Introducing chaos Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

If a butterfly stirs its wings in Brazil, does it cause a tornado in Texas? Chaos is the most important advance in science since the advent of Quantum Theory. The discovery of randomness in apparently predictable physical systems, has evolved into a new science that declares the universe to be far more unpredictable than we could have imagined.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 172-173) and index.
