In chaos theory, the butterfly effect is the sensitive dependence on initial
conditions, where a small change at one place in a nonlinear system can
result in large differences to a later state. The name of the effect, coined
by Edward Lorenz, is derived from the theoretical example of a hurricane's
formation being contingent on whether or not a distant butterfly had flapped
its wings several weeks before.
