Recently there has been a renewed interest in the random motion of deterministic systems, a subject dating back to Poincare. The original interest lay in trying to explain the fact that many-body problems in physics are well described by theories based on random behavior. Classical physics, however, views such systems as deterministic. It was discovered that most classical motions are, in fact, erratic, but the discovery of quantum mechanics caused the interest in this subject to die down. The revived interest lies in trying to understand turbulent behavior, which may be related to these erratic motions.
