I propose we make the tag a synonym of .

Currently, is set as a synonym of , but I'd like to argue that the most common usage of the term nonlinear dynamics is in the sense of being the (nonlinear) dynamics of and it should, just as the latter, be considered a synonym of :

  • $\begingroup$ Frankly, the term "nonlinear system" doesn't make any sense to me at all. And its tag wiki is pretty bad, too ─ that's not what nonperturbative means, and there's plenty of nonlinear perturbative dynamics out there. $\endgroup$ – Emilio Pisanty Mar 13 '18 at 12:15
  • $\begingroup$ @EmilioPisanty I agree, I also don't like it. Even "nonlinear dynamics" is not that great, that's another reason I like Qmechanic suggestion. $\endgroup$ – stafusa Mar 13 '18 at 13:26

One suggestion would be to create an umbrella tag . Would that be an improvement?

  • $\begingroup$ Yes, I think that would capture it very well. $\endgroup$ – stafusa Mar 13 '18 at 13:25
  • $\begingroup$ Is the little attention this question is receiving an impediment to the change being implemented? It would be great to have your suggestion put in practice. $\endgroup$ – stafusa Mar 17 '18 at 10:46
  • $\begingroup$ If there are no serious protests or counterproposals, it will be implemented eventually. $\endgroup$ – Qmechanic Mar 17 '18 at 19:59
