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.

External links modified[edit]

Hello fellow Wikipedians,

I have just added archive links to one external link on Dynamical systems theory. Please take a moment to review my edit. If necessary, add {{cbignore}} after the link to keep me from modifying it. Alternatively, you can add {{nobots|deny=InternetArchiveBot}} to keep me off the page altogether. I made the following changes:

When you have finished reviewing my changes, please set the checked parameter below to true or failed to let others know (documentation at {{Sourcecheck}}).

Question? Archived sources still need to be checked

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.
