Systems and methods for predicting the outcome of chaotic systems are described. An example of a prediction system disclosed herein includes, in general, functional elements to vary the initial conditions of a chaotic system and calculate a plurality of possible trajectories for the chaotic system. The prediction system also includes calculating a Lyapunov exponent for each of the plurality of possible trajectories and selecting the trajectory with the smallest Lyapunov exponent as the most likely trajectory to occur.
