What do the weather, certain chemical reactions, a forest fire, Chinese voices and leeches have in common? How is it possible that absolutely fluctuating and unpredictable solutions are obtained from simple mathematical rules? How is it that scientists can study chaos, understand irregularities in nature and in their laboratories?
This is a story of chaos and complex systems, how it was discovered that tiny variations in
Initial conditions could lead to unsuspected results, and how it is almost impossible to hold a club vertically in your hand. But, in addition, we can take advantage of the enormous experience of the author, one of the most important physicists in the region, who will tell us about his adventures and efforts in the world of complexity, by the hand of birds, neurons and singing machines.
