In this talk, I will explain the correspondence between the Lorenz periodic solution and the topological knot in 3-space.The effect of small random perturbation on the Lorenz flow will lead to a certain nature order developed previously by Chow-Li-Liu-Zhou. This work provides an answer to an puzzle why the Lorenz periodics are only geometrically simple knots.
