    Would someone be able to explain to me how Lorenz' differential equations work? I have read the Wikipedia article but I don't get how they are actually used to model the chaotic motion of air particles and why there are three of them?

    Here's the article: http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lorenz_attractor

    If anyone can help me make sense of it, at an A level maths/further maths level, I would appreciate it a lot and probably rep you, thanks!
