A Sound of Thunder
The chaos theory is presented in "A Sound of Thunder" because when Eckels thought he didn't ruin anything in the past he actually stepped on a precious butterfly. The story sends the message that the decisions you make now will affect your future in big or small ways. It also sends the message that you may think something will turn out one way but it has a 50% chance of being reversed. A real life example of the chaos theory is when you take a test and you can never tell if you succeeded or failed before it is graded, but one question or a few points could make a huge difference. This relates to the message of "A Sound of Thunder" because one small thing can make a huge difference in your life and in a grade on a test.
