chaos theory: Theory that attempts to describe and explain the highly complex behavior of apparently chaotic, or unpredictable systems that show no underlying order. The behavior of physical systems is impossible to describe, using the standard laws of physics. This is because the mathematics needed to describe these systems is too difficult for even the largest computers.
