Nonlinear dynamics and chaos involves the study of apparent random happenings within a system or process. The subject has wide applications within mathematics, engineering, physics and other physical sciences. Since the bestselling first edition was published, there has been a lot of new research conducted in the area of nonlinear dynamics and chaos.
Expands on the bestselling, highly regarded first edition
A new chapter which will cover the new research in the area since first edition
Glossary of terms and a bibliography have been added
All figures and illustrations will be 'modernised'
Comprehensive and systematic account of nonlinear dynamics and chaos, still a fast-growing area of applied mathematics
Highly illustrated
Excellent introductory text, can be used for an advanced undergraduate/graduate course text
