Dynamic Equilibrium, Self-Organizing Systems, and Chaos Theory

It is commonly thought that the behavior of physical systems is controlled by deterministic laws, yet physical processes appear to be unpredictable. This Topic in Depth discusses how the concepts of self-regulating systems, dynamic equilibrium, and chaos theory help to rectify this conundrum. The first website ({1-- http://dbhs.wvusd.k12.ca.us/Equilibrium/Dynamic-Equilibrium.html}), developed by...
