The Lorenz Attractor is likely the most commonly used example of Chaos Theory. This video introduces the topics and their applications (weather prediction, in particular) to those without a math-intensive background.
This video was made for MATH 442, Mathematical Modeling, at Texas A&M University. The class was taught by Dr Jean Marie Linhart.
Thanks to: The Cloud Appreciation Society for pictures. Youtube user Khyar for the double pendulum excerpt. And various others for pictures scavenged from the depths of the internet.
All plotting done with MATLAB.
