Chaos theory is easy, all you need to know is is that for things to be arranged into any kind of a pattern energy must be used, but for things to be completely random, no energy is needed. This is why chaos (randomness), not order, is predominant in nature.

There''s a little bit more to chaos theory than that ... And since this is a graphics forum, I imagine Dark Star is looking for something a little more practical :->

Try doing a search on google.com for "Introduction to chaos theory". That throws up lots of links.

I think the area of chaos theory germane to graphics is fractals. You can use them to produce realistic mountains, clouds, trees, etc... Other areas may apply to AI.
