    Missing Figures CHAOS The word “chaos,” an enigmatic part of the vernacular, means a state without order, or the opposite of “cosmos,” an ordered state. Mathematical chaos is instability and unpredictability, often seen in nature due to its sensitivity to the random disturbances that commonly occur. This is known as determinism; previous events heavily influence future events, and small changes eventually lead to larger variations. Philosophically, chaos theory implies that everything is connected;

    CHAOS AND MENTAL DISORDER In 1992 Freeman has suggested the use of complexity for the study of schizophrenia and mood instability in bipolar disorders. (Freeman, 1992). According to Freeman, chaos underlies the brain's ability to respond flexibly to the outside world and to generate a rich variety of patterns, including those that are experienced as new ideas. Chaos thus expresses the unpredictable underlying order of attractors and allows the complex behavior observed in the brain. The dynamics

    D. What are chaos and complexity theories? how might they help us do better sociology, or at least help us have more realistic understanding of what is possible in sociology? Chaos theory can be seen in the butterfly effect, where a small little butterfly in the States that flaps its wings and changes the weather somewhere far away like China.

    ABSTRACT In this report non-linear behaviour and chaos have been explored through Duffing Equation computationally. Key features of the chaos theory such as attractors, Poincarè sections and phase-space diagrams have been analysed and discussed. The programing language of choice for this experiment was Fortran 90, which has been written explicitly for the purposes of acquiring a chaotic system and solving the Duffing equation. Introduction The Duffing Oscillator named by the German electrical

    Chaos Theory Explained “Traditionally, scientists have looked for the simplest view of the world around us. Now, mathematics and computer powers have produced a theory that helps researchers to understand the complexities of nature. The theory of chaos touches all disciplines.” -Ian Percival, The Essence of Chaos Part I: The Basics of Chaos. Watch a leaf flow down stream; watch its behavior within the water… Perhaps it will sit upon the surface, gently twirling along

    I paint with the idea of “Organized Chaos” in mind. It gives me little to no boundaries. Organized Chaos is an oxymoron, meaning the two words contradict each other. This idea makes the possibilities of my paintings endless. I may not show organized chaos specifically in the actual painting , but maybe in the process of painting. My painting can turn out the way I planned or something completely different. Every one of my paintings is planned and organized, but the outcome is anything but. My paintings

    Chaos and Literary Comparison     Abstract: I will show how chaos is can be found in art, specifically in literature, and analyze John Hawkes's Travesty to show the similarities between literature and chaos.   John Hawkes describes the "artistic challenge" as conceiving the inconceivable. In accordance with that thought, Wallace Stevens says, "Imagination is the power that enables us to perceive the normal in the abnormal." It is arguable that chaos, deterministic disorder, is both

    Life follows a deterministic path, meaning for every action in life, there yields an effect on someone or something. The Chaos Theory and synchronicity are perfect ideologies that show that mankind's life follows a deterministic path. The Chaos Theory is an ideology that no matter how small the event is, it will cause another more intricate event in the future ( “What Is Chaos…”). This theory though, is an actual concept used and applied in the science field. Meteorologists use this idea for predicting

    Chaos, according to many dictionaries, and even the passers-by in the street, is simply the lack of order or a state of disorder. Something that many people automatically think is negative, and something they try hardest to avoid. Who doesn’t like stability, and knowing where things are and what is going on at all times? However, it is of my opinion and definition that chaos is really a good thing, necessary for existence and life as we know it. Chaos is all-encompassing and unavoidable, a partner
