just to mention the major subfields.

Capsule History

Many of these areas have arised from questions in dynamics of earth and its atmosphere like three-body collisions which is what got Poincare’ to spin-off topology, and later physics researcher n-body simulations. Lorenz who found strange attractors in the weather models he used. Kelvin and Helmholtz with their instability as an precursor and predictor ofturbulence. Mandelbrot who finds fractals in many places in natural and anthropogenic phenomena.You know you are dealing with a nonlinear system if the output is not proportional to the input data.
