Besides the occurrence of chaos in a large variety of natural processes, chaos may also occur because one may wish to design a physical, biological, or chemical experiment, or to project an industrial plant to behave in a chaotic manner. That chaos may indeed be desirable is further evidenced by the fact that it can be controlled using small perturbation of some accessible parameter or dynamical variable of the system.
