Science on Screen: The Killing with Ron Dickman

The fifth Science on Screen of the second series was presented by Ron Dickman (Professor of Physics at the Federal University of Minas Gerais), who chose Stanley Kubrick’s The Killing. Ron introduced the notion of chaos to describe the long-term unpredictability of deterministic systems, giving examples from fluid dynamics. Even though mastermind Johnny Clay utilises human chaos itself in the execution of the heist, his plan is finally undone by unanticipated events.
