9780750301954: Introduction to Chaos and Coherence

Introduction to Chaos and Coherence provides a clear introduction to the theory of chaotic systems, with a minimum of mathematical complexity. Used extensively in this color-illustrated book, Lyapunov exponents are convenient tools for exploring models of chaotic systems. Aimed primarily at advanced undergraduate students of physics and applied math, the book will also be of value to anyone with an interest in a mathematical approach to their subject, in particular, chemists, astronomers, and life and earth scientists.

From the Back Cover:

Introduction to Chaos and coherence is a condensed, easy-to-read account of the basic concepts and principles of chaotic dynamical behaviour-all explained in as simple terms as possible. This is achieved by using examples whose simplest properties are calculable without using any advanced mathematics. The mathematical requirements are within the range of most graduate and undergraduate students of science. This book will provide a valuable insight into the concepts of chaos and coherence for those who wish to acquire more than a superficial knowledge of this fascinating and topical field.

Review:

"A grand book for a course aimed at mathematicians, physicists or engineers...the whole sweep of nonlinear dynamics, from chaos to cellular automata...an exciting little book." New Scientist ..."a wonderful book. The book serves as an excellent introduction in the field for the beginners. The reading of this book will be fruitful for all scientists and engineers stimulating them to understand the surrounding nature. The book is a valuable acquisition for any academic or technical library."
