    Okay, so we know that chaotic systems have a dependency on initial conditions, but how exactly do we find out what this order of magnitude this dependency is? I.e. What is the greatest distance two particles can be apart, in a chaotic system, and still have the same trajectories?

    See this for starters. It doesn't answer your question (I mean, I highly doubt there is a general answer to that) but it should be of interest.
