Chaos Theory and the Power of a Butterfly

Description
Chaos Theory, the third great revolution in 20th century physics, has changed the way we view the world around us and enabled scientists to tackle problems that previously seemed too difficult to solve. And its uses are not limited to physics. They extend to biology, chemistry, and engineering as well. Just what power can the flapping of a butterfly’s wings have? Well, out of simple systems come majestic complexities. In a way non-specialists can follow, let OLLI and Professor Wimbush show how small disturbances can do such mighty work.
