In the development of science in the twentieth century, philosophers and scientists convinced that there could be a motion even for a simple system which is erratic in nature, not simply periodic or quasiperiodic. Moreover, the behaviors of the motion may be unpredictable and therefore long-range prediction is impossible. The science of unpredictability has immense interest.
