0 Reviews
Covering all essential topics, this book introduces the major paradigms in the transition to chaos as exhibited by dynamic systems -- all in a coherent and logically integrated format. Every route to chaos in clearly illustrated with examples of how it progresses in specific dynamical systems such as the logistical map, the Lorenz system, and more. Focusing mostly on dissipative systems, this book examines both concepts of mappings and differential dynamics.

Includes a chapter on fractal dimension and two chapters on the experimental measurements of chaos.
