Chaos theory attempts to explain the fact that complex
and unpredictable results can and will occur in systems that are sensitive
to their initial conditions. A common example of this is known as the Butterfly
Effect. It states that, in theory, the flutter of a butterfly's wings in
China could, in fact, actually effect weather patterns in New York City,
thousands of miles away. In other words, it is possible that a very small
occurance can produce unpredictable and sometimes drastic results by triggering
a series of increasingly significant events.
