Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Celebrated mathematician Shlomo Sternberg, a pioneer in the field of dynamical systems, created this modern one-semester introduction to the subject for his classes at Harvard University. Its wide-ranging treatment covers one-dimensional dynamics, differential equations, random walks, iterated function systems, symbolic dynamics, and Markov chains. Supplementary materials offer a variety of online components, including PowerPoint lecture slides for professors and MATLAB exercises.

"Even though there are many dynamical systems books on the market, this book is bound to become a classic. The theory is explained with attractive stories illustrating the theory of dynamical systems, such as the Newton method, the Feigenbaum renormalization picture, fractal geometry, the Perron-Frobenius mechanism, and Google PageRank." — Oliver Knill, PhD, Preceptor of Mathematics, Harvard University.

Synopsis:

Dynamic systems involve the mathematical expression of any fixed rule describing the time dependence of a point's position in space. Examples include mathematical models of the swinging of a clock's pendulum and the flow of water in a pipe. Celebrated mathematician Shlomo Sternberg of Harvard University created this book and supplementary materials for his course of the same name.It offers a variety of online components including PowerPoint lecture slides and MATLAB exercises.

Synopsis:

A pioneer in the field of dynamical systems discusses one-dimensional dynamics, differential equations, random walks, iterated function systems, symbolic dynamics, and Markov chains. Supplementary materials include PowerPoint slides and MATLAB exercises. 2010 edition.
