This text provides an accessible introduction to this controversial field. It shows how chaos makes its presence felt in many varieties, from fluctuation to animal populations to the ups and downs of the stock market. It also examines the the roots of chaos in modern mathematics and physics, and explores the relationship between chaos and complexity, the new unifying theory which suggests that all complex systems evolve from a few simple rules.
