Teaching physics to neural networks removes 'chaos blindness'

Researchers from North Carolina State University have discovered that teaching physics to neural networks enables those networks to better adapt to chaos within their environment. The work has implications for improved artificial ...

Chaos theory helps to predict the outcome at the roulette table

At first glance, a roulette table looks like a jumble of numbers and a randomly hopping little white ball. But with a better understanding of physics and some general knowledge of the starting conditions, it may be possible ...

Drunken solution to the chaotic three-body problem

The three-body problem is one of the oldest problems in physics: It concerns the motions of systems of three bodies—like the sun, Earth, and the moon—and how their orbits change and evolve due to their mutual gravity. ...

Switching schools affects student achievement, study

(PhysOrg.com) -- Picture a kindergarten classroom of 20 students. By the time that class finishes fourth grade, only six students—30 percent—will have been continuously enrolled in the same school.

Chaos theory may explain instability in U.S. economy

Jeff Goldblum's character in "Jurassic Park" famously popularized the concept of chaos theory as it relates to science. But one University of Kansas professor is applying that theory to the economy.
