About this product
- DescriptionDrawing examples from mathematics, physics, chemistry, biology, engineering, ecomics, medicine, politics, and sports, this book illustrates how nlinear dynamics plays a vital role in our world. Examples cover a wide range from the spread and possible control of communicable diseases, to the lack of predictability in long-range weather forecasting, to competition between political groups and nations. After an introductory chapter that explores what it means to be nlinear, the book covers the mathematical concepts such as limit cycles, fractals, chaos, bifurcations, and solitons, that will be applied throughout the book. Numerous computer simulations and exercises allow students to explore topics in greater depth using the Maple computer algebra system. The mathematical level of the text assumes prior exposure to ordinary differential equations and familiarity with the wave and diffusion equations. No prior kwledge of Maple is assumed. The book may be used at the undergraduate or graduate level to prepare science and engineering students for problems in the real world , or for self-study by practicing scientists and engineers.
