Almost 25 years ago Lorenz published his seminal study on the existence of a strange attractor in the phase space of a severely truncated model system arising from the hydrodynamical equations describing two-dimensional convection. Nearly a century ago Poincare published his famous treatise Les Methodes Noovelles de la Mecaniaue Celeste (1892) in which the possible complexity of behavior in nonintegrable, conservative systems was first envisioned. Both these works address an age old puzzle: How do apparently stochastic outputs arise from an entirely deterministic system subject to non-stochastic inputs?
