The Lorenz attractor, originating in atmospheric science, became the prime example of a chaotic system.
THINGS TO TRY
Rotate and Zoom in 3D
Due to the high precision numerical calculations involved in faithfully representing chaotic systems, this Demonstration should only be regarded as qualitatively correct, not quantitatively.
