Proposed merge from Chaos theory[edit]

Anon contributor 74.177.69.89 has placed a mergeto tag on Chaos theory

Oppose merge. Not all dynamical systems are chaotic. These topics cover two distinct areas of study. Gandalf61 (talk) 09:50, 4 December 2008 (UTC)

Do NOT merge...it definetely does no service to merge it with another section especially when the non-scientist, such as myself, can only relate and search based on what little we remembered from our previous schooling...which definetely did NOT include dynamical systems. "Chaos Theory" is a term that most will and can relate to as it was of serious debate and dialogue for many who went to college in the 80's even though many of us were not scientists...so "Chaos Theory" as it stands does a greater service to searchers, where the reference to 'dynamical systems' attached to "chaos theory" is perfectly fine and suits those who may want to research further. Thanks! —Preceding unsigned comment added by 214.13.141.100 (talk) 12:39, 5 December 2008 (UTC)

No support for merge, so I have removed the mergeto tag from Chaos theory. Gandalf61 (talk) 13:38, 21 December 2008 (UTC)

"In human development" section should be separated[edit]

This lengthy section is found under "Applications," but does not describe an application of dynamical systems theory.

Unlike dynamical systems theory, which is a mathematical construct, dynamic systems theory is primarily non-mathematical and driven by qualitative theoretical propositions. This psychological theory does, however, apply metaphors derived from the mathematical concepts of dynamical systems theory...

That may motivate a link in this article, but it does not make this psychological theory an "application" in the scientific sense of the word.


The papers cited in "Applications" don't look like woo-woo, but they are a bit short on mathematical formalisms. I suspect they just use the term "dynamic system" to make some kind of "everything is connected" holistic/gestalt argument without actually using the mathematical theories. If so, it should be disambiguated.--92.214.195.110 (talk) 20:09, 10 May 2017 (UTC)

Assessment comment[edit]

The comment(s) below were originally left at Talk:Dynamical systems theory/Comments, and are posted here for posterity. Following several discussions in past years, these subpages are now deprecated. The comments may be irrelevant or outdated; if so, please feel free to remove this section.

Do not merge. I agree. I found this article based on "Chaos Theory". Maintaining it, at a minimum, assists us with legacy knowledge banks to find things. Simply link them to associate them.
