Short summary
We propose the c-u-curve method to characterize dynamical (time-variable) systems of all kinds. U is for uncertainty and expresses how well a system can be predicted in a given period of time. C is for complexity and expresses how predictability differs between different periods, i.e. how well predictability itself can be predicted. The method helps to better classify and compare dynamical systems across a wide range of disciplines, thus facilitating scientific collaboration.
