Introduction to Modern Dynamics: Chaos, Networks, Space, and Time

David D. Nolte


Introduction to Modern Dynamics: Chaos, Networks, Space and Time (2nd Edition) combines the topics of modern dynamics—chaos theory, dynamics on complex networks and the geometry of dynamical spaces—into a coherent framework. This text is divided into four parts: Geometric Mechanics, Nonlinear Dynamics, Complex Systems, and Relativity. These topics share a common and simple mathematical language that helps students gain a unified physical intuition. Geometric mechanics lays the foundation and sets the tone for the rest of the book by emphasizing dynamical spaces, like state space and phase spac ... More

Keywords: classical dynamics, chaos theory, complex systems, nonlinear dynamics, phase space, networks, relativity, econophysics, evolutionary dynamics, neural networks, synchronization, neurophysics, gravitation
