This book captures the excitement of the expert contributors working at the forefront of this new area of science, detailing the latest developments in the different fields; from physics to biology, chemistry, the weather, quantum mechanics, and engineering. The nature of chaos is an edited and updated version of a highly popular lecture series given in Oxford focussing on the applications of ideas from dynamical systems theory. The interdisciplinary nature of the text makes it accessible to the non-specialist but also includes the technical details often lacking in other books on chaos - making this a comprehensive, lively account of the field. ranging.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'The Nature of Chaos, edited by Tom Mullin, is a wonderfully readable survey of the field by half a dozen of its leading researchers.' Tania Montero, Royal Holloway College, New Scientist, September 1993
'It is a pleasure ... to read a book which picks out the relevance of chaos and nonlinear dynamics to a range of applied fields in a careful and even understated manner ... has a strong practical flavour that provides an informative and readable introduction to the concepts of dynamical systems theory and bifurcation theory ... Despite being the product of several authors, the book is remarkably coherent. The editor has taken considerable trouble to avoid repetition and to represent the spread of interests.' David Broomhead, Physics World, February 1994
