory developed and its two primary characteristics: 1. The initial conditions of many complex systems governed by deterministic laws can never be known precisely enough to accurately predict their long-term behavior. 2. Within the apparent randomness of chaotic complex systems, there are underlying patterns, constant feedback loops, repetition, self-similarity, fractals, and self-organization. This course is based in part on lectures by Professor Steven Strogatz of Cornell from Chaos, one of The Great Courses. Pictures will be used more than formulas to explain the concepts of Chaos Theory.
