About this book


Chaos occurs widely in both natural and man-made systems. Recently, examples of the potential usefulness of chaotic behavior have caused growing interest among engineers and applied scientists. In this book the new mathematical ideas in nonlinear dynamics are described in such a way that engineers can apply them to real physical systems. From a review of the first edition by Prof. El Naschie, University of Cambridge: "Small is beautiful and not only that, it is comprehensive as well. These are the spontaneous thoughts which came to my mind after browsing in this latest book by Prof. Thomas Kapitaniak, probably one of the most outstanding scientists working on engineering applications of Nonlinear Dynamics and Chaos today. A more careful reading reinforced this first impression....The presentation is lucid and user friendly with theory, examples, and exercises.... I thought that one can no longer write text books in nonlinear dynamics which could have important impact of fill a gap. Tomasz Kapitaniak's newest book has proved me wrong twofold."
