Has anyone here taken courses on these two topics? If so how are they.
Also just wondering. Does mathematical dynamics have anything to do with dynamics physics and engineering?

The whole butterfly = tornado thing isn't bullshit. It has been proven using mathematics and physics.

I can understand and appreciate how something seemingly small can have huge implications but for 99% of events it doesnt work that way. Most stuff that happens has no real world effect on the next room let alone the other side of the world.

Anything involving airflow can have it... like imagine holding a piece of paper at shoulder height, dropping it, and seeing how it lands. If you hold it at a slightly different angle before letting go it'll land somewhere else.

So you think Chaos Theory and NonLinear dynamics are utter pointless crap, and 99% of dynamic systems are linear.

So you must think Lorenz a Mathematician and Meteorologist from MIT was full of him self when he said "Predictability: Does the Flap of a Butterfly's Wings in Brazil set off a Tornado in Texas?" and concluded it does have a meaningful effect on the system.

Well, it's true that not all systems are chaotic. Actually most systems aren't chaotic at all... you can study them using the normal stuff in a differential equations class. But there are some things that are chaotic.
Originally posted by: StatsManDMotavian have you taken a math course in "Numerical Analysis in Differential Equations", if so which do you think is more interesting.
