• In Newtonian physics: – once we know the current state of the system, – we can predict (at least in principle) all the future states of this system. • In real life: – measurements are never absolutely accurate, so we do not have the exact knowledge of the current state. • However: – the more accurate our measurements of the current state, the more accurate predictions we can make. • The inaccuracy – of the existing knowledge and – of the resulting predictions • can often be described in terms of interval uncertainty
