I have a hunch that Melville intuitively grasped the concept of deterministic chaos.
Keeping this possibility viable is one reason for rehabilitating deterministic chaos as a theory-generative model in the human sciences and humanities: the model may shed some light on the noncognitive realm of understanding.
Brock, Dechert and Scheinkman (1987) applied the correlation integral to form a statistical test that may be employed to detect various types of nonlinearity as well as deterministic chaos
This study examines five major trading currencies and three less actively traded currencies for the existence of low-dimensional deterministic chaos.
Second, and more importantly, the interest of this study lies only in detecting low dimensional deterministic chaos.
It is worth noting in this regard that many of the studies that have found evidence of deterministic chaos in human systems have been done in fields where measurement is relatively fine, such as economics (Chen, 1988) or physiological psychology (Barton, 1994; Freeman, 1991).
Given that deterministic chaos arises in deterministic systems, and given that human beings exhibit free will, why would we expect deterministic chaos in the sorts of human systems that are of interest to social workers?
However, in the absence of identification of a chaotic attractor by the GP correlation dimension analysis, very possibly an artifact of data limitations, one is unable to obtain conclusive evidence of the existence of deterministic chaos.
This study attempts to detect the presence of low dimensional deterministic chaos in bond yield movements by examining four bond market aggregates.
Thus, the results from the LWR support the hypothesis herein that the existence of nonlinearities in the time series of insurance stock returns is due to the presence of low deterministic chaos
Thus, by utilizing a statistical methodology specifically designed to detect low-dimensional deterministic chaos
in the major Pacific Rim stock markets, this study fills an important void in the existing literature.
The synthesis of globally recognized theories (Capra, 1968), Newton's classical theory, the Theory of Natural Philosophy (Boskovic, 1763), the Quantum Theory (Ponomarev, 1988), the Theory of Dissipative Structures, the Theory of Deterministic Chaos
(Stewart, 1996), personal insights and experimental measurements have resulted in a formula that imitates forest growth and development.
