Reviews

"The new edition has a friendly yet clear technical style . . . One of the book's biggest strengths is that it explains core concepts through practical examples drawn from various fields and from real-world systems . . . the author's excellent use of geometric and graphical techniques greatly clarifies what can be amazingly complex behavior." Physics Today

"Nonlinear Dynamics and Chaos is an excellent book that effectively demonstrates the power and beauty of the theory of dynamical systems. Its readers will want to learn more." Mathematical Association of America
