## What is the Lorenz equation?

The Lorenz equations (published in 1963 by Edward N. Lorenz a meteorologist and mathematician) are derived to model some of the unpredictable behavior of weather. The Lorenz equations represent the convective motion of fluid cell that is warmed from below and cooled from above.

**What is the Lorenz manifold?**

Dr Hinke Osinga and Professor Bernd Krauskopf have turned the famous Lorenz equations that describe the nature of chaotic systems into a beautiful real-life object, by crocheting computer-generated instructions. Together all the stitches define a complicated surface, called the Lorenz manifold.

**What is Lorenz map?**

The Lorenz system is a system of ordinary differential equations first studied by mathematician and meteorologist Edward Lorenz. The shape of the Lorenz attractor itself, when plotted graphically, may also be seen to resemble a butterfly.

### What is the Lorenz attractor?

The Lorenz Attractor is a system of differential equations first studied by Ed N, Lorenz, the equations of which were derived from simple models of weather phenomena. The beauty of the Lorenz Attractor lies both in the mathematics and in the visualization of the model.

**How does the Lorenz system work?**

As with other chaotic systems the Lorenz system is sensitive to the initial conditions, two initial states no matter how close will diverge, usually sooner rather than later. While the equations look simple enough they lead to wondrous trajectories, some examples of which are illustrated below.

**What are the Lorenz equations?**

Originally described by Edward Lorenz as equations that would model the unpredictable behavior inherent in weather, the equations model the motion of fluid simultaneously heated from the bottom and cooled from the top. The Lorenz differential equations are nonlinear and [ [Deterministic s […]

## What can we learn from the Lorenz model?

Lorenz demonstrated that if you begin this model by choosing some values for x, y, and z, and then do it again with just slightly different values, then you will quickly arrive at fundamentally different results.
