"...well written and clear...a valuable reference for engineers and mechanicians." H.W. Haslach Jr., Applied Mechanics Reviews
"The book is a pleasure to read." Edoh Amiran, Mathematical Reviews
"The notes section at the end of the book is complete and quite helpful. There are hints and answers provided for a good percentage of the problems in the book. The problems range from fairly straightforward ones to results that I remember reading in research papers over the last 10-20 years....I recommend the text as an exceptional reference..." Richard Swanson, SIAM Review
Beginning with a discussion of several elementary but crucial examples, this study provides a self-contained comprehensive exposition of the theory of dynamical systems. It is aimed at students and researchers in mathematics at all levels from advanced undergraduate and up.
