We have recently launched the Bifurcation Diagrams Explorer. This is a tool for examining the behavior of low dimensional nonlinear dynamical systems.

Well, what does that have anything to do with information retrieval (IR)?

A lot!

If you are an IR guy at the intersection of nonlinear dynamics, you already probably know that bifurcation diagrams are relevant to:

So the implications to social media, search, and data mining are there, if you can grasp the relevant research out there.

I wonder how long it will take for pseudo-scientific marketers/seos to prey on that, as they tried in the past with LSI/LSA, LDA, Vector Theory, and few other IR topics.
