Chaos and Nonlinear Dynamics: An Introduction for Scientists and Engineers

Robert C. Hilborn


This book introduces the full range of activity in the rapidly growing field of nonlinear dynamics. Using a step-by-step introduction to dynamics and geometry in state space as the central focus of understanding nonlinear dynamics, this book includes a thorough treatment of both differential equation models and iterated map models (including a detailed derivation of the famous Feigenbaum numbers). It includes the increasingly important field of pattern formation and a survey of the controversial question of quantum chaos. Important tools such as Lyapunov exponents, fractal dimensions, and corr ... More

Keywords: chaos, nonlinear dynamics, dynamical systems, fractals, quantum chaos
