This activity is part of Khwarizmi Science society's National Science Movement.
The focus of this presentation will be the application of Non linear sciences to practical engineering and technological problems. Traditional "linear" sciences (that we all study in universities and colleges and schools) fail to provide answers to most of our questions because God made the world Nonlinear. It has been hailed as the science of the 21st century and a revolution in scientific method. Though, till now, most of the work in nonlinear sciences has been done by theorists in laying the foundations of its different aspects, the past few years have witnessed the increasing interest of technologists and engineers in applying it to practical real life problems. Digital communications, stunning computer graphics, data compression, stock market prediction and controlling heart attacks are a very ill-represented part of a wide spectrum of applications that cover all major areas of technology. We will see the different aspects of nonlinear theory such as chaos theory, complex adaptive systems, fractal geometry and how they interpret each other. The speaker will emphasize the utililty of these new tools in understanding very complicated phenomenon; from circuits and quanta to wars and living cells. Finally he will give a brief overview of his work regarding use of chaotic dynamics to send secret messages. The scope of the presentation will be very general and i will avoid use of any equations to explain ideas. The object of this presentation would be to motivate people rather than bombarding them with equations. Any student of engineering, sciences, economics, medicine or social sciences should be able to follow. People from all disciplines are welcome.
Introduction to Chaos: This introduction is a very elementary introduction to the science of chaos and gives a comprehensive, non-mathematical overview of the subject. This is an excellent starting point for the understanding of the principles of dynamical, deterministic, unpredictable systems. (Dr. Tariq Abdullah).

Science of Chaos: Video Presentation | Dr. Tariq Abdullah, our expert on chaos was there to field the questions from the viewers | 13 Oct 1999 | Children Library Complex, Lahore. This wide-screen presentation was primarily meant as a stimulant and interest-arouser. The duration of the movie was approximately 50 minutes. The fascination lay in a live display of many chaotic ensembles and interviews with the pioneers such as Mandelbrot, Lorenz, Bradley, Feiganbaum etc.
