We started watching a Nova documentary on The Strange New Science of Chaos. It’s from 1989, but it has held up well and serves as an excellent introduction to this strange new world of constrained randomness and sensitivity to initial conditions.
For Friday, there are three sections from Fractals: The Patterns of Chaos that I would like you to read:
- Pages 55-60 – Our Weather Today is Chaos
- Pages 93-97 – Chaos and Symmetry Hybrids
- Pages 99-106 – Chaos Sculpts Fractal Landscapes
