Named after Dr. Ian Malcolm, the Malcolm Effect is believed to be a subset of Chaos Theory. Ian Malcolm used computers to model the behavior of complex systems. John Hammond asked Malcolm to model the systems for Jurassic Park. The Malcolm Effect is based off the fact of Malcolm’s models having a sharp incline or ledge to them. The models Malcolm designed looking like a twisted propeller of sorts, according to John Arnold‘s description. The behavior of any system, according to Malcolm, follows the shape of the propeller, but it speeds up as it comes close to the edge. This can also cause inherent instability in the system.
