Chaos theory is a theory that holds that some systems, such as weather, are ultimately unpredictable because of the effects of small scale events that cannot be included in the prediction equations. In mathematics, chaos theory describes the behavior of certain dynamical systems, those whose states evolve with time, that may exhibit dynamics that are highly sensitive to initial conditions, often referred to as the butterfly effect.
