Description

This Mathematica book provides an introduction to dynamical systems theory, treating both continuous and discrete dynamical systems from basic theory to recently published research material. It includes approximately 400 illustrations, over 400 examples from a broad range of disciplines, and exercises with solutions, as well as an introductory Mathematica tutorial and numerous simple Mathematica programs throughout the text.

The volume is intended for senior undergraduate and graduate students as well as working scientists in applied mathematics, the natural sciences, and engineering.

The attached notebook has been updated for Mathematica 9.
