As a possible dual concept of the order parameter in the theory of phase transition, it is desirable to introduce the disorder parameter for chaos. A mathematically well-defined disorder parameter is proposed, which is presumably identical with the Kolumogorov entropy, though rigorous proof is not yet obtained. Possible potential applications of the disorder parameter to the analyses of time-series are given.
