9783527290390: Chaos & Complexity: Discovering the Surprising Patterns of Science and Technology

The surprising patterns of chaos and complexity are to be found in many areas of nature and science, examples ranging from cabbages to coastlines. Quite often, those who could benefit most from an understanding of the principles behind chaos and complexity, for example engineers, geologists, medics, chemists and physicists, are denied access to the power and wonders of the field by the mathematical and unnecessarily convoluted way the topic is usually presented.

This book opens up the fascinating opportunities offered by an understanding of this field to the informed layman, using informative and amusing examples of the application of the principles accompanied by many descriptive figures demonstrating the beauty of a science which can now be understood by all!
