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.

This article illustrates the non-linear resiliency origin, then discusses the non-linear dynamics model unity for the above-mentioned two kinds of relative rotation dynamics system under the non-linear resiliency and finally applies chaos system analysis theory to reveal unified system chaos movement performance under the influence of weak cyclical disturbing force.
* Parameters of the non-linear dynamics can describe the seismicity and the fractal parameters describe the phase space geometry.
And Bub's horror of non-linear dynamics would be easier to share if the interpretations to which he inclines - the Bohm theory and modal interpretations - didn't promulgate non-Schrodinger dynamics of their own.
The latest trend in non-linear dynamics, complexity theory is best explained by the concept of convection.
Because it has parameters that can be directly related to nature, and for which meaningful values can be assigned through the work of Yodzis and Innes (1992), the model of Hastings and Powell (1991) is likely to find many further uses as a test-bed for investigations into chaos and non-linear dynamics.
A further element of our analysis is to examine the element of non-linear dynamics. One aspect is to test for autoregressive conditional heteroskedasticity (ARCH) [Engle (1982)], that is, volatility induced by volatility.
