Book Description: VINTAGE, United Kingdom, 1997. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 198 x 129 mm. Brand New Book. This book brings together different work in the new field of physics called the chaos theory, an extension of classical mechanics, in which simple and complex causes are seen to interact. Mathematics may only be able to solve simple linear equations which experiment has pushed nature into obeying in a limited way, but now that computers can map the whole plane of solutions of non-linear equations a new vision of nature is revealed. The implications are staggeringly universal in all areas of scientific work and philosophical thought. Bookseller Inventory # EAS9780749386061

Book Description: Random House. Book Condition: New. pp. xiii + 352 , Figures The science of chaos cuts across traditional scientific disciplines, tying together unrelated kinds of wildness and irregularity, from the turbulence of weather to the complicated rhythms of the human heart, from the design of snowflakes to the whorls of windswept desert sands. After reading Chaos, you will never look at the world in quite the same way again. Bookseller Inventory # 7644516
