Abstract: This paper considers the formation of molecular cloud cores via ambipolar diffusion, terrestrial planet formation, giant planet migration, planet scattering in the solar birth aggregate, and the long term stability of planets in binary systems. Chaos, including sensitive dependence on initial conditions, plays a crucial role in all of these problems.
