Remember linear time invariant systems, as made famous by signal processing? Now relax the assumption that the model is linear, or even that its state space is in . Maybe its state is a measure, or a symbol, or whatever. Now say the word “chaos!”. Pronounce the exclamation mark. Maybe it's a random system, a stochastic process, or a deterministic process representing the evolution of the measure of stochastic process or whatever.
(Regarding that, one day I should try to understand how Talagrand uses isoperimetric inequalities to derive concentration inequalities.)
Topics that I should connect to this one: the weird end: “nonlinear time series wizardy”, Also “sync”. And “ergodic theory”.
To wish I understood: Takens embedding, and whether it is any statistical use at all.
There is too much to do here, and it's done better elsewhere. therefore: Idiosyncratic notes only.
