1 Review
This book provides an introduction to the theory of dynamical systems with the ® aid of the Mathematica computer algebra system. It is written for both senior undergraduates and graduate students. The ?rst part of the book deals with c- tinuous systems using ordinary differential equations (Chapters 1–10), the second part is devoted to the study of discrete dynamical systems (Chapters 11–15), and Chapters 16 and 17 deal with both continuous and discrete systems. It should be pointedoutthatdynamicalsystemstheoryisnotlimitedtothesetopicsbutalso- compassespartialdifferentialequations,integralandintegrodifferentialequations, stochastic systems, and time-delay systems, for instance. References [1]–[4] given at the end of the Preface provide more information for the interested reader. The author has gone for breadth of coverage rather than ?ne detail and theorems with proofs are kept at a minimum. The material is not clouded by functional analytic and group theoretical de?nitions, and so is intelligible to readers with a general mathematical background. Some of the topics covered are scarcely covered el- where. Most of the material in Chapters 9, 10, 14, 16, and 17 is at a postgraduate levelandhasbeenin?uencedbytheauthor’sownresearchinterests. Thereismore theory in these chapters than in the rest of the book since it is not easily accessed anywhere else. It has been found that these chapters are especially useful as ref- ence material for senior undergraduate project work. The theory in other chapters of the book is dealt with more comprehensively in other texts, some of which may be found in the references section of the corresponding chapter.

About the author (2007)

Business Execution for RESULTS - A practical guide for leaders of small to mid-sized firms" written by Stephen Lynch, was named Judges' Choice Winner in the Management category of the 2014 Small Business Book Awards. The Small Business Book Awards celebrate the best business books that appeal to entrepreneurs, small business owners, CEOs, managers and their employees. The Winners were chosen by an expert panel of 24 judges from the small business community in the USA. The criteria for judging the Winners included: quality and quantity of the content conveyed; usefulness to small business owners and entrepreneurs; and freshness of the subject matter or how it was treated. The level of fan support for each nominee was also taken into account by the judges when choosing the Winners. About Stephen Lynch: What do a police officer, bodybuilder, pharmaceutical sales and marketing manager, nightclub DJ, software entrepreneur, a chief operating officer of strategy consulting firm, and a business execution expert all have in common? The answer: Stephen Lynch, who's been and done all that. Stephen is the Chief Operating Officer of RESULTS.com. He is responsible for researching and developing the strategic planning and business execution practices that are incorporated into the RESULTS.com software and consulting services. Jim Collins talks about "getting the right people on the bus," but Stephen could pull that bus, and all those people, right down the street. That's the kind of challenge you have to meet when you compete in New Zealand's Strongest Man competition. In 1993, Stephen won the Mr. New Zealand bodybuilding championship. Five years earlier, he had made getting that national title his primary goal. He studied bodybuilding, nutrition, and what top performers actually did. Then he put together a rigorous plan and followed it, day in and day out, for five years. That's the model Stephen's used ever since, both in his business and personal lives. Stephen is a native Kiwi (New Zealander) now living in San Francisco. He writes a weekly email newsletter that counts more than 40,000 business leaders around the globe as subscribers, and he has had his articles published in The Economist. Stephen has personally consulted with the leadership teams of thousands of client firms around the world, supporting them to create and execute their strategies using the exact methodology he writes about in his book, Business Execution for RESULTS.
