By refocusing on statistical issues, science can still make predictions!
”Chaos（混乱）: When the present determines the future, but the approximate present does not approximately determine the future.“
In mathematics, a dynamical system（动力系统） is a system in which a function describes the timedependence of a point in a geometrical space.
Ergodic theory(遍历论） is a branch of mathematics that studies dynamical systems with an invariant measure and related problems. Its initial development was motivated by problems of statistical physics.
Sinai-Ruelle-Bowen (SRB) measure: The concept of SRB measure is a rigorous formulation of what it means for an invariant measure to be “physically meaningful.” An SRB measure attracts a large set of orbits into its support, and its statistical features are reflected in the behavior of these attracted orbits.
