Chaos theory

Starting the pendulum from a slightly different initial condition would result in a completely different trajectory. The double rod pendulum is one of the simplest dynamical systems that has chaotic solutions. Chaos: When the present determines the future, but the approximate present does not approximately determine the future. Chaotic behavior can be observed in many natural systems, such as weather and climate.[6][7] This behavior can be studied through analysis of a chaotic mathematical model, or through analytical techniques such as recurrence plots and Poincaré maps.

Introduction[edit] Chaos theory concerns deterministic systems whose behavior can in principle be predicted. Chaotic dynamics[edit] The map defined by x → 4 x (1 – x) and y → x + y mod 1 displays sensitivity to initial conditions. In common usage, "chaos" means "a state of disorder".[9] However, in chaos theory, the term is defined more precisely. Where , and. How To Draw.

The Phenomenal Story Of The Pen 

But that wasn’t always the case! Pens have a rich history dating back millennia to the earliest civilisations where only very few people had the skill required to wield, giving them a real and very tangible power. While you may think that this contrasts markedly with our modern information-saturated world where pens are readily accessible to anyone, you would sadly be mistaken. Even though pens have fetched well north of $200,000 at auction, there still remains large swathes of the world where pens are seldom seen, much less used.

The story of the pen so far has been an intriguing one, and despite the best efforts to move data recording beyond pen and paper into the cloud, its last chapter is still a very long way off. The Earliest Pens. Visual Art by the Human Body. Visual Art by the Human Body.

His incredible creations are so dynamically unique once you have seen one you will easily spot another and recognise his style. Originally from Barcelona his work characteristically uses vibrant colouring and a slightly unhinged style that suits his uniquely themed pieces. He specialises in huge wall murals but his amazing illustration work can also be found in exhibitions along with sculptures that now fetch thousands of pounds. Truly an inspiring artist and one who deserves to be seen the world over. When asked about his work he said this: “I don’t really care about saying what it is — I just want people to see it” “The problem in the art business is that you have to create your own ‘character,’ and the art business sells your art as a whole thing.
