A system is chaotic if it is governed by a set of deterministic equations, but displays erratic, apparently random, behavior. The mathematical structure may be the iteration of linked difference equations in discrete time, or the evolution of a set of linked differential equations in continuous time. Stochastic interpretations, especially those involving time series analysis, are described.
