This timely work focuses on the recent expansion of research in the field of dynamical systems theory with related studies of chaos and fractals. Integrating the work of leading mathematicians, physicists, chemists, and engineers, this research-level monograph discusses different aspects of the concepts of chaos and fractals from both experimental and theoretical points of view. Featuring the most recent advances-including findings made possible by the development of digital computers-this authoritative work provides thorough understanding of known behavior of nonlinear dynamical systems as well as considerable insight into complex aspects not yet well understood. With a broad, multidisciplinary perspective and an ample supply of literature citations, Chaos, Fractals, and Dynamics is an invaluable reference and starting point for further research for scientists in all fields utilizing dynamical systems theory, including applied mathematicians, physicists, dynamists, chemists, biomathematicians, and graduate students in these areas.
