Some recent developments in dynamical systems theory are outlined and their physical implications are discussed. In particular we introduce the concept of 'strange attractors': motions which arise as solutions of deterministic dynamical systems but which have extremely complicated and apparently random structures. We suggest that the behaviour of such motions has serious consequences for dynamical modelling exercises. © 1977.
