Title: Chaos and Dynamical Systems
Author: Krcelic, Khristine
Abstract: Throughout the ages, mathematics has been evolving and creating new branches. In the middle to late twentieth century, a new branch formed: chaos. Chaos is the study of dynamical systems that vary greatly with respect to initial conditions. The slightest change in an initial condition, a seemingly unnoticeable change, can yield a drastically different result if the system is chaotic. Hence the common term relating to chaos theory, the butterfly effect . Something as minute as the flap of a butterfly's wings could spawn a natural disaster half-way across the world. This thesis provides an insight to chaos from both a pure and an applied mathematician's point of view.
