Quantifying Chaos in Dynamical Systems with Lyapunov Exponents

Abstract. In this paper, we analyze the dynamics of a four dimensional mechanical system which exhibits sensitive dependence on initial conditions. The aim of the paper is to introduce the basic ideas of chaos thoery while assuming only a course in ordinary differential equations as a prerequisite.
