Nonlinear What?

Well, okay, one post. Read this: "We were able to derive a set of nonlinear difference equations for marital interaction as well as physiology and perception." That's right, the mathematics of love. Sort of interesting—supposedly this Gottman fellow can observe a couple for 15 minutes and predict with pretty astounding accuracy whether the relationship is doomed or not. Nonlinear difference equations and all.
