Ground Control to Niels Bohr: Exploring Outer Space with AtomicPhysics
Mason A. Porter and Predrag Cvitanovic
The motion of bodies in space--such as comets, asteroids, andspacecraft--follow chaotic trajectories, as do excited electrons. The authorsdiscuss how the mathematical connections between these different scale, butotherwise related, nonlinear dynamical systems are helping astrophysics andchemistry.
