## chaos theory - Investment & Finance Definition

An area of mathematics that deals with non-linear dynamic systems. Although the results may seem to be random, they actually arise from a deterministic process. Chaotic systems have a fractal dimension and are highly dependent on initial conditions. Fractals are geometric structures that appear to be similar when viewed at a wide range of magnifications.
