Chaos in the Einstein Equations — Characterization and Importance?

  • Svend E. Rugh
Part of the NATO ASI Series book series (NSSB, volume 332)


Is it possible to define what we could mean by chaos in a space-time metric (even in the simplest toy-model studies)? Is it of importance for phenomena we may search for in Nature?
