OF 0017.02 Chaos and Fractals: Why Can't We Beat the Roulette?

This course explores the conundrum between determinism and randomness through the concept of chaos and its beautiful fractal signatures. Considering that the mechanical systems that surround us are deterministic (knowledge of the past precisely determines the future evolution) and thus predictable through the laws of physics, why do certain systems display apparently unpredictable behavior? For example, is a coin toss a random event? Can we predict the roulette? The laws of physics dictate that if one knows all forces acting on a system then all its future evolution is strictly determined by its initial configuration. If so, why can’t we beat the roulette?
