Caption: Classical and quantum chaos. Computer models of two types of chaos. The sphere (upper left) is a random wave, an example of quantum chaos. It is formed by the random addition of quantum waves. At lower right, the branching lines are the tracks of electrons spreading out under the influence of a random electrical landscape. The different colours show the angles at which electrons were launched from the starting point. Chaos is observed when patterns emerge from complex dynamic systems with unpredictable behaviour. The models were produced as artworks by Professor Eric Heller.
