    How could I link non-linear dynamic systems (ie - deterministic chaos) to the study of dimension and its 'quirk's... i wrote about fractals, which leads to non-linear dynamic systems which is all fine and dandy.... but what's chaos' link to dimension??

    thanks for any help!! much appreciated!

    Hi there - when it comes to this level of maths I'm just an interested amateur, but have you talked about fractal dimension? By this I mean the fact that fractals have 'dimensions' other than what we might expect from looking at them: for example the Sierpinski Gasket has dimension log_2 3. This is also referred to as 'Hausdorff Dimension' or 'Hausdorff Measure'. This link: http://math.bu.edu/DYSYS/chaos-game/node6.html might be handy. Sorry if you know this all already!

    :ditto:, it's a research paper
    i've already done that but thanks for the link!! i think it might be able to help!
    have you got any more that explicitly relate chaos and dimension to one other?

    cuz i've gone dimension--> fractals--> fractal geometry & fractal dimension --> chaos in the essay

    so whats the arrow in chaos --> dimension?

    A bit of googling found this link: http://www.somlev.net/chaos/index.html which has the promising title of 'Chaos, fractals and dimension' and includes several pages on 'Measuring Chaos', but a few pages in I stopped being able to follow the maths! Good luck with your paper and I hope you find the answer - sorry I wasn't much help!

    up to 4000, have 1474
    but no limit in maths really, as a maths essay of 3500-4000words has way more content than an english essay of that word count, b/c thats discounting calculations, formulae, pictures, tables, diagrammes, etc

    Thanks!! :o:

    ps - i was reading the stuff, and the first link alone gives me answers to 3 questions so cheers!


    EDIT: if you're really interested in this stuff, i could send it to you when i'm done, maybe you'll learn something new

    yes, essays in maths (who woulda thought, honestly... its not like im doing my PhD right now :eek: :p: )

    but yeah, in the IB the satndard and higher level students get portfolios, and my first one last year got up to 32 pages i think it was, that was a fun 3 days...

    and in the IB we have to do this thing called extended essay, and i chose to do it in maths cuz the portfolios were fun, it was a challenge, interesting, and i might wanna study maths

    you don't have this? but i see you take like further maths! :eek:
