Chaos theory

In mathematics and physics, chaos theory deals with the behavior of certain nonlinear dynamical systems that under certain conditions exhibit a phenomenon known as chaos, which is characterised by a sensitivity to initial conditions.

One way of visualizing chaotic motion, or indeed any type of motion, is to make a phase diagram of the motion.
