Chaotic Modelling and Simulation. Analysis of Chaotic Models, Attractors and Forms
This book is intended as a light introduction to the highly fascinating field of chaotic dynamical systems. Keeping the analytic treatment at a minimal level, the authors prefer the “geometric” approach, heavily aided by a great number of computer generated pictures and numerical simulations. The book introduces the reader to all the common (both discrete and continuous) chaotic dynamical systems, including the logistic model, the Hénon model and the Lorenz and Rössler model, as well as a plethora of others together with various modifications and generalisations. Though aimed primarily at a non-specialist audience, an extensive bibliography and a chronology of the most important papers in the field make the book an excellent reference source of general interest.
