0 Reviews
This is a continuation of the previous two volumes of review papers on chaotic dynamics and related topics, published in 1987 and 1988 respectively. In addition to a few reviews written by active researchers specially for the volume, it also contains several reviews based on lectures delivered at the Spring School on Experimental Study of Chaotic Phenomena, held in Tianjing, China, in May 1989, and at the session on Nonlinear Dynamics during the Workshop on Condensed Matter, Molecular and Atomic Physics, held in June - August, 1989, at the International Centre for Theoretical Physics at Trieste, Italy. The emphasis has been made on multifractals, applied symbolic dynamics, the role of unstable orbits and transient chaos. This volume would be useful to graduate students and researchers in physical sciences and engineering.
