Chaos Theory

A theory stating that seemingly unrelated events affect each other in a predictable, mathematical way. In investing, chaos theory is used to predict future stock prices using information that does not seem to affect prices directly, such as trading volume and trader sentiment. Computing these factors using chaos theory is as complex as it is controversial.

But in more complex game theory models, ones that incorporate incomplete or asymmetric information and that understand the "play" of the game as a developing process in time rather than a once-and-for-all computation of optimal strategies, the mathematical form and the outcomes mirror deterministic chaos.(83) That is, they show multiple, if any, solutions, and whatever they do is exquisitely sensitive to details of the model, including the initial conditions set.84)

Second, and more importantly, the interest of this study lies only in detecting low dimensional deterministic chaos. High dimensional chaos is, for all practical purposes, as good as randomness (see, e.g., Brock et al.

As the term deterministic chaos suggests, chaotic trajectories are not random.
These relationships show how the deterministic chaos found in hydrodynamic systems could lie underneath the probability distributions used in quantum mechanics thus continues the theme of interchangeability.
In order to investigate deterministic chaos in the time series of our system, we used the phase-space reconstruction method to reconstruct an attractor that preserves the invariant characteristics of the original attractor.

Weather can be considered as being in state of deterministic chaos, owing to its sensitivity to initial conditions.
where B = [[integral].sup.[infinity].sub.0] [x.sup.2.sub.2] ([xi])d[xi] is a constant once [x.sub.2]([xi]) is given, then in the system with fractional order displacement (11) the deterministic chaos may appear for certain parameter values which satisfy the relation
With the advent of deterministic chaos theory, a few hydrologic modeling studies have suggested irregular behavior could be the outcome of simple deterministic systems influenced by a few nonlinear interdependent variables (Khokhlov et al., 2008; Sivakumar, 2003; Yu et al., 2011).
