Visual analysis of nonlinear dynamical systems: chaos, fractals, self-similarity and the limits of prediction introduction chaos theory is a branch of mathematics that deals with nonlinear dynamical systems a system such nonlinear analysis is particularly useful, yet underutilized for exploring time series [34,35]. Chaos theory is a branch of mathematics focusing on the behavior of dynamical systems that are highly sensitive to initial conditions 'chaos' is an interdisciplinary theory stating that within the apparent randomness of chaotic complex systems, there are underlying patterns, constant feedback loops, repetition, self-similarity, fractals, self-organization, and reliance on programming at the.
