"Imagine Chaos." This Week in Science, Science, 22 September 2000, page 2001.

This is a one-paragraph description of a reseach article that appears in the same issue of Science. The article is "Graphical Evolution of the Arnold Web: From Order to Chaos," by Claude Froeschlé, Massimiliano Guzzo, and Elena Lega. The authors "have developed an efficient graphical representation of the transformation from order to chaos of an integrable system of quasi-integrable dynamical system, the so-called Arnold web, caused by a small perturbation."
