Book Description

January 26, 2004 0521529026 978-0521529020 2
The time variability of many natural and social phenomena is not well described by standard methods of data analysis. However, nonlinear time series analysis uses chaos theory and nonlinear dynamics to understand seemingly unpredictable behavior. The results are applied to real data from physics, biology, medicine, and engineering in this volume. Researchers from all experimental disciplines, including physics, the life sciences, and the economy, will find the work helpful in the analysis of real world systems. First Edition Hb (1997): 0-521-55144-7 First Edition Pb (1997): 0-521-65387-8

Editorial Reviews

Review

"...original, fundamentally honest, and very useful and valuable...an indispensable tool for [those] confronted with the analysis of possibly chaotic signals." Journal of Biological Sciences

"The book is a good reference to the current state of the art from the nonlinear dynamics community and is importnant reading for anyone faced with interpreting irregular time series." Contemporary Physics, Professor R.S. MacKay

Book Description

The time variability of many natural and social phenomena is not well described by standard methods of data analysis. Nonlinear time series analysis uses chaos theory and nonlinear dynamics to understand such seemingly unpredictable behaviour. Results are applied to real data from physics, biology, medicine, and engineering. While based on a sound mathematical background, the book emphasises practical usefulness. Researchers from all experimental disciplines, including physics, the life sciences, and economy, will find guidance for the analysis of real world systems.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent for practitioners February 22, 2001
Format:Paperback
This book provides an excellent overview of chaos theory concepts applied to time series analysis. First part constitutes a good tutorial on chaos theory and its implications on time series analysis while the second part discusses in detail aspects of time-series related chaos theory concepts (with an historical perspective of the related research). Time series analysts will certainly benefit from it thanks to its balanced exposition of issues of chaos theory concepts for non-infinite data sets...
However, the only drawback is that it essentially deals with deterministic systems, not stochastic ones. But if you gathered your data on a physical system, it's OK.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good for both beginners and advanced practitioners October 21, 2003
By pla
Format:Paperback
In my search for good material on time series analysis, I have come across many books packed with information, yet so dry as to make them unreadable (readers of Hamilton's "Time Series Analysis" will know what I mean - Amazing book, but unreadably boring).
Kantz and Schreiber do not suffer from that all too common problem. They write clearly and in a very readable style. Their use of real-world datasets and numerous (though not overwhelming) charts makes their work quickly accessible even to beginniners in the field. They provide enough mathematical formalisms to make use of what they present, but not so many as to require a PhD in math to follow the flow of the text. For more advanced readers, they cover a wide range of topics useful both for analysis and for forecasting. Chapter 12, in particular, opened me to a whole world of new techniques.
As my one negative comment on this book, I would have liked that same chapter 12 fleshed out more, to the point that I would buy a follow-up book covering nothing but an elaboration on that single chapter.
If you have an interest in time series analysis and forecasting, and have grown tired of dry material that provides nothing more than yet another extension to ARIMA or Kalman filtering, you will love this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is a book for forecasting people July 26, 2009

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I only write this review to repudiate a previous reviewer's comment that this is a good book on "chaos". No, it is not. There is no detailed 'first-principles' description of ANYTHING that forms the theoretical basis of deterministic dynamical systems. So, don't buy this book for a first-glance at analysis of dynamics in chaotic systems! (Typically, I assume, one needs to understand the theory before attempting to decipher experiments. Try the books by Nonlinear Dynamics And Chaos: With Applications To Physics, Biology, Chemistry, And Engineering (Studies in nonlinearity) Strogatz or Nonlinear Dynamics and Chaos: Geometrical Methods for Engineers and Scientists Thompson-Stewart or Chaos Tsonis, for a structured forage into theoretical chaos)

What this book is, is a review/collection of revised manuscripts of some fine articles published by the authors and others who were looking to quantify the experimentally-observed dynamics of chaotic systems. The first edition (1999) of this book is more of a collection of notes, but the second edition is far more comprehensive and well-structured.

The target audience for this book are advanced graduate students who are acquainted with the theory governing nonlinear dynamical systems, undergrad-level stats and advanced linear algebra (topics in topology?). (This 'target audience' description is not didactic as I myself did (do) not know much about either topology or stats before working with this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book on nonlinear time series analysis October 20, 2011

I often refer to this book as a starting point in learning about new (to me) techniques in nonlinear time series analysis. I find the book easy to read and very helpful.
