The butterfly effect, as defined in the Chaos theory is an interesting phenomenon characterized by the sensitive dependence on initial conditions, where in a small initial change at a place in a nonlinear system can result in massive differences to a later state.The classical example quoted is that of a butterfly flapping its wings and causing a hurricane. Edward Lorenz popularized this term in weather forecasting which had already been descri- bed in the literature in a particular case of the three body problem by Henri Poincaré in 1890.(Some Historical Notes: History of Chaos Theory) He observed that a very minute changes in one of the variables (instead of entering a value as 0.506127, he chose 0.506) in a computer model for weather forecasting affected the whole system tremendously.
