< Butterfly Effect >
The butterfly effect refers to a concept that small causes can have large effects. Coined by Edward Lorenz, it was used with weather prediction but later the term became a metaphor used in and out of science. The publication of Lorenz’s article titled ‘Deterministic Nonperiodic Flow’ ushered a new kind of scientific theory that promoted the concept of Deterministic Chaos. In chaos theory, the butterfly effect is the sensitive dependence on initial conditions in which a small change in one state of a deterministic nonlinear system can result in large differences in a later state. The name is derived from the metaphorical example of the details of a hurricane (exact time of formation, exact path taken) being influenced by minor perturbations such as the flapping of the wings of a distant butterfly several weeks earlier. Lorenz discovered the effect when he observed that runs of his weather model with initial condition data that was rounded in a seemingly inconsequential manner would fail to reproduce the results of runs with the unrounded initial condition data. A very small change in initial conditions had created a significantly different outcome.
