Abstract
In common terminology, chaos refers to a state of randomness or unpredictability. Chaos has a different meaning in physics and mathematics. In physics, chaos is a structured but irregularly patterned behavior displaying an extraordinary sensitivity to initial conditions. Work done by the principals of the proposal has proven that logic elements can be built with chaotic elements and can replicate basic digital logic functions. This technology takes advantage of the extraordinary sensitivity of this chaotic system to provide multiple behaviors and to morph behaviors extremely quickly and reliably. The work proposed hereunder improves and extends existing technology into a form that is viable for commercial use.
