chaos theory

a branch of mathematics that seeks to predict widespread effects of small (or minute) and possibly remote triggering events; the unpredictable course of some epidemics and malignant metastases may accord with chaos theory.

chaos theory

The mathematical conception that some phenomena that seem random may be of a deterministic order highly sensitive to initial conditions and perturbations. There is a growing appreciation that chaos may be a feature of many biological systems and that chaos theory may prove to have many applications in medicine.
