Editorial Reviews


"I highly recommend this book for an advanced undergraduate course in dynamical systems." Mathematical Reviews

Book Description

The theory of dynamical systems is a major mathematical discipline closely intertwined with all main areas of mathematics. Its concepts, methods and paradigms have greatly stimulated research in many sciences and given rise to the vast new area variously called applied dynamics, nonlinear science, or chaos theory. This elegant introduction to the subject combines mathematical rigor with copious examples of important applications, covering topics ranging from Newtonian mechanics to coding theory. It will be a valuable first textbook for senior undergraduate and beginning graduate students of mathematics, physics, and engineering.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book has been very challenging for me. I'm not a mathematician (except in my dreams), and this book is heavy with abstract theory. One of the biggest challenges is that the book uses symbology not familiar to me, and there is no glossary of symbols (which would be VERY useful).

I would be interested in what others with a more mathematical background think about the book -- am I wasting my time trying to slog through it?

For someone just trying to get a feel for nonlinear dynamics and chaos, I strongly recommend Steven Strogatz's book "Nonlinear Dynamics And Chaos".
