La complejidad es una de las propiedades características del comportamiento económico. En este trabajo se exponen los principales conceptos y técnicas de la teoría del caos, analizando las distintas áreas de la ciencia económica desde el punto de vista de la complejidad y el caos.

[ABSTRACT] Complexity is one of the most important characteristic properties of the economic behaviour. The new field of knowledge called Chaotic Dynamic Economics born precisely with the objective of understanding, structuring and explaining in an endogenous way such complexity. In this paper, and after scanning the principal concepts and techniques of the chaos theory, we analyze, principally, the different areas of Economic Science from the point of view of complexity and chaos, the main and most recent researches, and the present situation about the results and possibilities of achieving an useful application of those techniques and concepts in our field.
