Abstract

The extreme sensitivity of chaotic systems to tiny perturbations (the 'butterfly effect') can be used both to stabilize regular dynamic behaviours and to direct chaotic trajectories rapidly to a desired state. Incorporating chaos deliberately into practical systems therefore offers the possibility of achieving greater flexibility in their performance.
