Encyclopedia of Mathematics and Its Applications #54: Introduction to the Modern Theory of Dynamical Systemsby Anatole Katok
Synopses & ReviewsPublisher Comments:This book provides a selfcontained comprehensive exposition of the theory of dynamical systems. The book begins with a discussion of several elementary but crucial examples. These are used to formulate a program for the general study of asymptotic properties and to introduce the principal theoretical concepts and methods. The main theme of the second part of the book is the interplay between local analysis near individual orbits and the global complexity of the orbit structure. The third and fourth parts develop the theories of lowdimensional dynamical systems and hyperbolic dynamical systems in depth. The book is aimed at students and researchers in mathematics at all levels from advanced undergraduate and up.
Synopsis:A selfcontained comprehensive introduction to the mathematical theory of dynamical systems for students and researchers in mathematics, science and engineering.
Synopsis:This book provides the first selfcontained comprehensive exposition of the theory of dynamical systems as a core mathematical discipline closely intertwined with all main areas of mathematics. The authors introduce and rigorously develop the theory while providing researchers interested in applications with fundamental tools and paradigms. The book contains over 400 systematic exercises aimed at students and researchers in mathematics at all levels from advanced undergraduate up. Scientists and engineers working in applied dynamics, nonlinear science, and chaos will also find many fresh insights in this concrete and clear presentation.
