It does however lack exercises, which may make it less useful for some kinds of self-study. And a final chapter “Characterizing Chaos” offers practical advice on methods for distinguishing and characterizing systems that exhibit chaos: He is co-editor of several professional journals with an international readership.
Men like Blaise Pascal, Raul Julia and Benoit Mandelbrot have advanced theories in their times that have contributed to Chaos theory, so the reader can understand that Chaos theory was not pulled out of some theoretical hat.
Retrieved from ” https: See details for description of any imperfections. On chaos he covers, among other topics, iterated functions, discrete dynamical systems and the logistic function, sensitive dependence to initial conditions, Lyapunov exponents, the shadowing lemma, bifurcation diagrams and the universality of the period-doubling route to chaos, and renormalization. He doesn’t even assume, to take one example, comfort with logarithms: Almost 12 years have passed by since we wrote Chaos and Fractals.
Chaos and Fractals: New Frontiers of Science by Heinz-Otto Peitgen
A considerable amount of general mathematics is introduced in support of this. Vb rated it it was amazing Jul 20, Daniel rated it it was amazing Aug 10, At the time we were hoping that our approach of writing a book which would znd both accessible without mathematical sophistication and portray these exiting new fields in an authentic manner would find an audience.
Theory and Application appeared and is now the publication to refer to. They also look at cellular automata, Pascal’s Triangle, and some fractaps theory.

This proceeds directly to random fractals and box-counting and divider dimensions with “a brief overview of the Hausdorff dimension for completeness of the text”introducing Richardson plots and glancing at multifractals. Discusses many topics which can be explored independently. They are all, given their different goals and audiences, pedagogically excellent, clearly refined by practical teaching experience.
Pietgen further illustrates his topics with classical theories from some of the greatest scientists and mathematicians in history. Wanna understand chaos theory and fractals?
