Pattern formation and chaos in networks


Chaos theory involves the study of how complicated behavior can arise in systems that are based on simple rules, and how minute changes in the input of a system can lead to great differences in the output. Using computer graphics, the dynamic behavior of chaos-producing networks is explored, and convergence maps reveal a visually striking and intricate class of displayable objects.
