"Chaos Theory" is more a general term rather than a specific theory. The outline of the concept is: 1) For certain systems, small changes in the present state of the system can lead to very large differences in a future state of the system. 2) It is impossible, even in theory, to have exactly precise measurements of any system. 3) Therefore, it is impossible to make longterm predictions about certain systems. Those systems where small changes to the initial conditions can result in very large differences down the road are called "chaotic" systems. The weather is believed to be a chaotic system. John Conway's mathematical game of Life is another example of a chaotic system: http://www.math.com/students/wonders/life/life.html An excellent place to read about chaos is Dr. Matthew Trump's short online course: http://order.ph.utexas.edu/chaos/index.html Greg Rae has got a slightly different way of explaining it which might also prove helpful: http://www.imho.com/grae/chaos/chaos.html Google search used: chaos theory introduction Cheers, nausterga

Chaotic and Entropic theories are severely short sighted. In all natural systems, one fundamental and identified (fractal) pattern is intrinsic to all derived natural vibrations in all realms of analysis. In our current system, the complexity is quite vast due to interactions of particles over a long period of time, however, if mapped accurately, the intrinsic natural pattern and vibration is easily descerned and is intrinsic to all current indicators and systems. In short, knowing the complex numerical value of the seed natural vibration (note: "big bang" is INCORRECT, it is a continual cycle) you may easily reduce out the natural characteristics and thus be capable of analysing the residual characteristics, thus tracing the finite particle's interactions and history the complete cycle between emination and current, and thus be able to track its potential interactions throughout the future. Contact Wilfred@Cryogen.com for more info. The fundamental theories of quantum physics, especially the second fundamental theory of thermodynamics, are severely flawed. Research labs which simulate nuclear reactions have exhibited the capacity to do such computations, however, they fail to accomodate the intrinsic natural pattern exhibited fundamentally by all realms. Time is included in this natural cycle.

I think, nobody can "explain what's the "chaos theory", because such theory does not exist yet... Chaos takes place in many complex systems. Those systems have more than billions of degrees of freedom. There are billions of scenario how the complex systems can demonstrate chaotic behavior. Only several dozens of those scenario are investigated in theory of Dynamic Systems with several (from three to about ten) degrees of freedom. Those several dozens of the investigated scenario are called 'The Theory of Deterministic Chaos in Dynamic Systems'. A lot of links to the “Chaos Theory”, which is actually “Deterministic Chaos Theory”, is available in the Google directory: http://directory.google.com/Top/Science/Math/Chaos_and_Fractals/Chaos/
