Edward N. Lorenz

Edward N. Lorenz, the MIT meteorologist whose efforts to use computers to increase the precision of weather forecasts inadvertently led to the discovery of chaos theory and demonstrated that precise long-range forecasts are impossible, died of cancer [in April of 2008] at his home in Cambridge, Mass. He was 90.
