Theory is most powerful when it provides new approaches that help resolve long-standing problems. We review the origins, the early development, and some recent trends in the study of chaos and show how new methods of non-linear dynamics may be used to infer the underlying order in 'noisy' ecological and epidemiological time series. We consider, at some length, the application of these techniques to the study of childhood disease epidemics.
