Author:Victor J. Donnay; Bryn Mawr College
Description: In dynamical systems, an object moves according to a rule. Depending on the rule motion, the object may move in a regular fashion or in a chaotic fashion. This project by Prof. Donnay, his students, and colleagues illustrates the ideas of chaos theory by letting the user play interactively with three different types of dynamical systems illustrated with Java applets: Billiards, the Phase Space Game, and Iteration of a point on the real number line.
