Deterministisches chaos: Einige wissenschaftstheoretisch interessante aspekte [Book Review]


Abstract
Deterministic Chaos: Some Interesting Points of View from the Philosophy of Science. A comparatively simple example is used to present some of the main features of deterministic chaos. From the point of view of the philosophy of science, three questions are dealt with: if the equations of motion of chaotic systems are falsifiable in a strict sense; whether experiments on chaotic systems are reproducible; to what extent the development of chaotic systems is predictable. It emerges that in these respects chaotic systems, though being deterministic, behave essentially in the same way as stochastic (indeterministic) systems do
Keywords deterministic chaos  dynamical system  falsifiability  predictability  provisos  reproducibility of experiments  sensitive dependence on initial conditions  structural identity of explanation and prediction
