Developed and class-tested by a distinguished team of authors at two universities, this text is intended for courses in nonlinear dynamics in either mathematics or physics. The only prerequisites are calculus, differential equations, and linear algebra. Along with discussions of the major topics, including discrete dynamical systems, chaos, fractals, nonlinear differential equations and bifurcations, the text also includes Lab Visits -- short reports that illustrate relevant concepts from the physical, chemical and biological sciences. There are Computer Experiments throughout the text that present opportunities to explore dynamics through computer simulations, designed for use with any software package. And each chapter ends with a Challenge, guiding students through an advanced topic in the form of an extended exercise.

MEDIA REVIEWS

From the reviews:

"... Written by some prominent contributors to the development of the field ... With regard to both style and content, the authors succeed in introducing junior/senior undergraduate students to the dynamics and analytical techniques associated with nonlinear systems, especially those related to chaos ... There are several aspects of the book that distinguish it from some other recent contributions in this area ... The treatment of discrete systems here maintains a balanced emphasis between one- and two- (or higher-) dimensional problems. This is an important feature since the dynamics for the two cases and methods employed for their analyses may differ significantly. Also, while most other introductory texts concentrate almost exclusively upon discrete mappings, here at least three of the thirteen chapters are devoted to differential equations, including the Poincare-Bendixson theorem. Add to this a discussion of $\omega$-limit sets, including periodic and strange attractors, as well as a chapter on fractals, and the result is one of the most comprehensive texts on the topic that has yet appeared."
