Chaos theory is a branch of mathematics focusing on the study of chaos—states of dynamical systems whose apparently-random states of disorder and irregularities are often governed by deterministic laws that are highly sensitive to initial conditions. Chaos theory is an interdisciplinary theory stating that, within the apparent randomness of chaotic complex systems, there are .

Essays on the nature of modem mathematics and on contemporary applied mathematics. Bower, Julia W. Introduction to Mathematical Thought. Preliminary ed. Hol-den, , pp. For the general college student and interested layman: stresses the imaginative nature of mathematics and its aesthetic appreciation. The Nature of Mathematics mathematics has made an indelible imprint on every part of modern science, even as science itself has stimulated the growth of many branches of mathematics. Applications of one part of mathematics to another--of geometry to analysis, of probability to number theory--provide renewed evidence of the fundamental unity.
