Description of this Book

Steven H. Strogatz s Nonlinear Dynamics and Chaos, second edition, is aimed at newcomers to nonlinear dynamics and chaos, especially students taking a first course in the subject. The presentation stresses analytical methods, concrete examples, and geometric intuition. The theory is developed systematically, starting with first-order differential equations and their bifurcations, followed by phase plane analysis, limit cycles and their bifurcations, and culminating with the Lorenz equations, chaos, iterated maps, period doubling, renormalization, fractals, and strange attractors. The Student Solutions Manual, by Mitchal Dichter, includes solutions to the odd-numbered exercises featured in Nonlinear Dynamics and Chaos, second edition. Complete with graphs and worked-out solutions, the Student Solutions Manual demonstrates techniques for students to analyze differential equations, bifurcations, chaos, fractals, and other subjects explored in Strogatz s popular book.

Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings

NZ Review 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.
