## What is chaos theory in a nutshell?

Chaos theory describes the qualities of the point at which stability moves to instability or order moves to disorder. For example, unlike the behavior of a pendulum, which adheres to a predictable pattern a chaotic system does not settle into a predictable pattern due to its nonlinear processes.

## What does a chaos theorist do?

Chaos theory is a method of qualitative and quantitative analysis to investigate the behavior of dynamic systems that cannot be explained and predicted by single data relationships, but must be explained and predicted by whole, continuous data relationships.

**What is the chaos equation?**

Chaos theory models how a population of living creatures changes from one generation to the next, when there are limits to the available resources. It is one of the simplest equations that can generate deterministic chaosâ€”apparently random behavior with no random cause.

### Who invented chaos?

Edward Lorenz, from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) is the official discoverer of chaos theory.

### Who created chaos theory?

**How do I find my order in chaos?**

How to find order in chaos:

- Maintain clarity of thought by handling fear.
- Use stress to intensify your focus.
- Find mentors who have handled pressure.
- Believe in your ability to work through complexity even if you don’t see how in the moment.
- Stop pretending you have all the answers â€“ admit you need help.

#### Who made chaos theory?

#### Can chaos be predicted?

Chaos is everywhere. This sensitivity to initial conditions means that with chaotic systems, it’s impossible to make firm predictions, because you can never know exactly, precisely, to the infinite decimal point the state of the system.

**Is the butterfly effect the same as chaos theory?**

In chaos theory, the butterfly effect is the sensitive dependence on initial conditions in which a small change in one state of a deterministic nonlinear system can result in large differences in a later state.

## Is chaos or order better?

“According to the philosopher, Ly Tin Wheedle, chaos is found in greatest abundance wherever order is being sought. It always defeats order, because it is better organized.”

## What happens if you step on a butterfly?

If you were to step on the first butterfly, another butterfly-like insect will eventually evolve because other mutations will eventually produce the same features that will be favoured by natural selection. A recent study in the journal Current Biology seems to tip the scale in favour of convergent evolution.
