Food for Thought
« on: July 26, 2019, 02:16:45 PM »
From LifeScience:

       Is there order in chaos?
Physicists can't exactly solve the set of equations that describes the behavior of fluids, from water to air to all other liquids and gases. In fact, it isn't known whether a general solution of the so-called Navier-Stokes equations even exists, or, if there is a solution, whether it describes fluids everywhere, or contains inherently unknowable points called singularities. As a consequence, the nature of chaos is not well understood.  Physicists and mathematicians wonder, is the weather merely difficult to predict, or inherently unpredictable? Does turbulence transcend mathematical description, or does it all make sense when you tackle it with the right math?

So far weather is unpredictable.
To be concluded

Order in Chaos.   Ask any teacher about the last hour of class before vacation.
