In philosophy , and in popular culture , the word can occur with all three meanings.

In Seattle, detective Quentin Conners is unfairly suspended and his partner Jason York leaves the police force after a tragic shooting on Pearl Street Bridge, when the hostage and the criminal die. During a bank heist with a hostage situation, Conners is assigned in charge of the operation with the rookie Shane Dekker as his partner. The thieves, lead by Lorenz, apparently do not steal a penny from the bank. While chasing the gangsters, the police team disclose that they planted a virus in the system, stealing one billion dollars from the different accounts, using the principle of the Chaos Theory. Further, they find that Lorenz is killing his accomplices.

This sensitivity is popularly referred to as the butterfly effect . Small differences in initial conditions (such as those due to rounding errors in numerical computation) yield widely diverging outcomes for chaotic systems, rendering long-term prediction impossible in general. This happens even though these systems are deterministic , meaning that their future behavior is fully determined by their initial conditions, with no random elements involved. In other words, the deterministic nature of these systems does not make them predictable. This behavior is known as deterministic chaos, or simply chaos Chaotic behavior can be observed in many natural systems, such as the weather. Explanation of such behavior may be sought through analysis of a chaotic mathematical model , or through analytical techniques such as recurrence plots and Poincaré maps

9. Chaos At Maryland
Research group at the University of Maryland. Includes papers, gallery, database, abstracts, software, bibliography and contact.
The idea that many simple nonlinear deterministic systems can behave in an apparently unpredictable and chaotic manner was first noticed by the great French mathematician . Other early pioneering work in the field of chaotic dynamics were found in the mathematical literature by such luminaries as Birkhoff Cartwright Littlewood Levinson ... Smale , and Kolmogorov and his students, among others. In spite of this, the importance of chaos was not fully appreciated until the widespread availability of digital computers for numerical simulations and the demonstration of chaos in various physical systems. This realization has broad implications for many fields of science, and it is only within the past decade or so that the field has undergone explosive growth. It is found that the ideas of chaos have been very fruitful in such diverse disciplines as biology, economics, chemistry, engineering, fluid mechanics, physics, just to name a few. Chaos is a multidisciplinary science, and this is reflected in the fact that the members of the group are affiliated with diverse departments and institutes: Since the mid-1970s, the Chaos Group at Maryland has done extensive research in various areas of chaotic dynamics ranging from the theory of

He would pace for hours, heading nowhere in the starlight that hammers down through the thin air of the mesas. The police were not the only ones to wonder. At the national laboratory some physicists had learned that their newest colleague was experimenting with twenty-six-hour days, which meant that his waking schedule would slowly roll in and out of phase with theirs. This bordered on strange, even for the Theoretical Division.

    IMHO In My Humble Opinion
    Chaos Theory: A Brief Introduction
    What exactly is chaos? The name "chaos theory" comes from the fact that the systems that the theory describes are apparently disordered, but chaos theory is really about finding the underlying order in apparently random data. When was chaos first discovered? The first true experimenter in chaos was a meteorologist, named Edward Lorenz. In 1960, he was working on the problem of weather prediction. He had a computer set up, with a set of twelve equations to model the weather. It didn't predict the weather itself. However this computer program did theoretically predict what the weather might be. Figure 1: Lorenz's experiment: the difference between the starting values of these curves is only .000127. (Ian Stewart, Does God Play Dice? The Mathematics of Chaos, pg. 141)
    One day in 1961, he wanted to see a particular sequence again. To save time, he started in the middle of the sequence, instead of the beginning. He entered the number off his printout and left to let it run. When he came back an hour later, the sequence had evolved differently. Instead of the same pattern as before, it diverged from the pattern, ending up wildly different from the original. (See figure 1.) Eventually he figured out what happened. The computer stored the numbers to six decimal places in its memory. To save paper, he only had it print out three decimal places. In the original sequence, the number was .506127, and he had only typed the first three digits, .506.

    Chaos "Chaos" is a tricky thing to define. In fact, it is much easier to list properties that a system described as "chaotic" has rather than to give a precise definition of chaos. Gleick (1988, p. 306) notes that "No one [of the chaos scientists he interviewed] could quite agree on [a definition of] the word itself," and so instead gives descriptions from a number of practitioners in the field. For example, he quotes Philip Holmes (apparently defining "chaotic") as, "The complicated aperiodic attracting orbits of certain, usually low-dimensional dynamical systems." Similarly, he quotes Bai-Lin Hao describing chaos (roughly) as "a kind of order without periodicity." It turns out that even textbooks devoted to chaos do not really define the term. For example, Wiggins (1990, p. 437) says, "A dynamical system displaying sensitive dependence on initial conditions on a closed invariant set (which consists of more than one orbit) will be called chaotic ." Tabor (1989, p. 34) says, "By a chaotic solution to a deterministic equation we mean a solution whose outcome is very sensitive to initial conditions (i.e., small changes in initial conditions lead to great differences in outcome) and whose evolution through phase space appears to be quite random." Finally, Rasband (1990, p. 1) says, "The very use of the word 'chaos' implies some observation of a system, perhaps through measurement, and that these observations or measurements vary unpredictably. We often say observations are chaotic when there is no discernible regularity or order."

I'm confused though because I thought chaos was a word to describe disorder such as the chaos of New York traffic. Mentor: Well, that is one definition of chaos, but the term chaos is also used to express a mathematical theory. You are thinking of chaos in the vernacular sense, but for this activity it is representing a mathematical idea. Student: OK, I'll try to think of it as a mathematical term. In that case, what is chaos Mentor: Let's see if you can figure it out. Chaos can be present in many ways. In the Chaos Game it's present when even though the result of each individual throw of the die is unpredictable there is an overall pattern resulting from many throws of the die. In the

    In the Wake of Chaos:
    Unpredictable Order in Dynamical Systems
    Stephen H. Kellert
    The University of Chicago Press 1993 A book review by Danny Yee "Chaos" has rapidly approached "quantum" as the favourite scientific buzz-word of crackpots, pseudo-scientists, and others of that ilk. Even in the humanities and social sciences chaos theory is less often used to model phenomena than invoked as support for outré metaphysical claims or sweeping generalisations about the demise of Western science. As an exposition of the philosophical implications of chaos theory, Kellert's In the Wake of Chaos is therefore an important work. Kellert begins by defining chaos theory as "the qualitative study of unstable aperiodic behavior in deterministic nonlinear dynamical systems". He goes on to explain this in non-technical language, but he doesn't provide a general introduction to chaos theory: readers are expected to have read at least popular accounts of the subject. Chapter two addresses the topics of predictability and sensitive dependence on initial conditions. Kellert argues that the problems of prediction raised by chaos theory require a new form of impossibility, between
