Term Definition
strange attractor‘basin’ of attraction within which a range of similar but non-repeating behaviors take place, behaviors which seem to be magnetically drawn or pulls together within the basin – it has fractal properties. Basically what is described with the strange attractors is that even though the British weather is infamous for its unpredictability, there is a ‘basin’ which gives it the particularly English style of weather, in that it is clearly different and never behaves like the monsoon or desert-like conditions. ‘Although the potential for chaos resides within every system, chaos when it emerges never moves outside the bounds of its strange attractor. […] the chaotic behavior exhibited is not random and unrestrained, it has its own kind of patterning and its own form of determinism(McMillan, 2004, p. 20). (see Annex C for more detailed info)
