To better understand how the transition to chaos happens, one may consider a so-called bifurcation diagram.

For a better clarity, the transition to chaos through the numerical simulation is shown for three values of [f.sub.p] = 0.3, [f.sub.p] = 0.38, and [f.sub.p] = 0.45 (see Figures 4 and 5).
Now researchers have turned up theoretical and experimental evidence suggesting that this phase transition from an ordered to a disordered state may be an example of a transition to chaos. In other words, the complicated motion of the ions in the disordered state, rather than being truly random and unpredictable, is deterministic.
